EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Men have already become masters of this world as well as the universe as they have already climbed the greatest heights of mountains, visited the unknown depths of the oceans, deeply studied the mystery of the universe, explored the moon several times and now daring to unleash the symbol of life even on Mars. All the made possible due to scientific revolution. Research & Development, Inventories & Discoveries. Plastic is such a things, which is accompanying us in almost every sphere of life. Plastic is a manmade material, whose use is inevitable, ineluctable & ineradicable. Among all other available materials plastics are infallible, inviolable & invaluable, as it is the only material, which can be easily formed into various shapes by pressing, heating, mailing & moulding. It is a deserved to quote here that, “ plastic is a divine gift to mankind” by us. Plastics, known as the fourth generation of materials, have already found their place among the established materials & are invading newer theories today. Whether one is purchasing a milk pouch or watering the plant or driving a car to reach at the destination or typing on his personal computer or laptop for a business decision or is welcomed back at the door on the screen, one finds plastics to be one constant companion. It is truly an age of plastics. The history of growth of plastic pipes industry reflects the creativity, innovativeness & ability on the part of both producers & consumers to exploit the most out of the specific characteristic of these materials. There are many plastic industries in India, who are making products of various kind made of plastics out of those industrials, some are producing pipes & fittings, water tanks made of PVC & polyethylene ( high density & low density ) materials. Ori-Plast is a leading plastic pipe manufacturing industrial house in India. Ori-Plast started its manufacturing 42 years back at a time, when few people heard of them, much less understood their potential. Now Ori-Plast pipes are an ideal economical substitute of conventional in all possible conceivable use. Before the invention of modern plastics, the shapes of many articles that we use in everyday life were decided by the physical properties & validities of the materials of which they were made. Stone & wood, two very common such materials, have obvious limitations, for example, they cannot be cut very thin & they cannot be formed into different shapes. Plastics processes the properties like elasticity nonconductive, resistance to heat, cold, water and scratches normal to oil, water or acid. Plastic in India was a post world war phenomenon. The first plastic material “celluloid” was produced in1940. Until 1962, the global production of plastic was about 4-lakh tones. It went up to 10 million tones by 1962. The industry is expecting to grow at 5% world wide, almost 5 million tones per annum. Industries such as

Institute of Business and Computer Studies


automobiles, domestics appliances, packaging, travel luggage, consumer electronics & refrigeration are the main consumers of plastics. India produced basic polymers such as LDPE, HDPE & PVC, polypropylene, polystyrene etc. However, the demand has always outstripped local supplies & the industry has been largely dependent upon imported plastic resins. The plastic raw material consumption in India during 1970 was little over 9-lakh tones & these may exceed 3 million tones by 2005. The first thermoplastic resin plant came into begin in1945. The world per capita consumption has reached 1 kg in spite of many converters in the business. India has 20,000 converters out of 1-lakh in world. Until 1985, plastic exports have remained at low level of 60 million, but by 1992, they had grown to 110 million $.

Marketing Research: Function & Objective Research is a process of gathering, recording & analyzing of critical & relevant facts about any problem in any branch of human activity, like that, Marketing Research refers to the methods of finding & analyzing facts to assists manager’s in making rational marketing decision. Definition “ Marketing Research is the systematic problem analysis, model building & fact finding for the purpose of important decision making & control in the marketing of goods & services”. ( Philip Kotler )

