PRICING STRATEGIES USED BY BRANDS OF VARIOUS CATEGORIES :

As in coconut oil category, parachute is the market leader and hence all the new brands coming in generally follow their pricing and thus this follows the Going Rate Pricing Policy

Different Schemes that are offered by brands like navratna and bajaj almond tends to destroy the leader and thus follow the predator pricing strategy. Some luxury brands like Loreal and Garnier give value to customers and thus follow the value pricing strategy.

PRICING STRATEGIES BY DIFFERENT RETAILERS:

Easy Day(SuperMarket)
Buyers decide on pricing strategies depending on locality and nearby retailers.Selling at a discount of Rs1 or 0.50 paise for most hair oils.

Big Bazaar (Hyper Market)


Sell in packs of three and reduces the total mrp by Rs5-8

Smaller SKUs are also sometimes free with shampoo and other hair care products

WholeSaler

Sell at a margin of 8-10%.Sell it local kirana stores incase stock is leftover.

Kirana Stores/Medical Stores

Sold at MRP and earned a margin fixed by the distributor of the company

FIELD EXPERIENCES:1. 2.

Difficulties In Comparison of prices Shopkeepers in supermarkets/hypermarkets were not willing to let us note down their pricing strategy. Wholesalers were not willing to explain their pricing strategy or talk about the margin earned. Harder to compare the pricing since they sold in boxes of 12 or 10 (min) Some brands sold their products in different skus such as 190 ml or 50 ml.Doubling the qty did not give accurate results. Parachute even though the market leader brand some of its product lines were very expensive targeting niche segments which we observed only during this experience.

eg Parachute Advanced Therapie Hair oil(Rs125) 100ml was costlier than Himalaya Anti Dandruff Shampoo(Rs100).

CONCLUSION

Pricing based on their target profits Various products targeting Various customers.

Channel for distribution decides the amount at which the product reaches the consumer
More the number of middlemen, more is the price Better inventory management & better channel management effectively reduces the operational costs and thus can reduce the price further.
