The economies of the world are undergoing a rapid change, with often wrenching transformation. The two major forces underlying this change are Globalization with Technological changes. The explosive increase in global trade and international competition has led to Globalization. Also technological changes have taken place with the passage of time. This decade has witnessed remarkable advances in the availability of information and spread of communication. The markets of today are changing at an incredible pace. Along with technological changes and Globalization, we are also witnessing a power shift from manufacturing to retailing, new retail forms, growing consumer price and value sensitivity, diminishing role of man marketing. To protect their profits, companies have primarily responded by cutting their costs, re-engineering their processes and downsizing their work forces. Yet even if companies succeed in cutting their costs, they may fail to increase their revenue if they may fail to increase their revenue if they lack marketing vision with marketing know-how. It is therefore necessary for companies to formulate broad strategy and define a specific marketing mix and action plan


to optimize their long run profitability. The company can build in a set of controls so that it can evaluate results and operate as learning organization thereby constantly

improving its marketing know-how. If we meet today's tougher Indian consumers they are more demanding, inquisitive, discriminating. They are no longer content with planned obsolescence .They are no longer willing to tolerate products that break down. They insist on high quality goods they have, time, energy and calories, preserve the environment that come from a manufacturer. This means that companies have to work harder to gain and keep the confidence of Indian consumers, especially those who have been switching brands. For firms that have responded well to this challenge, an important milestone has been reached, they are truly consumer -oriented companies practicing the marketing concept .These firms talk to consumers to discover their needs and work hard to satisfy them; and they do this in a systematic, goal oriented manner. Firms operating internationally need to be aware that consumer’s desires and expectations can differ by country. Many times, these expectations are quite dissimilar from Indian Consumers. For example German's are the world's



toughest customers for athletic footwear. They routinely review product specifications and expect retail sales persons to show them that footwear will perform as advertised. Italians Spaniards value high efficiency laundry detergents and are able to discuss minor performance destinations among brands. In contrast American's are more interested in the fashionableness of athletic footwear, and are less fastidious about laundry. Marketing has been a neglected area in India for a number of years due to the existence of protective controls and the prevalence of a seller's market in most products. However, the recent recessionary trends in our economy as well as the increase in educational levels and sophistication of customers has resulted in many of our businessmen finding themselves in a buyer's market unprepared and indulging in heavy and often ineffective advertising. This way an acceptance of the marketing importance is clearly emerging on the Indian horizon at present. Marketing is not a fixed system of concepts. Rather marketing is one of the most dynamic fields within the management arena.



The market place continuously throws out fresh challenges and companies must respond. Therefore, it is not surprising that new marketing ideas keep surfacing to meet the new market place challenges. In the highly competitive world, only those organizations would survive, who respond positively to the fast changing environment. This is more important for Public sector undertaking which until now were working under the protective cover of the state. The survival of such undertakings including the cooperative sector is at state. Unless these improve productivity, efficiency and introduce professionalism in every aspect of business, the long term survival is not possible. Thus, the importance of marketing strategies cannot be ignored. Strategies are the means of achieving the ends. Based on objectives and when applied to business, they govern the firm’s behavior in respect of acquisition, allocation and effective utilization of resources necessary to achieve the predetermined objectives within the given environmental constraints. In fact, they provide an overall direction for the functioning of an enterprise as well as the accomplishment of the enterprise goals strategy can be devised for a nation, industry or for a firm. It may be


formulated in different areas of business activities such as marketing, finance, personnel, public relations and

production. However, the formulation of strategy for marketing is one of the most complex, dynamic and challenging functions in any business enterprise. Marketing strategy is complex and dynamic both in terms of inputs and outputs. It is vital from the point of view of setting budgets, projecting cash flows and even deciding what products to make or when to buy. Marketing strategy plays a crucial role by enabling the company to meet its general objectives that is, to ensure survival at a 'Profit' and success in relation to its competitors, market share, market growth etc. To accomplish these objectives, a sound marketing strategy usually outlines a number of tactics. These may include the lowest cost, control over distribution, product differentiation, effective promotion strategy etc. Thus marketing strategy provides the direction not only for marketing departments but for the overall growth of the firm. Marketing strategy in contrast to marketing planning is concerned with long term development, implementation of policy, long range plans for achieving the organizational goals, efforts to meet these challenges and threats and also for securing business survival and success.