Functions of Marketing Research Following are the functions of Marketing Research: a) It Facilitates The Decision-making Process: Marketing Research helps in making decisions. A manager as faced with various alternatives, but he has to choose the best alternatives. If he makes the decision by his own, he will be under a great risk, as his decision are not supporting by any relevant data. Here Marketing Research comes to help or aid. The information gathered through marketing research will help the managers to make right choice among the various alternatives. b) It helps to Reduce Risk Associated With The Decision-Making Process: Decision-making is made for future. But future is always is uncertain. Marketing Research helps in reducing the uncertainties that may arouse in future. Marketing Research provides a solid base for decision-making process. Research provides information regarding future. It anticipates the future. Since the techniques of Marketing Research are based on scientific methods, it can provide a definite fact for decision-making process. c) It helps in Discovering the Profitable Opportunities: It helps the firm in discovering opportunities, which can be profitability exploited. Marketing Research helps in finding out the profitable opportunities for the marketer through a search for the good opportunities from the market. Example: The concept of Milk Powder for making tea & coffee, where the consumption is high but availability of milk is difficult, by ‘Everyday’ milk powder has been a grand success, which was possible because of marketing research. Institute of Business and Computer Studies


The chief objectives are: a) To measure promotional effects: Market is changing rapidly. Companies follow different strategies to promote a product or a service. Research enables the researcher to measure the strength & weakness of the promotion mix elements to achieve better result. b) To Measure Consumers Responses: Companies are keen to know the consumer response for all its efforts made in delivering the product. Studying consumer response can be known through market product testing. Consumers satisfaction & dissatisfaction, helps the companies to improve the product in terms of quality, design, size, colour, appearance & So. c) To Know The Buyer: Marketing is linked with people always. Each firm tends to know all persons, who are willing to pay for the firm’s products & services. The knowledge includes about number of buyer, frequency of buying, location, social category & So on. d) To Know Market Cost & Profits: Market cost means, an input employed by a company to execute its marketing program. And, today the market cost has raised to such an extend that, optimization of profit has became a big problem. Research makes marketing management cost conscious & which helps in its control & reduction & as a result profit rises. e) To Master The External Forces: Each company needs reliable information about competitions, company shares, expansions, government policies. Technical changes, etc. These forces always changes & in turn affects the market. So, research in these areas is a most to survive & become successful. f) To Design & Implement Marketing Control: Marketing Control is the final job in marketing management. The marketing performance should be monitored & feed backed by comparing the actual performance with the standard. Through which we can easily point out the deviations, if any. Then, we can rectify them & provide revision for that. RESEARCH PROCESS Research process consists of series of actions or steps necessary to carry out the research effectively. It consists of the following steps. Institute of Business and Computer Studies


Step 1 : Formulating the Research Problem: Selecting the Research problem is 1 st step of any research process. There are 2 types of research problems: • •

Those which relates to state of nature. Those which relate relationship between variables.

The 1st work of a researcher is to find out the problems he wants to study. There are many aspects while formulating the Research Problem, such as: • • • •

Understanding the problem. Surveying the Materials. Discussion with colleagues & people having relevant knowledge. Knowing the suitability of time, period, sources, limits & scope of the problem etc.

Step 2: Extensive Literature Survey: The 2nd step is to write down the brief summary of the problem. So an extensive literature study is required here. Journal, conference proceeding’s Govt. reports, books etc. are helpful. A good library helps greatly at this stage. Step 3: Development of a Working Hypothesis: It is the step in which, the researcher stages clearly the hypothesis that is to be proved or rejected. It can be developed through the following approaches. • • • •

Discussion with colleagues & Experts & seeking a solution. Examine of available data or records, which are helpful in the problem. Review of similar studies and similar problems. Personal investigation including field interviews to get a deep picture of the practical aspects of the problem.

Step 4: Preparing the Research Design: The Researcher required preparing a research design. The preparation of the research Design involves the following aspects: • • • • •

The means of obtaining the information. The skill of the Researcher & his staffs. Explanation of the selected means for obtaining the information. The time available for research. The cost involved in conducting the research etc.

