1.3Current business Trend

At present there are lots of Spice & Mustered Oil companies in the market, like Arku, Pure, Radhuni Pran, BD food and many others. They are producing and distributing different kinds of Spice & Mustered Oil and they are taking different marketing strategies to capture the market. Sometimes they are following the quality, sometimes they are following to keep the price low, and sometimes they are following high promotional activities to promote their product. Actually there is no fixed marketing strategy of the present Spice & Mustered Oil companies. Because the environment is changing and people are also changing in their mind, in their behavior, in their attitude, in their perception. So the present Spice & Mustered Oil companies are taking their marketing strategies based upon the situation. Among the lots of Spice & Mustered Oil companies, some companies are well established in the market and they are doing their business very well. On the other hand some companies are not well established in the market. At present there is also lots of competition among the Spice & Mustered Oil companies and continuously they are trying to set up the new strategy to capture the market. Actually the present soft market is very competitive. Although it is a very competitive market for the soft company but a new company like Aftab Energy coming up with a innovative product by offering the better customers So it can compete with the competitor in the Spice & Mustered Oil market by its own marketing strategy.

Basically, the Consumer Goods market like Spice & Mustered Oil in Bangladesh is competitive in nature. From a statistical survey we get, in  Spice & Mustered oil Company like Radhuni, Arku, Pure, BD Foods, Pran etc hold 65% market share another 35% are market gap in urban area & in rural area the above company hold 14% & another 86% use home made spice.

1.4 Target Market

Target market is very important for the every company. Because once a firm has analyzed its environment and all others business related things, it has to evaluate the various segments and decide how many or which ones to target. That is why every company has target market. The target market of the all most every existing Spice & Mustered Oil Company in the market is all over the country, even the rural area. But most of them focus mainly on big cities. Every company does not follow the same strategy to target their market. Different companies follow different strategy to target their market.

Every company has some uniqueness to target their market. Some companies focus on location to target their market. They focus on the suitable area and the standard of living of that area’s people. Some companies focus on the density of the population to target their market. They think that more people mean more products will be sold. Some companies target their market according to the market demand. They target some are in which the demand of Spice & Mustered Oil are very high. But one thing is very similar that almost all the existing Spice & Mustered Oil companies target same customers. All most every company’s target customers are quite same. Their target customers are lower middle to higher income level.

In this situation, at first Aftab Energy Company’s target market will be some big cities Dhaka, Chittagong, Rajshahi, Khulna, Borishal, Sylhat etc. When the company will be able to capture this city, it will think to go all over the country.

1.5 Current Marketing Objectives

To be successful in the business, marketing objectives are very much important. Without a proper and organized marketing objective, no company can reach the goals. At present, the overall marketing objectives of the existing Spice & Mustered Oil Company in the market are to produce good quality product, supply the product in the market at lower price. They will also want to capture the market and want to win the leadership in the Spice & Mustered Oil market. The company can win the leadership by providing the better customers services.

  1. SWOT Analysis

If we look at the marketing environment, it will be clear to me that every company has some strength, weaknesses, opportunities and treats in the market. I have analyzed the marketing environment of Spice & Mustered Oil. After that I have also found our some strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and treats for us to launch the Spice & Mustered Oil company.


After analyzing the present market condition, I have got the following

strengths, which will be favorable to us to launch our business.

Brand Name Reputation

Brand name is very much important because it symbolize a company’s reputation. Aftab Group continue their business with great reputation & they able to achieve customers mind. So it is the strength side of this company. It will able to hold the brand name reputation in the soft drink market in Bangladesh.

4.1.2 Better Quality

Aftab Energy is very much quality product rather than other companies’ product.  The company will achieve a great reputation for the quality assurance. The company always tries to hold the quality of the product. Customers believe the quality of the product it always gives the quality products to their ultimate customers.  Aftab Energy.

 Strong Management Teams

The management of the Aftab Energy is very much skilled. Most of the management peoples are very much expert which is the great strength side for this company. As it is a home-based company, the company will hire some marketing expertise from some other countries.

Appropriate Management Style

As it is a local company the company has an appropriate management style. The company always tries to take decision from the top-level management through the appropriate management system. If there is any problem occurs in the management, company always try to get rid of that problems and immediately will take the right decision for doing the effective marketing in Bangladesh.

Appropriate Organizational Structure

As Aftab Energy is a home-based company doing the business in Bangladesh, I have appropriate organizational structure. Organizational structure will be developed by the local and foreign expertise.

