Description for Winning in the Indian Market: Understanding the Transformation of Consumer India

From the Inside Flap

India is on the brink of a consumer revolution. With the government implementing increasingly laissez–faire policies to open up the domestic market and with a burgeoning middle–class population, the long–term potential is spectacular. However, India′s complex consumer structure and characteristics are proving to be a challenge to many successful global companies. India ranks in the world′s top ten countries in terms of population and GDP, but ranks below 100 in percapita income. Never before in history have so many low–income people been subjected to such overwhelming economic progress and the effects of globalization and technological advances. Winning in the Indian Market: Understanding thje Transformation of Consumer India provides CEOs and business leaders with a factual and holistic insight into Consumer India. It identifies the key business strategies, mindse4ts, and assumptions which global corporations should be taking on board. What are the traps and minefields that global entrants into India do not see and which cause the most trouble? What are the big opportunities that they fail to go after? what are the big transformations that this market demands and which company strategies fail to make? This insightful and entertaining book, from one of India′s leading consumer experts, provides thought–provoking answers to these questions, and more. To win in an emerging market like the India, new business strategies, perseverance, and innovation are crucial. Rama Bijapurkar draws on her years of experience with some of India′s Leading companies and multinationals operating in India, to offer the keys to success in this complex yet compelling market.