Step 5: Determining the Sample Design: Institute of Business and Computer Studies


It is practically impossible to carry on a research on the whole class of the subject matter or the ‘population’, which is universal in nature. Hence, we select only few items from the Universe or class or population for our studies, which represented the whole class or population. Technically these smaller representatives of the whole class or population are called a ‘sample’. The researcher must decide the way of selecting the sample, which is called Sample Design. The important Sample Designs are: • • • • • • •

Deliberate Sampling: purpose or non-probability sampling. Simple Random Sampling: Chance or probability sampling. Systematic Sampling. Stratified Sampling: ( Non-homogeneous group ) Data Sampling/ Area Sampling. On the stage sampling & Sequential Sampling.

Step 6: Data Collection: The task of data collection being out after a research problem has been defined & research design has been chalked out. Without a correct data a successful study is not possible. There are 2 types of data collection i.e, • •


Primary Data: Primary Data can be collected either through experiment or survey. For this project, the primary data are collected mainly from dealers, sub dealers & consumers of Ori-plast in Balasore & Bhadrak district with the help of structured & undistinguished questionnaires & personal interview.

Secondary Data: Secondary Data were mainly collected from internal source like company’s sales figure, company profile, sale call report, inventory records, dealers record, customer records etc.

Step 7: Execution of the Project: It is the very important step in research process. If it proceeds on the correct lines; the collected data will be accurate & dependable. Collection of data should be systematic, realistic & well controlled. Step 8: Analysis of Data: After data collection, next step involves in analyzing them. The various processes, such as coding, editing, tabulating etc. should be done with perfection use of symbols, graphs, tables, images, avoidance of grammatical mistakes & clarity is checked here. Step 9: Hypothesis Testing: Institute of Business and Computer Studies


After analysis the researcher is in a position to test the hypothesis. Does the hypothesis proved or rejected? Various tests, such as ‘Z’ test, ‘T’ test, ‘F’ test chisquare test, Anova etc. have been developed by statisticians for this purpose. Hypothesis testing results in either accepting the hypothesis or rejecting it. Step 10: Generalization & Interpretation: If a hypothesis is tested & upheld several times, it is possible for the researcher to arrive at a generalization. In fact, the real value of a research uses in the ability to arrive at a certain generalizations. If the researcher had no hypothesis to being with he might seek to explain his findings on the basis of some theory i.e. interpretation. Interpretation trigger new queation, which in turn may lead to future researches.

Step 11: Preparation of the Report/Thesis: Finally, the researcher has to prepare the report. The layout of the report should be as follows. a) The preliminary Pages: • • • • •

FINAL SHAPE After that the compounded materials feed in to the hopper of the extruder manually or through vacuum feeding process. Then the material goes to the extruder to heat the specific temperature. It is heart of the machine. The hot melted materials pass through screw and barred, then external parameter heating change the powdered material into viscous liquid or plasticised. After that the plasticised materials pass through die to take shape of the product, then it pass through the sizing die to take the final shape. Before reaching the take-up zone finally the pipe pass through the frozen bath for cooling. The stretching of the pipe is done according to production requirement in a synchronized manner to attain the regular wall thickness throughout length of pipe and after that the pipe pass through the cutting zone to cut down its required length.

Introduction : Marketing is challenging & exciting. It ia as old as humankind is. It has its origin in the fact, men is a creature of needs & wants. “Society can exist when a large number of people want something a few people have”. It is necessary for both group to be mutually aware of this need. Marketing is indeed on ancient Art. It is the most complex & challenging function performed by every business firm. Marketing is a social & managerial process by which individual & groups obtain what they need & want through creating, offering & exchanging products of value with others. ( Philip Kotler ) Marketing – Mix Strategy : Marketing mix refer to the amount & kinds of marketing variables, the firm is using at a particular time. The idea of the ‘Mix’ of ‘Marketing’ function was conceived by Prof. Neil.H. Bordon. According to him, “the marketing mix refers to the appointment of efforts, the combination, the designing & the integration of the elements of marketing in to programme or mix, which on the basis of an appraisal of the market force will best achieve the objectives of an enterprise at a given time”. The four P’s of marketing mix:- The marketing element centre around four distinct functions, sometimes called the four P’s i.e., product, price, place, promotion. All these functions are considered in planning a marketing strategy & any one may be enhanced, deducted or changed in some degree in order to create the strategy necessary to efficiently & effectively, sell of a product. a) Product Strategy : It includes : • Quality. • Design. • Brand name. • Packaging & service, etc. b) Pricing Strategy : It includes : • Level of price • Discounts and rebates. • Allowances. • Credit term etc. Institute of Business and Computer Studies


