Illuminer, Inc. Country, Market Entry & Strategy Analysis:
India & Pakistan

This report has been prepared for Illuminer, Inc. a manufacturer of tablets and smartphones. Their smartphones and tablets are assembled in China and then shipped across the world. The company primarily has market share in western markets, specifically the US and across several EU countries. However, as competition is tight between smartphone and tablet manufacturers in more developed western nations, Illuminer has decided to hire KLFH, LLP to explore market potential in two countries with growing 3 and 4G networks – Pakistan and India . Both have telecom companies that have burgeoning data-capable networks and millions of subscribers that would be ripe for Illuminer’s product lines. Illuminer has also asked KLFH to specifically look at two cities for this analysis, as they would serve as test markets for their entry into the country. To this purpose, KLFH has chosen the capital of both nations, New Dehli and Islamabad, for their additional research. KLFH has completed the following country comparison and market entry and strategy analysis, detailed below.
Country and City Overviews
India
India is a highly populous country with a population of 1.21 billion. As the world’s population increases, India still plays an important role because of the fact that India holds over 15% of the overall population in the world. India is a country that has a rather young age group with a median age of 25. Since Illuminer would be selling mobile technologies here, this is a major advantage; a younger population will be more likely to purchases their products than an older population would.
New Delhi is the capital of India. Since there is a considerable amount of migration amongst various states within India, this has caused Delhi to become overpopulated. This overpopulation has limited space…...

... ©1997-2009 Ed4Nurses, Inc. 6 Easy Steps to ABG Analysis ©2003-2009 Ed4Nurses, Inc. WELCOME TO THE 6 EASY STEPS TO ABG ANALYSIS! BY: DAVID W. WOODRUFF, MSN, RN-BC, CNS, CEN Nurses often have difficulty interpreting arterial blood gases (ABGs). Confusion often begins with trying to remember many random rules and lacking a standardized approach to ABGs. In addition, nurses often attempt to analyze too many components of the ABG at the same time. The result is often confusion and an incorrect diagnosis. Therefore, the “6 Easy Steps to ABG Analysis” were developed to provide nurses with an accurate and systematic method of easily interpreting arterial blood gases. The “6 Easy Steps to ABG Analysis” are listed below for easy reference, and will be explained in more detail in the sections that follow. Lastly, examples will be presented with a systematic review of pertinent findings. The 6 Easy Steps to ABG Analysis: 1. Is the pH normal? 2. Is the CO2 normal? 3. Is the HCO3 normal? 4. Match the CO2 or the HCO3 with the pH 5. Does the CO2 or the HCO3 go the opposite direction of the pH? 6. Are the pO2 and the O2 saturation normal? In order for our analysis to be effective, notes will have to be written next to the results on our lab slip. Alternately, the ABG results can be transcribed onto another paper for analysis (see example one below for the format). www.Ed4Nurses.com 1 6 Easy Steps to ABG Analysis ©2003-2009 Ed4Nurses, Inc.

PESTEL demonstrated that the environment is conducive for our company and products though there are a couple social unrests such as bombing but the Nigerian government is doing all it can to stop the situation.

Market Entry Strategy

...Market entry Strategy Glitter is a local company which is currently dealing with fashion accessories, wedding planning and advertising. The company wants increasing its sales by introducing new and modified products on the market. Executives constantly look at new market entry opportunities as a way to generating rapid growth, diversifying their portfolios, and preempting competition—and, occasionally, secretly satisfying their entrepreneurial spirit. There are various ways in which a company can enter in to market. No one market strategy works for all markets. In the case of Glitter, I suggest following strategies are the main entry options open to them. Organic Growth Organic growth strategy involves strengthening your company using its own energy and resources. This is the process of business expansion due to increasing overall customer base, increased output per customer or representative, new sales, or any combination of the above, as opposed to mergers and acquisitions. This approach to company growth is slower than others, but it has relatively low up-front costs, making it an attractive option for small-business owners as Glitter who want to expand their companies but don’t have large amounts of liquid capital. Developing your company’s strengths through organic growth can make you a stronger competitor in your industry. For instance, a company that continually devotes its profits to improving its quality-control department offers increasing value to......

Oral B: Entry in Toothpaste Market (Comparative Analysis)

...Oral care industry in India has evolved from being just a purview of local homemade beneficial powders to attractive, cost-effective and user friendly gels neatly packed in a tube which can be easily applied on a Tooth brush. The use of tooth paste in India can be traced back to the year 1975. Nowadays, people are much more aware of oral hygiene which has led to a phenomenal growth in the Oral care Industry. But still, rural penetration is quite low as people there are still comfortable with the conventional methods of oral care. Due to this low per capita consumption, rural markets offer great opportunities for penetration. Rising per capita income of people and increasing awareness through advertisements, print media, etc is increasing the demand for oral care products. This marks a sharp transition from use of tooth powders to the use of value added toothpastes like mouth washes, gels and teeth whitening products. Currently the size of global oral care market is about $30 billion. Out of this, India contributes 5% of the total market which estimates the Indian oral care market to be $1.5 billion. The Indian oral care market registered an annual growth of 13% during FY 13. On the other hand, the growth in global market was 3% during the same period. The major players in the Indian Oral care industry are: Colgate, Unilever, Dabur and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK). P&G is a new entrant with the launch of Oral B Pro-Health in July‘13 in the Indian market.

Market Entry Strategy

...A market entry strategy is to plan the a method of delivering goods or services to a target market and distributing them there. when importing or exporting services, it refers to establishing and managing contracts in a foreign country.Market entry is more than examining a set of economic data. Successful market entry begins with assessing feasibility, factors such as the trends, the culture, the nature of the competition and the opportunity. There are a variety of ways in which organizations can enter foreign markets. The three main ways are by direct or indirect export or production in a foreign country. Exporting methods include direct or indirect export. In direct exporting the organization may use an agent, distributor, or overseas subsidiary, or act via a Government agency. In effect, the Grain Marketing Board in Zimbabwe, being commercialized but still having Government control, is a Government agency. The Government, via the Board, are the only permitted maize exporters. Bodies like the Horticultural Crops Development Authority (HCDA) in Kenya may be merely a promotional body, dealing with advertising, information flows and so on, or it may be active in exporting itself, particularly giving approval (like HCDA does) to all export documents. In direct exporting the major problem is that of market information. The exporter's task is to choose a market, find a representative or agent, set up the physical distribution and documentation, promote and price the product.......