Profit margin Will Increase

Obviously the company will gain profit if their supply is more. Supply can be more if the company uses the effective distribution channel.

Increase Market Share

As it is a new company in Bangladesh the company has the great chance to increase the market share through the effective marketing. If the total sales volume will increase then the total market share will increase also. Market shares depend on the total sales volume.


The weakness of my firm is as follows.

Less Production Plant

Although Aftab Energy is a local company but in there I have the few production plant. As a result the company will unable to produce a large number of products. That is why the company cannot provide a large number of products to their customer.

Do Not have Research and Development Department

Aftab Energy have not research and development department center so

that they cannot ensure about its competitive market as well as customer needs and wants, because they could not properly define it’s problems and cannot able to make any solution. If, they want to produce developed and upgrade product and positioning in competitive market then It face many problem.

4.2.3 Inaduquate Human Resource

Aftab Energy have not adequate human resource management so that it has to encounter about their employees as well as recruitment. And it could not develop personnel department. So that it cannot properly train up to its employee and motivate its employees to give them reward.

4.2.4 Less of Productivity

The rate at which goods and services are created as called productivity. The company has the less production capacity because as it is a new Spice & Mustered Oil company in Bangladesh. So the company will not produce a large number of products in the every year. As a result they cannot cover the Spice & Mustered Oil market by a narrow productivity.

4.3 Opportunities

Looking at current marketing environment, I have found out the following opportunities that will be favorable to launch our Spice & Mustered Oil in the market

4.3.1 More Market Share                                                                            

Acompany’s market share is its percentage of the total industry sales in the geographical area where it sales its product. Maintaining or increasing market share is a common pricing objective. Aftab Energy Company will capture a larger market share that is a great opportunity for this company. Many firms use market share figures to assess their performance. An increase in sales may help a company reduce production costs and achieves higher profits since it is cheaper on a per unit basis to produce more goods or offer more services. Firms some times lower prices try to capture a larger share of the market.

Scope of Merge with Other Spice & Mustered Oil Industry of Bangladesh

As it is a new company in Bangladesh I have the great chance to merge with other existing company in Bangladesh. If they merge with other company then their financial position will be strong as well as management also. Negotiation can reach the company in a better position. For their long-term success they can merge with each other.

Chance to Build More Production Plant

Though it is a parent company but it has less number of production plants in Bangladesh. For taking the more market share and sales the company should build more production plant in the major cities in Bangladesh to cover their target market.

Chance to Builds a Good Brand Image

Aftab Energy has a chance to build a good brand image. If can build a

good brand image then be able to very much well known company in the Bangladesh. Brand name is very much important because it symbolize a company’s reputation.


The following factors may occur as unfavorable condition to us to launch our soft drink in the market.

Government Support

Government support is very much important for a company to do the effective business in any country. Without government support any company cannot run any business. So if the company does not get the government support then it will be very much difficult for the company to do the business in Bangladesh.

Technological Change

It is true that technology makes our life easy and convenient to every situation. But sometimes it becomes harmful for a business. Sometimes technology comes as a big competitor. In Spice & Mustered Oil market if any company comes with any new technological development rather than. Aftab Energy Company then it will be very much difficult for the company to coup with the new technological development. Once a game developed then another will come in a better way with the help of technology.

Preference Diversity

Every states or geographical areas have its particular character preference. So it is very difficult for. Aftab Energy Company to position a particular product in different region or geographical area. One group may like a particular type of product. In the other hand, other group may prefer another particular type of products. If the company cannot hold the preference diversity then it will be great problem for the company to exist in the Spice & Mustered Oil market in Bangladesh.

Government Rules and Regulation

Each country or state has its own regulation and tax policies, which made it cumbersome to do business in host country. So government’s rule and regulation can be a barrier for Spice & Mustered Oil Company.

Political Unrest

Now-a-days political unrest becomes common phenomenon in a nation as well as the whole world. World is place of intense political unrest. So, political unrest can be harmful for Spice & Mustered Oil Company. World political problem become so intense that foreign operation of a particular organization are under in intense pressure.

Changes Buyers’ Habit

Buyers’ habits are changing with the change of time. Buyers are always looking for having products in some different ways. So changing buyers’ needs and habits can be harmful for Spice & Mustered Oil Company. If consumers want the innovative product but Aftab Energy of Bangladesh is unable to give them new product to their customers the customer may switch from their product.