c) Place Strategy : It includes : • Channels • Coverage • Locations. • Transport, etc. d) Promotion Strategies : It includes : • Sales Promotion. • Advertising. • Sales force • Direct marketing, etc. Marketing Mix Strategy of Ori-plast ltd.: In plastic industries, marketing plays a critical role in the successful establishment of the brands & procurement of major market share. There are always new companies emerging with new techniques, hence company should be alert & keep constant eyes on the existing market. Ori-plast has its own-strategy of marketing mix let us discuss the 4.p marketing strategy of Ori-plast limited. a) Product Strategy of Ori-plast ltd.: When an organization introduced a product in to a market, they must overcome various questions, such as: • • • •

Who is the product aimed at? What benefit will they except? How do they plan to position the product within the market? What different advantage will the product offer over their competitor? Etc.

Ori-plast company has a number of product objectives such as: • • • •

Sales growth. Utilization of resources. Utilization of wastages. Taking advantage of profitable opportunities.

1) Product Variety : Ori-plast is a premium house in manufacturing pipes & fittings in wide range of polymers i.e., PVC, HDPE, UPVC, MDPE etc. it products are for transportation of Institute of Business and Computer Studies


portable water line, plumbing pipe & sewerage line, rain water line, tube well, chemical slurry, ash sewerage line, dredging pipe lines & water/chemical strange tanks etc. 2) Product Design : Product designing is another way to add customer value. Ori-plast has outstanding product design such as attractive colour pipes & fittings for drinking water transportation. They are also easy in installation, safe & in expensive to use. 3) Product Features : A product can be offered with variety of features. The company can provide more value to a product by adding more features. Ori-plast products have various features to attract both the domestic as well as industrial consumers. The company has appointed liaison officers, who frequently come across with consumers & dealers in order to know good & bad features of Ori-plast products. 4) Product Servicing : Customer service is another product strategy. Providing adequate post sale services as maintenance & repair of products are complex things. In Ori-plast, the pipelines we tested at 5 times the working pressure mentioned on them. The company too assured its customers to serve the pipe & fittings in case of any defect found. 5) Laboratory Facilities : The company has a fully equipped laboratory for testing of raw materials as well as finished products. The raw materials & finished products are inspected by third party inspecting agencies like: CROWN AGENT, SAGS, RITES INDIA, and CIPET & EPM etc. in regular interval. 6) Brand Name : Branding refers to use of a name, term, symbol or combination of these to distinguish a product from the competitors. Ori-plast is a well-known brand for its quality in the business circle. 7) Quality : Quality means, totality of feature & characteristics of a thing that bear on its ability to satisfy implied needs. Ori-plast ltd. is maintaining the no 1-quality product. It offers products after testing 5 times. It uses best quality raw materials with sophisticated machineries. For last 41 years, it supplying the best quality pipes with least defects. b) Pricing Strategy of Ori-plast ltd.: The second major variables, that a marketing manager controls is ‘price’. Price level decisions are especially important because they effect both the number of sales firm Institute of Business and Computer Studies


makes & how much money it earns. Price is simply the amount of money that consumers are willing to pay for a product or service. It is the only mix, which generates a turnover for the organization. Pricing is difficult & must reflect supply & demand relationship. Pricing should take into account the following factors : • • • • •

Fixed & Variable costs. Competitors. Company Objectives. Proposed Positioning Strategies. Target Group & Willingness to pay.

