Segmentation of product Age.
Pakistan’s population has been growing at a decelerating pace, from 3% in 1981 to 2% in 2004. It took almost 23 years for population growth to decline by just over one percentage point. Decline in the mortality rate owing to the elimination of epidemic diseases, improvements in health facilities, and a modest decline in the fertility rate resulted in negligible decline in population growth. About 50% of the total population falls in the age bracket of 0-19 years. In absolute terms, about 83 million people, equal to the total population of Germany , in Pakistan are below the age of 19 years. However, the decline in population growth and death rates indicate the future changes in demographics of the population. The proportion of the 0-19 age
brackets will continue to decline, while the 20-39 age brackets will continue to increase. It is expected that 30% of the population will be in the age group of 20-39 by 2015. A substantial number of households run their own businesses or are self–employed. The major businesses are import/export, manufacturing, and retail. The nature of business also varies by region. Sialkot is the major centre for leather products, sports goods, and surgical instruments, which are exported all around the world. Faisalabad is home to the textile sector, whilst the major hubs of the financial and industrial activity are Lahore and Karachi . People in rural areas are mostly connected to agriculture. Recognizing the growth of the middle class, several multinationals have expanded the scope of their businesses in Pakistan . Services have also witnessed an enormous growth, offering attractive jobs and careers. IT is another sector that has raised the bar with respect to pay scales, especially in the metropolitan areas.
Majority of the population with primary or no education live in the rural areas of Pakistan . Ideas regarding the importance of education are changing, aided by government programs to promote education. There has been an increase in the number of people attaining a level of education. Currently, the literacy rate is 54% in Pakistan . The government plans to improve it to at least 65% in the coming years. The main target is the rural areas where lack of educational infrastructure and awareness are the main constraints
The increase in incomes of the middle and upper-middle class, led by the growth of the industrial and the services sectors, has had a significant effect on consumer lifestyles. With fewer individuals in a household, and the increasing number of women in the workforce, consumers have limited time at their disposal. There is, therefore, an increased reliance on consumer durables by the average household. This means that demand for appliances has increased noticeably. Items such as microwave ovens tumble driers, and CD players, which were considered to be luxuries, have now become regular items in the urban household. However, appliances such as dishwashers and vacuum cleaners are not so common. The reason for this is that cheap domestic help is available. Dishwashing and house cleaning is usually done by maids and cleaners in the urban areas. The usage of mobile phones has also increased dramatically. In fact, the demand for mobile phones grew by more than 10 times over the 2-year period ending in 2003. Similarly, cable television gained immense popularity in the urban areas, leading to a greater demand for color televisions.

Pakistani consumers – becoming more quality conscious
Pakistanis, in general, are becoming more quality conscious. They are fully aware of the leading brands in consumer
appliances, and now demand after sales service and warranty for products purchased. This is evident by the number of branded American, Italian, and German products that are readily available. It reflects changes in the buying behavior of the customer, and an increased sophistication level of consumers. Pakistanis seem more ready to adapt to new technologies that provide comfort and convenience. The advent of Chinese products is an important development, leading to a general reduction in prices, and hence increased affordability for consumers, which has further enhanced the trend for the increasing demand for durables, especially amongst the lower income consumers, as they are more price sensitive than other segments of the population.
Technology is most attractive for customers if new. Wateen use latest form of broad band in internet services withut cable for the first time in
Pakistan . before wateen wimax no broad band internet without cable in pakistn so wateen use new technology in internet broad band market. WiMAX is one of the latest technologies that have been introduced in Pakistan and it has acquired a huge number of subscribers in a very short period, because of its features, such as high-speed data transfer, wireless availability and integrated services including telephony and VoD. Wateen is the pioneer of WiMAX in Pakistan and it has survived over a long period, being the only WiMAX provider in Pakistan .
Now, Mobilink has also launched its WiMAX services, which brings a competition among both of these companies. Both, Wateen and Mobilink are integrating their services, offering new projects and doing a competitive business these days. At this point, Wateen gets a benefit because of its already established network and working experience, which has highlighted several issues that were unnoticeable before executing of the entire project. Wateen and Mobilink are investing heavily on enhancing their services. Wateen has an advantage of its already built network where investment simply means an upgradation of the entire system while Mobilink will have to set new roots for promoting WiMAX culture in Pakistan . The current market graph for Mobilink’s WiMAX is continuously decreasing, even after having observed all the facts and figures of Wateen’s performance for over a year, Mobilink is still unable to provide a quality service Economic With a per capita GDP of about $1042 in 2006, the World Bank considers Pakistan a developing country. No more than 48.7% of adults are literate, and life expectancy is about 63 years. The population, currently about 165 million, is growing at 2.09% annually. The Gross Domestic Product in the country was $106.3 billion (est. in 2007) with an annual growth rate of 6.4 percent in the same year. The following graph shows the annual average growth rate of the GDP in the economy. However post elections scenario does not support the figures shown by the previous government. Economic experts say that these numbers were cooked up; most of the foreign direct
investment shown was actually US aid coming in the form of military support for war against terror. The Shaukat Aziz government also received support from world bodies like the World Bank and International monetary fund. After September 11, 2001, and Pakistan 's proclaimed commitment to fighting terror, many international sanctions, particularly those imposed by the United States , were lifted. Pakistan 's economic prospects began to increase significantly due to unprecedented inflows of foreign assistance at the end of 2001. Foreign exchange reserves and exports grew to record levels after a sharp decline. The International Monetary Fund lauded Pakistan for its commitment in meeting lender requirements for a $1.3 billion IMF Poverty Reduction and Growth Facility loan, which it completed in 2004, forgoing the final permitted tranche. U.S. assistance has played a key role in moving Pakistan 's economy from the brink of collapse to setting record high levels of foreign reserves and exports, dramatically lowering levels of solid debt. A major part of the $3 billion five-year U.S. assistance package to address Pakistan 's long-term needs in the health and education sectors. Also, despite the earthquake in 2005, GDP growth remained strong at 6.6% in fiscal year 2005/2006. In 2002, the United States led Paris Club efforts to reschedule Pakistan 's debt on generous terms, and in April 2003 the United States reduced Pakistan 's bilateral official debt by $1 billion. In 2004, approximately $500 million more in bilateral debt was granted.
