MARKET PLAN OF SUFI GROUP OF INDUSTRIES


INTRODUCTION:
Marketing decisions generally fall into the following four controllable
categories:
Product
Price
Place (distribution)
Promotion
The term "marketing mix" became popularized after Neil H. Borden
published his 1964 article, The Concept of the Marketing Mix. Borden
began using the term in his teaching in the late 1940's after James Culliton
had described the marketing manager as a "mixer of ingredients". The
ingredients in Borden's marketing mix included product planning, pricing,
branding, distribution channels, personal selling, advertising, promotions,
packaging, display, servicing, physical handling, and fact finding and
analysis. E. Jerome McCarthy later grouped these ingredients into the four
categories that today are known as the 4 P's of marketing, depicted below:

BOSTON CONSULTANCY GROUP:

10

PROJECT OF SUFI GROUP OF INDUSTRIES

According to the Boston consultancy group (BCG) some of the products of


Sufi falls in star, cash cow, question mark and dogs.
According to the BCG rules following are the details of products follows in
the different categories.

1. Stars (high growth, high market share):


Stars are high growth businesses or products competing in
markets where they are relatively strong compared with the
competition. Often they need heavy investment to sustain their
growth.
The products of Sufi included in stars are as follows:

Sufi soya bean cooking oil


Sufi sunflower cooking oil
Sufi canola cooking oil
Sufi banaspati ghee

REASONS:
From overall market share of Sufi group of industries market
share of the above products is relatively high, as these are the products
which are the running products and for which Sufi is recognized and Sufi is
generating heavy income through these items. But these products are
being used in different edibles so they need continuous improvement on
the quality, so they have to make heavy budget for research and
development to sustain this product in star and to add more features in it to
attract people.EG: low cholesterol, low fat etc.

2. Cash Cows (low growth, high market share):


Cash cows are low-growth businesses or products with a
relatively high market share. They are mature, successful businesses
with relatively little need for investment.
11

PROJECT OF SUFI GROUP OF INDUSTRIES

The products of Sufi included in cash cows are as follows:

Sufi mineral water


Sufi soap special quality
Sufi soap vermicelli
Safon dishwashing liquid

REASONS:
From these above products of Sufi group of industries Sufi is getting
heavy revenue, the market share of these products is also very high in the
market if we compare them within Sufi group of industries and these
products do not need budget for any research and development so we
consider these all above products of Sufi as cash cow, as through these
products Sufi group of industries is generating heavy revenues.

3. Dogs (low growth, low market share):


Unsurprisingly, the term dogs refers to businesses or products
that have low relative share in unattractive, low-growth markets.
Dogs may generate enough cash to break-even, but they are rarely, if
ever, worth investing in.
The products of Sufi included in dogs are as follows:

Sufi super
Sufi brown
Sufi nirol
Sufi mini

REASONS:
The above products of Sufi group of industries are in dog category.
Because these products have very little market share and growth rate of
these products is very low. These products are not generating any revenue
for Sufi group of industries. Now these products needs a lot of

12

PROJECT OF SUFI GROUP OF INDUSTRIES

improvement to sustain in the market and to move them in question mark


portion or in near future company will loose these products.

4. Question Marks (high growth, low market share):


Question marks are businesses or products with low market
share but which operate in higher growth markets.This suggest that
they have potential, but may require substantial investments in order
to grow market share at the expense of more powerful competitors.
The products of Sufi included in question marks are as follow:

Sufi dishwashing powder


Safon dishwashing bar
Sufi glycerin
Sufi darja awwal
Sufi toilet soap

REASONS:
These above products of Sufi group of industries falls in question
mark category because these products have low market share but needs a
lot of budget for improvement of the product to increase its market share
because it is necessary if company would not take serious attention these
items will move to dogs category and then may be diminish, so these
products needs special attention to move them in star category and to
generate revenue from these items.
Conventional strategic thinking suggests there are four possible
strategies for each SBU:
(1) Build Share: here the company can invest to increase market share
(for example turning a "question mark" into a star)
(2) Hold: here the company invests just enough to keep the SBU in its
present position

13

PROJECT OF SUFI GROUP OF INDUSTRIES

(3) Harvest: here the company reduces the amount of investment in order
to maximize the short-term cash flows and profits from the SBU. This may
have the effect of turning Stars into Cash Cows.
(4) Divest: the company can divest the SBU by phasing it out or selling it in order to use the resources elsewhere (e.g. investing in the more
promising "question marks").
Some limitations of the Boston Consulting Group Matrix include:
High market share is not the only success factor
Market growth is not the only indicator for attractiveness of a market
Sometimes Dogs can earn even more cash as Cash Cows

MARKET GRID

14

PROJECT OF SUFI GROUP OF INDUSTRIES

INTRODUCTION:
Every company at different times uses different marketing
strategies to expand itself. Sometimes they move to other geographical
areas, sometimes they do advertisements, sometimes they attract their
customers through advertisements, and sometimes they start making
entirely different products to expand the business.
So, all these things fall in the market grid and can be explained as
follows:

Market Penetration (existing markets, existing products):


With this approach, Company tries to sell more of the same things to the
same people. Here they might:
Advertise, to encourage more people within your existing market to
choose your product, or to use more of it
Introduce a loyalty scheme
Launch price or other special offer promotions
Increase your sales force activities, or
Buy a competitor company (particularly in mature markets)

Sufi creates market penetration through:

Promotions
Billboards
Different sizes
Packaging
Availability of products

Market Development (new markets, existing products):


15

PROJECT OF SUFI GROUP OF INDUSTRIES

Here, youre targeting new markets, or new areas of the


market. Youre trying to sell more of the same things to different people.
Here you might:
Target different geographical markets at home or abroad
Use different sales channels, such as online or direct sales if you are
currently selling through the trade
Target different groups of people, perhaps different age groups,
genders or demographic profiles from your normal customers.
For market development Sufi has put a lot of efforts to expand itself
in Pakistan as they started from Lahore and today they are everywhere
in Pakistan even in all big cities and small towns , villages. They had
developed their market all over the Pakistan very well. Time to time they
target different group of people for example, they started from lower
class and than they target middle class and lower class and now their
target market is all categories they are targeting lower class, middle
class, as well as higher class customers.

Product Development (existing markets, new products):


Here, youre selling more things to the same people. Here you might:
Extend your product by producing different variants, or packaging
existing products it in new ways
Develop related products or services (for example, a domestic
plumbing company might add a tiling service after all, if theyre
plumbing in a new kitchen, most likely tiling will be needed!)
In a service industry, increase your time to market, customer service
levels, or quality

16

PROJECT OF SUFI GROUP OF INDUSTRIES

So, if we conclude product development in the existing market new


products are introduced in the same target market following are the
modifications made by Sufi group of industries which is product
development strategy used by Sufi.

Sufis modifications
1.

Cooking oils
soya bean cooking oil
sunflower cooking oil
canola cooking oil
banaspati ghee

2. Soaps
Toilet soap
Bath soap
Sufi soap vermicelli
Sufi soap special quality

Business Diversification (new markets, new products):


This strategy is risky, theres often little scope for using existing
expertise or achieving economies of scale, because you are trying to sell
completely different products or services to different customers
This is where we market completely new products to new customers.
There are two types of diversification, namely direct and indirect
diversification.
1. Direct diversification of Sufi
Cooking oils to banaspati ghee
Dishwashing bar to liquid
Sufi soap special quality to vermicelli, bath & toilet soap
2. Indirect diversification of Sufi