It implies that marketing strategy is concerned more with the improvement of existing products, development of new products, new methods of production, exploration of new markets etc. than with the cut and thrust of day to day operations that is the current production and sales.


Marketing strategy is the prime mechanism to achieve sustained growth and prosperity of the nation. It is the power house for industrial growth. Like other industries, marketing strategy has been found to be an important tool for expanding sales of the Writing instrument Industry as well. Though with the increased competition in the market and development of a variety of pens, the pen manufacturers have started placing greater reliance on marketing strategy to create a distinct and unique position of their product and their corporate positioning in the market.



Tremendous progress has taken place in the Pen industry in India since Independence. A number of large, medium, small as well as cottage units scattered all over the country have started manufacturing a wide range of pens. Major changes have also taken place in the structure and demand pattern of urban as well as rural markets. The pen industry has been facing growing competition in the international market as well which is becoming increasing important. Such developments have inevitably increased the complexities in marketing of pens in India. Therefore, it has become imperative to involve effective marketing strategies to cope up with the increasing competition in the market to gain a larger market share through the delivery of more satisfaction to consumers. The Pen Industry offers ample employment opportunities to millions of people in the peripheral sectors such as distribution, field services, etc. The present production of pens in India has created job opportunities for more than one lakh people in the service sector of which most of these people are self employed.



Presently every country - developed or undeveloped or even developing is moving ahead to achieve economic prosperity as well as a higher standard of living of the proper dwelling in it. Economic prosperity and higher living standard can only be achieved through a rapid increase in production of both goods and services produced within the country. India too has made a considerable amount of economic progress during the last three decades. Now it’s been more than 5 decades after we have achieved our much longed independence, and not only has the volume of production increased tremendously in various sectors like

pharmaceuticals, automobiles, FMCG, Telecommunication etc. but also new products which were formerly imported are also being manufactured within our very own country India. However, a country's economic prosperity depends not only on the volume of production, but also on the systematic, efficient and equitable distribution of all that has been produced in the country. Thus, equal distribution of the production is also very important from the point of view of economic prosperity.



The National Marketing in India is very vast with it covers a large canvas of more than 1100 million people, about 6,38,691 Villages, 561 Towns, around 593 Districts and 28 States, 7 Union Territories, with a varied geography of deserts, plains, hills, mountains, plantations etc. having a multiplicity of languages and varied business practices too. So scientifically, the system of equitable distribution of commodities would rather be impossible for any enterprise. It would be very difficult for the enterprise to cater to the needs of their very varied clientele and due to all the above situations .The enterprises are likely to restrict their operations and confirm it to limited geographic territories unless there are excellent and cheap facilities for

transportation that are feasible and adequate. Then a wide range of intermediaries especially retail institutions like fair price shop, super bazaars, departmental stores, etc. can be brought into the picture to reach the final products into the customer’s hands. Due to all this, only the distribution system is becoming more and more important. Now the essentiality of the physical distribution system cannot be ignored. Thus, this distribution system needs special attention under economic planning. In knowledge acquired by us under the present distributive mechanism, the composition of the


system, its structure and the way the various links in the system are related is at present are inadequate. Due to these particular reasons, it is difficult to visualize clearly the various administrative problems that are involved in the physical distribution system present in India. Now the marketing process is application to more than just goods and services. Anything can be marketed including idea, events, organizations, places and personalities. It is also important now that marketing does not start with a product or offering, but with a search for opportunities in the market place. The study could not be treated with more statistical analysis and our inability to do so has been due to 2 main hurdles. First, we had to face a great apathy and reluctance on the part of manufactures and traders in the disclosing of information. They did not give us proper and relevant details of marketing costs, trade margins as well as volume of sales. Second, the blue print of the Govt. proved helpless in giving any factual information on the composition and structure of marketing organizations in this context. So, we can see that although the Govt. gave the blue prints, yet they were not proper enough to know the marketing organizations structure without any proper and relevant information the results of the study just fell through.


The main objective of the study was:

To Identify the distributive functionaries that operate between producers and consumers.
At that time there were very many intermediaries between the producers of the goods and the ultimate consumers. These intermediaries or middlemen received up to 60% of the price paid to the producers. All these mal-practices had to be curbed. Thus it was necessary to identify the distributive functionaries between producers and consumers.

