According to the census, in the urban areas the share of house hold establishments in furniture products manufacturing was about 8% of the total household manufacturing industries. Area wise analysis also depicts the similar trends. The demand for furniture products is increasing in the domestic market as well as in the international market due to its traditional appeal and durability and also because the introduction of new materials in furniture manufacturing. Furniture Showroom is a viable profitable business if done properly on Commercial basis. Demand for household and office furniture is growing considerably as socio-economic development is taking place. With the rapid increase in the development of new housing schemes, the increased demand of furniture is also anticipated. According to the National Housing Policy 2001, the house construction was to be raised by 500,000 houses per annum. Furthermore, introduction of new schemes by different banks for house and consumer financing have also raised the purchasing power of general public. Furniture, which is given as dowry, forms the major portion of sales of furniture in Pakistan.

IMPORTED FURNITURE

U Wish

Furniture imported in Pakistan is normally of Italy, China & Spain. As this proposed showroom business is targeted towards high class and middle class, it is necessary to offer imported furniture. Due to its high attraction among targeted market, it can generate significant revenue for the business. Made in China - which had already hurt the local plastic industry and has made inroads in toys, electronic items and other products is all set to dominate the local furniture market. It is now feared that most of the people who had small businesses of producing furniture have now become importers of Chinese furniture. Those in the furniture business revealed that some 200 out of 500 factories in different localities of Karachi including Liaqatabad, Landhi, Shershah and Gharibabad that were busy in manufacturing small items of furniture like office chairs, TV trolleys and other items have been completely shut down and that the owners of these factories have become the importers of Chinese products. The raw material used in making office chairs, TV trolleys and other small items are available at a higher price in the local market and Chinese readymade products are comparatively less expensive so most of the manufacturers have decided to shut down their business and started to import the same item from China. The foreign sources of furniture in Pakistan are China, Germany and Italy; however, they have not yet succeeded in grabbing local markets share of the heavy furniture. The quality of local heavy furniture is higher and lesser in price, which includes complete bed set which is much better than the Chinese one because in the customs, freight charges are being charged according to the weight and volume of the item, and a Chinese bedroom set costs around Rs 800,000/- when it reaches Karachi. However for the items which fall in the light furniture category China has dominated the market and has hurt the local industry to around 80 per cent. An attempt on deco furniture and by using MDF chip board and fiber glass approach, the domestic suppliers have been able to attract the consumers again to the local markets as By using this approach the manufacturers have created decent designs and carvings on the bedroom sets and an excellent indigenous bedroom set is now available in Rs175, 000. The Alliance of Market Associations Karachi has assured the government if it caps the increasing prices of raw material and announces incentives to the manufacturers, the local Small furniture industry would be reactivated and hundreds of sidelined persons could be re-employed.

CUSTOMER ANALYSIS:

As

U Wish

We are focusing on the customers of furniture which are not completely satisfied with the existing products of furniture. And the reason of their dissatisfaction is the less reliability of existing furniture products. Customer profile is developing data about the customer and gathering and analyzing all information about target market i.e. who are our customers? Where do they live? What are their unmet needs? Etc. And in customer profile we analyzed customer behavior on the basis of the answers of these questions. The customers of Creative Furniture are high and middle income group and they reside in Gujranwala and they cover about 20-25% of total population of Gujranwala. . Customers are looking for Customized Products which can be changed according to the trends. We will provide novel assembling and better maintenance with high reliability for the real satisfaction of customers Our customer will be communicated through electronic media (Cable network) and outdoor media (Bill Boards). As high and middle income group are looking for reliability and reassembling features in their furniture and they are ready to pay more than, they used to pay in the past for furniture, which can give them satisfaction and strength. So the prices of our furniture products they will happily pay what we will charge for that. PROBLEM: The problems with existing furnitures products are: Difficult to assemble. Lack of Attractive styles which will be changeable according to the desire of customers. Wastage of whole product if any part damages. More time for manufacturing is required. Low reliability because of SYONG in wood furniture. Heavy weight of wood furniture. High rates.

MARKET SEGMENTATION:
Market segmentation looks at the nature and the extent of diversity of buyers needs and wants in the market. It offers an opportunity for a business to focus its business capabilities on the requirement of one or more group of buyers. The objective of segmentation is to examine differences in needs and wants and identifying the segments within the 17

product market of interest. Each segment contains buyers with similar needs and wants for the product category of interest to management. We divided our buyers into two segments on the basis of their income level because behind the furniture buying interest there is income which affects the buying behavior of furniture. For this purpose we visited the furniture showrooms and interviewed the owners of showrooms of furniture as well as the customers and then segmented our market. Following table shows the segments of the furniture showrooms;

MARKET SEGMENTS
High Income group Middle/High class

INCOME

LEVEL

50000---above 30000---50000

EFFECTIVE SEGMENTATION
The segmentation for our business is better & useful because it is; 1. Measurable: We have divided furniture buyer on the basis of there income & access them for their purchasing power. So all these segments are measurable as their income levels are specified. 2. Substantial: This segments is large enough & profitable & enough to serve the furniture customers.

The purpose of market targeting is to select the people that firm wishes to serve in the market. The objective is to find the best match between the value requirements of each segment and the firms distinctive capabilities. This proposed project is concerned with the domestic market of Pakistan.

above. The demand in these areas is influenced by the number of new houses/offices built and old houses/offices renovated/reconstructed. The renovation and redecoration of Households are a routine process in these areas. According to furniture market segmentation we will target segments of upper and middle class having income range 30,000---above. We will target this segment on the bases of our capabilities as the strength of our firm will be the differentiation in designs of our product and segments we targeted usually want to have something different and unique form like reassembling with only some more amount, for the sake of their new trends and current styles according to their own choice.

OPERATION PLAN:
PURCHASE PLAN
The process of furniture manufacturing starts from obtaining raw material of iron and steel from supplier. Then it is shaped according to the designs. When this step completed then normally manual work started. Then it is polished and at the end assembled. Creative Furniture will order for its customized products to a local manufacturer and will pay some amount in advance so that things should be ready according to the orders and there will be no chance of delay in order of the customers. At first the customer will select a design of furniture item and then customer will order. If the furniture item which customer selects, is in the stock then we will deliver that item to the customer and will receive payment. On the other hand, if customer selects an item which is not in the stock then with an order we will receive advance payment from customer.

Payment Schedule:
If customer selects an item which is not in the stock then with an order we will receive advance payment from customer. Then we will forward that order with design specification to our supplier for manufacturing that item and also will pay advance to supplier. At the specified date we will receive the ordered furniture item from supplier and deliver it to the customer and settle the payment with customer and supplier. These steps will fulfill the order.