There may be differences in price based on variables such as age of the customers, location of sale, season etc. Companies usually adjust their basic prices to account for various customer differences & changing situations. There are seven price adjustment strategies, they are: Psychological Pricing, Discount & Allowance Pricing, Geographical Pricing, Segment Pricing, Promotional Pricing, Value Pricing & international Pricing. Pricing objective should be explicitly stated because they have a direct effect or pricing policies as well as the method used to set prices.

A Customer: A customer refers to individuals or households that purchase goods & services generated within the economy. The word ‘customer’, historically derived from, ‘custom’, which implies that, a customer was someone who frequented a particular shop, who made it a habit to purchase goods there, & with whom the shopkeeper had to maintain a relationship to keep his or her ‘custom’, which implies expectation of future purchase. Customer needs may be defined as the goods or services a customer requires to achieve specific goals. Different needs are of varying importance to the customer. Customer expectations are influenced by cultural values, advertising, marketing & other communications. Both customer needs & expectations may be determined through interviews, surveys, conversations, data mining or other methods of collecting information. Customers at times do not have a clear understanding of their needs. Assisting in determining needs can be a valuable service to the customer. CUSTOMER SATISFACTION: ‘Customer Satisfaction,’ is a business term. It is a measures of how products & services supplied by a company meet or surpass customer expectation. It is seen as a key performance indicator within business. In a competitive market place, where business competes for customers, customer satisfaction is seen as a key differentiator & increasingly has become a key element of business strategy. Organization are increasingly interested in retaining customers, while targeting noncustomers. Measuring customer satisfaction provides an indication of how successful the organization is at providing products or services to the market place. ‘Satisfaction’ is a psychological state. In general, ‘satisfaction’ is a person’s feelings of pleasure or disappointment resulting from comparing a product’s perceived performance in relation to his or her expectations. If the performance matches the expectations, the customer is satisfied. If the performance exceeds expectations, the customer is highly satisfied or delighted. A company would be wish to measure customer satisfaction regularly because one key to customer retention is customer satisfaction. A highly satisfied customer generally stays loyal longer, buys more as the company introduces new products & upgrades existing products, talks favourably about the company & its products, pays less attention to competing brands & is less sensitive to price, offers product or service ideas to the company & costs less to serve than a new customer, because transactions are routine. A number of methods exist to measure customer satisfaction, such as• • •

Periodic survey. Monitoring customer loss rate. Net promoter scare method.

SERVQUAL method etc.

BUILDING CUSTOMER VALUE, SATISFACTION & LOYALTY Today, companies face their toughest competition ever. Moving from a product & sales philosophy to a marketing philosophy, however, gives a company a better chance of out performing competition. John Chambers, CEO of CISCO systems, put it well; “Make your customer the centre of your culture”. Therefore, companies in order survive in this competitive Era must give importance to following factors in order to deliver customer satisfaction & became the market leader. These are : 1. CUSTOMER PERCEIVED VALUE (CPV): Perceived value is the value promised by the company’s value proposition & perceived by the customer. It is believed that, customers choose between competitive brand offerings based on which marketer delivers the most customer value. Customer value = Customer Benefits – Customer costs. 2. PRODUCTS & SERVICE QUALITY: Satisfaction will also depend on product & service quality. According to American society for quality control; “Quality, is the totality of features & characteristics of a product or service that bear on its ability to satisfy stated or implied needs”. This is clearly a customer centred definition. A company that satisfies most of its customers needs most of the time is called a quality company. Marketers who do not know the language of quality improvement, manufacturing & operations will become obsolete very soon for them. 3. RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT: In these days of liberalization, companies cannot simply stay domestic & expect to maintain their markets; they are making their operations internationalized. In deciding to go beyond the domestic arena, a company needs to define its global marketing objectives & policies. Three important criterions in respect to this are: Market alternativeness, risk & competitive advantage. All these necessitates, the company involves in global market R & D program. 4. ATTRACTING RETAINING & GROWING CUSTOMERS: Customer are becoming harder to please. They are smarter, more price conscious, more demanding, less forgiving & many competitors with equal or better offers approve them.