To Estimate the Marketing Cost spread.
Marketing costs includes all types of costs like advertising, selling and distribution, packaging, transportation,

warehousing, storage etc. All these components form an essential feature of the cost of marketing. The detailed study of all these costs had to be known to come to a certain concrete conclusion. Thus, this second study's main objective was to determine and estimate each of the marketing costs involved and the degree of each of their contributions.



To suggest a least cost distributive system without imparting the efficiency of distribution
In order to make maximum profits, least cost has to be made in any activity. Thus, the lowest cost structure of all these marketing costs had to be evaluated and suggested. But, it also had to be kept in mind that quality did not have to be compromised with. And the efficiency of the

system had to be perfect, so the suggestions of a least cost distributive system was another important objective of this study.

To recommend a fair margin to the trade after examining the present margin and operation expense
One of the essential objectives of the study was the recommendation of a just and fair rate of profit. All the expenses on the operational activities like factory expenses, wages, distributive expenses, advertising etc. had to be studied and tried to be curtailed. The present profit rate had to be studied and reasons for the same had to be understood.


Only then could proper measures could be taken to increase profits and control operational expenses.

In this study a questionnaire was prepared and circulated to 150 retailers in Delhi to obtain information on the distributive system followed by them. We have high hopes of a large number of people participating, but only 120 retailers responded. The bad part was that wholesalers and even retailers did not take much interest. They responded very poorly. It is also observed that the feedback mechanisms are also relatively poor. Since a majority of retailers were found to have a very little idea about the change in consumer tastes and preferences, they were all living in the last century. The study further stated that in the present system, a majority of retailers had little or no control over the products they sold. As regards the margins of intermediaries, the margins of wholesalers differed from variety to variety and the gross margins were generally high in metropolitan markets. It was also observed that the net profits as a percentage of capital employed in case of wholesalers was 15% to 20% .Whereas in the case of retailers, it was 3% to 4%.



Further, the distribution of products through co-operative stores such as super-bazaars, big -bazaars, etc. was found to be of a very little significance. It was stated in the study that if the cooperative institutions were to become effective instruments of distribution and a vehicle of price

stabilization, their activities should be strengthened and extended with additional credit and managerial resources granted to them.

• The study shall enhance the 7 P’s of Marketing mix i.e. Product, Price, Place, Promotion, People, packaging, Perception adopted by all these brands of pens along with the Luxor writing instruments and where does Luxur as a brand of pens stand in the current market scenario .This would enable a marketer to craft a marketing plan and adjust it in such a way that it would lead to in identifying the problems pertaining in the market with regards to Luxor pens and how can the



company can pose competition in the lower range category as well. • The study shall indeed be helpful for the company to identify the potential of Industrial or B2B marketing that account for the long term contractual agreements that are typical in supply chain transactions. Analyzing the Market segmentation that involves dividing up the potential market for the pens between Rs 3- Rs 15 into groups of people who have similar needs, and then addressing these needs in a focused way. This would help company to craft a marketing plan and modify it in such a way that it would help in1. Defining the Problem. 2. Identifying the market. 3. Market Share. Thus keeping in view the importance and relevance of this Pen industry, the research has been under taken to understand this fast developing industry. The objectives of this particular study are• To determine consumer preferences in respect of pen brands.



• To know the various reasons for which customers purchase pen. • To know the market share of various pen producing companies. • To understand the buying behavior of the consumers. • Examine the existing organizational arrangement for the distribution of products. Most importantly to throw light on the hierarchical relationship that would be reflecting the importance of this function in the overall marketing organization. • To analyze the effect of display on customer purchasing. • To understand relatives influence on customers in the purchasing process. • To analyze the margin of profits in various pens.



• To determine Brand Loyalty and gainer / loser brands associated with Brand switching. • To check proper rotation of stock. • To determine the main reason for 'Preferred' Brand. • To determine comparative consumer brand preference rating among 2 different types of pens. • To determine comparative consumer perception of consumer for pens between Rs.3-Rs15 with reference to Luxor writing instruments • To know the schemes available and what improvements should be done regarding the availability of these schemes.

