MARKET RESEARCH: The importance of market research when entering the Indian marketOnline
Indian market is a complex web of an extraordinarily diverse demographic. Our average population density is close to 400 persons/Square Km (as compared to 34 for US & 145 for China) while the GDP per capita is $2,100 (it's $65,000 and $11,000 for US & China, respectively). The complexity only begins here as the population is further divided in terms of languages and culture as we move from state to state. Navigating through such strange socioeconomic characteristics requires companies to be careful and agile in terms of market research. It's important for companies to be right with their STP to avoid major investment mishaps. My session would be focused on the kind of mix companies can deploy to be fool proof, as far as their goto market strategy is concerned.