Institute of Business and Computer Studies


According to Jeffrey Gitomer, the challenge is not necessarily to produce satisfied customers as several competitors can do this. The challenge is to produce delighted & loyal customers. 5. FORMING STRONG CUSTOMER BONDS: Companies that want to from strong customer bonds need to attend the following basics: • •

Adding Financial Benefits: It can be done by providing allowances, discounts, rewards etc to the customers who buy frequently & in substantial amounts. Adding Social Benefits: The companies should follow societal marketing concepts. A principle of enlightened marketing that holds that a company should make good marketing decisions by considering consumers wants, the company’s requirements, customer’s long run interests & society’s long run interests.

6. COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE: It means a company’s ability to perform in one or more ways that competitors cannot or will not match. Michale Porter identified two basic types of competitive advantage:• •

Cost Advantage. Differentiation Advantage.


Distinctive Competencies

Cost Advantage or Differentiation

Value Creation


RESOURCES & CAPABILITIES: According to the Resources-based view, in order to develop a competitive advantage the firm must have resources & capabilities that are superior to those if its competitors Institute of Business and Computer Studies


without this spuriously m, the competitors simply could replicate what the firm was doing & any advantage quickly would disappear. The following are some example of resources: • • •

Patent & Trademarks. Reputation of the firm. Brand equity etc.

Capabilities refer to the firm’s ability to utilize its resources effectively. An example of capability is the ability to bring a product to market faster than competitors. The firm’s resources & capabilities together from its distinctive competencies. These competencies enable innovation, efficiency, quality & customer responsiveness, all of which can be leveraged to create a cost advantage or a differentiation advantage. VALUE CREATION: The achieve competitive advantage, the firm must perform one or more value creating activities in a way that creates more overall value than the competitors do. Superior value is created through lower costs or superior benefits to the customer. Ori-plast ltd. is distinctly ahead from its competitors. It is in an advantages position due to its differentiation advantage. It gives the product quality & service that no other can provide. It uses the best quality raw materials with its proper combination to create best & durable plastics. All renowned firms & institutions like NALCO, UNICEF, Birla Tyres, Department of water supply & Sewerage, Nepal, Hindustan Zincs limited, SAIL, PPL, Tata Hydro Electric Power supply co. ltd. etc. uses Oriplast products.

FINDINGS For analysis of dealer responses it is found that Ori-Plast has market dealer in manufacturing or selling of pipes in Orissa market. The performance of the company is all most good. As a market share of pipes among dealers and customers held by Ori-Plast and weakness find out by the research in analysis of question arises. STRENGTH: • • • •

Ori-plast is the brand leader in manufacturing plastic pipes not only in Orissa, but also in the eastern region of our country. It has a very good reputation & wide market share, because of 40 years of hard-earned experience, since 1968, when most of the people hardly heard of pipes made of plastics. Ori-plast ltd. has succeeded in establishing the brand equity in the minds of its customers, not for its reliability, durability, customer’s satisfaction, but also for its product differentiation trustworthiness as well as versatility. Ori-plast ltd. adopt the changing modern techniques very fast & uses the world class raw materials, which leads a good quality products & helps the company overcome any crisis facing after sales.

For maintaining excellent standards, it has got. ISO: 9000:2000 certificates and continuing since last 6 years.

WEAKNESS: • • • • •

According to dealer responses, the companies do not provide better incentives for sales promotion. As compared to other brands, Ori-plast does not spend more in the area of advertising. However, in today’s competitive business environment, advertisement plays a vital role influencing consumer buying decisions. Due to increasing in consumption patterns of the consumers, the company should go for increasing the efficiency of the production unit. To create more awareness in remote areas, the organization should give more & more advertisements of its products in different medias like local newspaper, billboards, radio, TV etc. The R & D efforts should be improved to increase the application of plastic pipes in other areas except in certain restricted areas, which will increase the volume of sales.