Research Methodology is to teach and to save knowledge from fossilization, such a step helps not only in the growth of the subject but also in facilitating solutions of burning problems. As an independent discipline, it helps solution of immediate problems of business also .It is however, necessary to evolve and shape methodical tools, designs and techniques to improve quality. If marketing strategies are good and effective; it will help to sell the product in an effective manner to reach every part of the country, specifically in rural and hilly areas, where distribution is always a problem. To form and test alternative and null hypothesis, we have studied market research and its effect on marketing strategy, long term and short term. Traditionally, hypothesis does not hold well in present economic drive. In order to test the hypothesis, the relevant data I have selected from both Primary and Secondary sources. (1) Primary Data Personal Interview Questionnaire. (2)

Secondary Data


For primary data basis, I have collected information upon sample basis, interview and personal survey by visiting various shops. For collection of these data I have prepared a questionnaire which is up to date in my knowledge. The questionnaire has been filled up by various customers, dealers and also retailers. The study was carried out at various retail outlets and consumers. The survey includes both observational study and direct semi-structure interviews.

There is a wide scope of this study. This study will help in identifying the specific problems of marketing in the writing instrument industry. A multidimensional approach is proposed to put into application to analyze the respective problems. The study aims at making an effort to evolve a suggestive model with all the facts and marketing strategies.



The present research study is descriptive cum analytical type of study. The major purpose of this research is to find description of the state of affairs as it exists at present in the content of pen marketing in India. The facts and information’s already available have also been used. A brief over view on the research process of the present study is as follows: (1) Research Problem The present research problem in the context of the marketing strategies of the pen industry was

formulated. An understanding about the problem could be developed with the discussion held with experts of the subject, colleagues, and officials associated with the pen industry. I was acquainted with the problem through the review of conceptual and empirical literature available on the subject. (2) Hypothesis Proper marketing strategies of the pen Industry will help all the pen companies. In this pen industry flourishes,







opportunities in our country. It is one of the fast developing industries and also the indicator of the standard of living of a nation. Good marketing strategies would help develop the pen Industry and the Indian Economy as a whole. (3) Research Design After formulating the research problem and hypothesis, the research design was involved. This design had to suit the requirements of the present study, had to explore and also describe and diagnose the problems of the study.


Research Instrument For the collection of information a questionnaire was designed which was structured and none disguised type and was administered as per schedule. It included many close ended as well as few open ended questions.


Sample Design The study was carried out in DELHI. It has covered about 100 retailers and wholesalers and consumers each .Out of these Central Delhi was studied more closely.




Sampling Procedure The sampling procedure used was random, keeping in mind proper representations in all areas.


Collection of Data For the study, both primary as well as secondary data was collected. Primary data was collected by the Questionnaire and personal Interview method.

Secondary data was collected through published materials, Newspapers, Journals, Proceeding, Books, and Websites etc. (8) Analysis of Data The data collected have been codified and tabulated. Relevant statistical relationships have been established and analyzed. The analysis of data helped in understanding the marketing strategies. Besides this, various problems, which came in the way of marketing, have been identified. The analysis of data has been presented in the respective chapters of this thesis. The data has been interpreted to arrive at some concrete conclusions. The problems identified in regard to marketing strategies and suggestions to overcome the problems, have also been evolved on the basis of


interpretation of data, various statistical methods, formulations and techniques have been applied for interpretation of data. Finally an attempt was made to give a shape to the study in the form of a report.

The analytical study emphasizes the marketing aspect of pens. Data released by the pen industry on production and consumption etc. of pens is not very reliable because of inhabitant characteristics of maintaining secrecy by the industry so that they may not be exposed to the Government and General Public. Applications of sophisticated methods are not possible because of the lack of resources and the limitations of time. Since, the conclusions drawn are based on limited data; they remain subject to modifications and corrections.






How the pen market changed

Fountain Pen:

Lewis Waterman patented the first practical fountain pen in 1884. Writing instruments designed to carry their own supply of ink had existed in principle for over one hundred years before Waterman's patent. For example, the oldest known fountain pen that has survived today was designed by a Frenchmen named M. Bion and dated 1702.

However, early fountain pen models were plagued by ink spills and other failures that left them impractical and hard to sell. The fountain pen's design came after a thousand years of using quill-pens. Early inventors observed the apparent natural ink reserve found in the hollow channel of a bird's feather and tried to produce a similar effect, with a man-made pen that would hold more ink and not require constant dipping into the ink well. However, a feather is not a pen, only a natural object modified to suit man's needs. Lewis Waterman's idea was to add an air hole in the nib and three grooves inside the feed mechanism.


A mechanism is composed of three main parts. The nib, which has the contact with the paper, the feed or black part under the nib controls the ink flow from the reservoir to the nib.

The round barrel that holds the nib and feed on the writing end protects the ink reservoir internally (this is the part that you grip while writing).All pens contain an internal reservoir for ink. The different ways that reservoirs filled proved to be one of the most competitive areas in the pen industry in early19th century .There are nine standard nib-sizes, with three different nib-tip cuts: straight, oblique and italic.



Ballpoint Pen:

A Hungarian journalist named Laszlo Biro invented the first ballpoint pen in 1938.Biro had noticed that the type of ink used in newspaper printing dried quickly, leaving the paper dry and smudge-free. He decided to create a pen using the same type of ink. The thicker ink would not flow from a regular pen nib and Biro had to devise a new type of point. He did so by fitting his pen with a tiny ball bearing in its tip.

As the pen moved along the paper, the ball rotated picking up ink from the ink cartridge and leaving it on the paper. The British Royal Air Force needed a new type of pen, one that would not leak at higher altitudes in fighter planes as the



fountain pen did. Their successful performance for the Air Force brought the Biro pens into the limelight.

The highly popular modern version of Laszlo Biro's pen, the BIC Crystal, has a daily worldwide sales figure of 14,000,000 pieces. Biro is still the generic name used for the ballpoint pen in most of the world. The Biro pens used by the British Air Force in W.W.II worked. Parker black ballpoint pens will produce more than 28,000 linear feet of writing -more than five miles, before running out of ink. This is the change in the use of the Fountain pen to Ballpoint pen further we got introduced with Gel pens but still the market of the ballpoint pens hold good.

Gel Pen:

Gel Pens were invented by the Sakura Color Products Corp. (Osaka, Japan), who makes Gel Roll pens and was the company that invented gel ink in 1984.



Ball pens forms the biggest chunk of the pen market in India and accounts for 72percent of the total pen market followed by gel pen at 28 percent. The brand leaders in this market are Cello. Luxor Writing Instruments Pvt Ltd has introduced Watermann Exception Solid Gold Pen worth Rs 10 lakh at the inaugural ceremony of the company’s exclusive retail showroom Luxor Signature. Comment from ACNielsen (world's leading marketing information provider) “Pen market previously suffered from lack of organized information on the market size or market shares of various players, since most players are not listed companies and distribution was mostly limited to stationery stores,”

Pens market in India recorded a value growth of 82% Survey done by the India’s leading market information providing company ‘AC Nielson’ on pen market in year 2006. They come to know that ballpoint pen is still a market leader by acquiring a large portion of the market. There is a ratio of 72% to 28 % for ballpoint to gel respectively. In



urban areas about 10.9 lac. of stores are selling pen, in the selling year of 2005-06 itself recorded a growth of 23%.

The Pen market across the world is Rs 50,000 crore and in India market is only Rs 1500 crores and growing at the rate of 9 per cent. 60% sales come through organized sector and balance from unorganized. And the luxury segment 95% sales come through grey market. Most of the luxury writing instruments are picked by on travel abroad. Off this nearly 99% is sale through stationery and kirana stores. The entire market is disorganized. And the grey market plays a very crucial role in supplying hi-end, premium writing

instruments. The industry is just evolving and consolidating to supply genuine and quality pens to Indian customers. In terms of quality of pens, India ranks amongst the best in the world, well ahead of even China. But, its export market is abysmally low at Rs 200 crore, while China exports Rs 5,000 crore worth pens every year .Indian manufacturers are only now beginning to focus on global markets. The luxury and hi end pen market is only 1 per cent of the total market size of India i.e. 15 crore. The gold and the sterling silver range branded Waterman 100 retail between Rs 2, 00, 00 to Rs 4, 00,000.