This the era of globalization. The worlds is getting smaller day by day. Communication, travel & transport have made the worlds a smaller place. The current millennium has unfolded new business rules. The market place is not, what it used to be 10/15 years back. It is changing radically because of major societal forces such as technological advances, globalization etc. These forces have creates new behaviors & challenges.

Now customers not only looking for higher quality, better service, but also they are looking for customization. They are becoming more price sensitive in search of value. After researching the marketing strategies of ori-plast limited my suggestion are given below: •

There is no doubt that the company is offering the best quality, but today’s customers are very sensitive. As other company are also spending much more in R & D to produce better quality even at a relating lower price. There fore, the company should go for a regular periodically analysis for further quality up gradation with latest technology & in a less expensive way through R & D. The organization depends a lot on private transport services, as it has no transaction of its own delivery. Hence it should develop its own transportation system.

SUMMARY Institute of Business and Computer Studies


Customer buying behaviour is affected by various factors, which determine the product and brand preferences of customers. Therefore, it is very essential for marketers to understand the impact of these factors of consumer buying behaviour because it helps them design marketing strategies to appeal to consumer preference. The completely marketing process revolves round one central point i.e., customer. Marketing is customer-focused. It starts & ends with the consumer. Therefore, customer satisfaction lays a pivotal role in affecting the marketing strategy as well as future of an organization. We are in the 21st century. Our age is termed as Ultra Modern. In this era of globalization, the world is becoming smaller day-by-day. Trade barriers among nations are being reduced. Communication, travel & transport have made the world a smaller place. Global marketing is the only way to satisfy these needs. Global marketing means, utilization of a standardized marketing strategies & uniform marketing programs of product development, production, advertising etc, in world wide markets to achieve marketing objectives. Therefore, now the whole world is a market place. Now-a-days customers are expecting higher quality, better service with some customization. They are obtaining extensive product information from the satellite television & internets, which permits them to shop more intelligently. They are becoming more price sensitive in search of value. The brand manufacturer are also facing intense competition from domestic as well as foreign brands. Retailers are facing problems with newspapers, organization, TV, Direct-to-customer ads, Home shoping TV & internet. Companies are changing their trends in the form of re-engineering, outsourcing, bench making etc. The marketers are also rethinking their philosophies, concepts & tools. Therefore, it is an all changed scenario. Change is necessary just to keep the level of given stability. The economic & social environment is so dynamic that, without change that would be adaptive to the changed environment, even the most successful organization will be left behind, unable to survive in the new environment. After analysing the data & information from the consumers & dealers by direct survey method, it is observed that Ori-plast has occupied the major share of market. There is an awesome gap between its nearest competitors. However, the gap is becoming narrower day-by-day. So Ori-plast need to know each competitors strategies in various sectors such as, Investment, production, diversification, resources, channel operation, price-change, latest technique adoption & advertisement etc. in order to identify the important sector, which needs proper attention & course of action. Other aspects, which are observed by personal experience & study about Ori-plast Company, are as follows: •

Although the company is providing good discount to their dealer, but some additional commissions or incentives / packages may increase their motivation, which in return will have a possible impact on sales.

Institute of Business and Computer Studies


• • •

The company must give more emphasis on their advertisement media. They should recruit more & sufficient media to bring in business. If the company checks the piracy or duplicity then it will do the trick. It will not only increase sales but also will help in protecting the goodwill of the company. Hence, I conclude that, Ori-plast is a well-known brand among the end users, which concentrates on the quality of its products with reasonable price. It also aims of the customer satisfaction & profit for organization.

Lastly, I would like to convey my salutation to all staff & authority of Ori-plast limited, as well as to the dealers & customers, who have spend their valuable tome with me & sharing their wide experience, which helped me a lot in completing my study.