Indian pen manufacturers see this segment as a potential one in the coming years. Many have set up a separate division to handle this market segment, as the `free gift-on-everypurchase' campaign uncorked by FMCG companies is acquiring a shrill note. Mr. Ronnie Netto (Director of Today's Writing Products Ltd (TWPL) said – "We noticed this trend about two years ago and it has picked up since then. Last fiscal, our revenue from this segment was over Rs 10 crore of our total turnover of Rs 80 crore. And this fiscal ,we expect it to almost touch the Rs 20-crore mark .We have set up an exclusive division to handle such orders, as they require personalized service. We estimate this market segment to grow to Rs 500 crore in the coming years, now; Indian manufacturers are beginning to reach out to the overseas market. After UK's Pound land tied up with TWPL to have Today's brand of pens in its chain of stores, we expect to export pens worth $1 million to UK in the current fiscal,"



Another area that is opening up for Indian pen manufacturers is the trend among overseas stationary companies to outsource their pen requirements from India. In 2006, about 10.9 lac stores across urban India take the product in stock at present which represents a distribution growth of 23 percent within a year (April06 over July’05). The increased distribution has brought about a phenomenal growth for the pen market of 82 percent in sales.

The sales peaked in the months of February and March owing to exam season and touched maximum in the last eleven months .There is a consistent month-on-month growth in the writing instruments industry fuelled by competitive pricing and product innovation. Today, one can buy a Gel pen for rupees two and can choose from a wide variety of pens - with easy grip to water-proof ink .Although the writing instrument market is led by well known names like Cello ,GM (Reynolds), Jineshwar (Montex) etc. Smaller players such as Lexi, Agni and Elkos for examples have also been able to maintain their share on a regional or select pocket level.



HISTORY Founded in 1963 by Mr. D.K. Jain , the Luxor Group has emerged as the undisputed market leader in the writing instruments industry – both in India and abroad. During the journey spanning nearly five decades, the Group has relentlessly pursued an upward growth path and our longterm goal of building a globally acclaimed, well-diversified conglomerate is turning into a reality.



Stepping Stones to Success

What started as a small venture in the crowded lanes of Old Delhi, has evolved into India’s No. 1 manufacturer and exporter of writing instruments – operating 10 state-of-the-art facilities in NCR-Delhi and Mumbai and producing more than one million pens a day. Today, Luxor products enjoy unrivalled patronage not only in India but in more than 75 countries across the world. In a survey conducted in 2004, Luxor has been declared an Indian Super brand, the only company in the writing instrument industry to be bestowed this honor. In the five decades since its inception, the Luxor Group has been continuously raising the bar in technological competence and gaining recognition as a leader and innovator. Under Mr. D.K Jain’s able guidance, the company started producing home-grown Indian pens using backward

integration and leveraging the most advanced technologies. The Group currently manufactures a wide array of writing


instruments, stationery and accessories – catering to an extensive range of consumers with diverse preferences. The Luxor brand is a registered trademark in more than 120 countries and belongs to an exclusive club of top 101 brands hailing from various industry segments in India. The Luxor Group pioneered fiber-tip and roller ball pens in India way back in 1975 – creative innovations which instantly caught users’ fancy for their superior performance, great convenience and distinct style. In 1982, the company joined hands with Pilot Corporation of Japan and brought the Pilot ‘hi-tec’ needle point pens to India. Another major breakthrough came in 1986 as Luxor introduced permanent markers, dry safe ink markers and fluorescent highlighters to address the diverse requirements of its global clientele. The company offers a dazzling array of products to meet the sketching, drawing and coloring needs of junior citizens.

Bringing in the Brand Edge The 90s were significant in more ways than one as the Luxor Group continued to thrive even in the face of fierce competition from large multinationals and leading



international brands. In a bid to ensure incremental growth, the Group chose to re-invent itself and opted for a threepronged strategy including modernization, exports expansion and tie-ups with coveted international brands. In 1980, an exclusive international business division (Luxor

International) was set up to promote and sell the Luxor Brand far beyond Indian boundaries while the Group decided to bring under its umbrella some of the most famous foreign makes to serve a vast and quality-conscious Indian consumer base. Keeping in mind the resounding success of the LuxorPilot tie-up, the Group decided to follow the same strategic approach with Brand Parker in 1996. Paper Mate (1999) and Waterman (2003) followed suit and the Luxor Group now acts as their preferred business partner in India, holding the manufacturing and marketing franchise. Positioned as premium lifestyle accessories instead of everyday utility item, the Parker and Waterman from the House of Luxor remain the preferred choice of the upwardly mobile. Celebrity endorsements were also sought to promote these high-end writing jewels, and legendary movie star, Amitabh Bachchan, was signed up as the Parker brand ambassador. Never an organization to rest on its laurels, the organization has further conceptualized the Louis Charron range in 2006 –


an exclusive collection of designer pens coveted by the discerning. Luxor also plans to unleash a range of accessories, such as key chains Diversification Drive taking forward its unbeatable saga of excellence and total customer commitment, the Luxor Group today is diversifying into various fields. From Hospitality and Real Estate to Retail, the ventures are many and the new initiatives are working out well to propel the Group to greater heights.

What Sets Luxor Apart

Over the years, the Luxor Group has been bestowed numerous Awards and Certifications for Quality, innovation and product design. The Group lays great emphasis on Research and Development to bring the best writing solutions to its vast customer base while leveraging cutting-edge technologies and best industry practices to enhance product


quality and performance. Luxor’s unfailing commitment to Quality has been further endorsed by a series of ISO certifications which ensure flawless compliance with international standards.

General analysis LWIPL launched its first brand of pens in 1963-The Artistic Fountain Pen. However, owing to its small scale of operations during that time, pens were made available in just Delhi and the surrounding areas. Although, the range of pens under Luxor, in the lower price category is way too less still as compared to the competitors that have captured a major chunk of the current market .Cello occupies the topmost position followed by Linc pens in this lower price pen category. During late 1960’s, Artist brand was renamed as Luxor. In 1982, LWIPL launched Pilot 05 micro tip pens with needle point technology priced at Rs.10. This was the first model of pilot pens officially launched in India. The maximum sale of lower priced pens was made by the retailers by selling a huge 60% of the total to mere students only. The second largest sales were made to the servicemen with 25% and then the businessmen with 10% respectively.



According to the research done by us, the maximum sales of pens under the price range of Rs3-Rs.15 was acquired by Cello i.e.60% followed by Linc, Reynolds with 5% and

Luxor pens only 2%under the lower price category. Also maximum schemes to the retailers were given by the pioneer again being Cello. According to the survey done with the retailers, they believed that a majority of customers look for the quality of pen and then the price. Then after that, they see whether it is refillable or not. The looks of the pens in this price range are usually least preferred. The sale of these pens was found to be stable throughout the year with 90% and the best deal of the pens that the retailers felt was with Cello again with 45%, Linc 25%, Reynolds 15%, Rotomac 10% and the least being Luxor 5%. As far as the promotion is concerned, when asked by the retailers; 80% of them said that the celebrity adds do not help in increasing the sales volumes as there are hardly any advertisements of Luxor pens under lower price category.



On the other hand, if we consider the consumer view point, they too gave preference to Cello with 39%, Linc 26%, Rotomac 10%, Reynolds 7% and the least Luxor that was only 2%. 50% of the customers bought these pens once in 15 days whereas 25% once in a week. 15% begged borrowed or stole and the remaining 15% went for a bulk purchase. A majority of 70% of the customers were not conscious of their status while buying the pens ranged between Rs.3-Rs.15.The questions whether the advertisement helps in enhancing the sale of these pens proved to be almost futile as there are hardly any advertisements and only 15% people said that they came to know about the pens from the advertisement. Rest 39% came to know from the retailers and 275 from friends.

Promotion and Positioning
LWIPL promoted its products primarily through ad advertising in the print and television media. The company hired several advertising agencies in the past two decades. The first advertising agency hired by LWIPL in the 1980s was 'Creative Works', to promote its Pilot pens.

In the early 1990s, the company shifted to another agency, RK Swamy/BBDO. In 1996, the advertising account of



Parker was awarded to McCann-Erickson, while the Luxor and Pilot brands remained with RK Swamy/BBDO. Suggestions Most of the retailers were unsatisfied with the pending schemes that luxor has been providing to them. They suggested that no schemes should be left pending. Another aspect which they highlighted was that the company did not work at all towards the promotion. Neither did they provided banners or stands for that matter for display on the shops due to which the attention and focus of the customers could not be tapped. Most of them suggested that there should be introduction of new product lines under this range with sufficient availability at the same time so that Luxor can get into the rat race under the given price category.



The production of pens in India has been steadily growing since the beginning of the twentieth century. It is still expected to register a sharper rise in the next decade. The Industry is widely dispersed comprising of large size units and small sized units. The pen industry is basically a labor intensive having vast employment potential. Due to this there is a greater need for a well knit distribution system to help the industry to grow and meet the needs of millions and millions of Indians who are striving to achieve a higher standard of living.