4.4.7 Financial Risk

Financial risk is the part of every business. Substantial nonrefundable advance licensing fees and significant advertising expenses can be termed as a financial risk for a business. Moreover, new competitor can offer products in lower price. It can also be the reason for financial risk for the new Spice & Mustered Oil company in Bangladesh.

Economic Change

Changes in economic circumstances can be harmful for the Spice &

Mustered Oil Company. Personal income, savings, employment, and price level trends can have dramatic effects on the attractiveness of a firm’s products or services in output markets not only final markets, but intermediate markets as well. Economic recession may occur and it may cause great loss for the Company in Bangladesh.

Threat of Substitute Products

Manufacturers of products and suppliers of services must constantly scan their environments for the potential emergence of substitutes. The most dangerous substitutes are those that show potential for improving price -performance trade -offs and those made the firms or industries earning high profits. In this case, strategies must be formulated to protect against displacement by the substitute product. Many companies may offer innovative product with low price rather than Aftab Foods then it will be the great problem for the company to exist in the current market.

  1. Marketing Objectives

Aftab Energy wants to survive in the market for the long time. Not only has this company wanted to survive, but also wants to become the leader among the Spice & Mustered Oil industry. Aftab Energy Company has several marketing objectives.

5.1 Profit                                                                                

The first objective of this company is to maximize profit legally.

Sales Revenue

If profits are acceptable, the company will increase its sales level. The top management of the company will decide how much sales will increase based on the situation.

Provide Corporate Customer Service

Provide corporate customer service is one of the most major objectives of this company. Because the company believes that customer is the boss.

Keep Customer Loyalty

One of the majors marketing objective of Aftab Energy is to keep a high level of customer loyalty. Because the company believes that loyal customers do indirect marketing.

Market Share

When the status of the company will be high and the company will take a opinion leader for the Spice & Mustered Oil company, it will increase its market share.

Unit Sales

When the sales revenue will be decreasing because of the effects of inflation, the companies will chose to increase the number of units of its sells.

Provide Quality Product

The Company will always try to provide better quality product to the customer to survive in the market for a long run.

Reasonable Price

To provide the product at reasonable price is another marketing objective of Aftab Energy Company. Because company want to get maximum customer in the market.

  1. Marketing Strategy

Now the world is globalizing. In this global world companies need to adapt a strong marketing strategy to survive. This is why I have developed the following strategy that will be adapted to launch and to survive in this competitive world.

6.1 Target Market

The most important issue in the globalize world is customer. It is also the heart of any business. This is why the market should be segmented correctly and then according to the company’s structure, product, growth, attractiveness etc. target market should be selected.

Aftab Energy set a target market for introducing the new product. The target customer is lower income level to higher income level, Shafe of all restaurants & people from 20 to 55 years old.

At a glance the target marketed people—

Age Limit 20 years to 55 years.
Income level Lower middle level to higher income level.
Professionals Restaurant’s Shafe, Service Women & also all housewives.

Developing Differentiation Strategy

For marketing the product, the company will develop differentiation strategy by segmentation the geographic area, demographic area, and psychographics area.

7.2 Market Segmentation-

7.2.1 Geographic Segmentation

Nationality First of all Bangladeshi people.
Regions All regions people
Area All side of Bangladesh.

7.2.2 Demographic Segmentation

Age 02 years to 85 years.
Gender Male & female.
Income Level Lower middle income to higher income level.
Race All Bangladeshi people.

7.2.3 Psychographic Segmentation-

All Bangladeshi people who are like to eat spices  food

To Establish New Production Plant in Dhaka City 

Aftab Energy will establish new production plant for producing plastic foil pack. Because plastic foil pack will be used for once time. That is why customers will feel happy to buy the product. Another thing is that the existing Spice & Mustered Oil in the market are supplying their product in the plastic foil pack. So to compete with the competitor Aftab Energy will establish more than one Plant in the Dhaka city.

Expand Production Plant in Domestically

Aftab Energy will expand its production plant in domestically. Other wise they will not fill-up targeted sales. If it fails to expand its production plant in domestically, it can not compete with the competitor. Because the existing company in the market have production plant in out side of the Dhaka city. So if it wants to establish more customers it has to go to expand their production plant.

Downsizing Older Business

Aftab Energy must not only develop new business but also carefully prune, harvest or divest tried old business in order to relies needed resources and reduce cost. Weak business requires disproportionate amount of managerial attention. Managers should focus on a company’s growth opportunities, not freighter away energy and resources trying to salvage businesses.

Diversification Growth

Diversification growth makes sense when good opportunities are found outside the present business. A good opportunity is one in which the industry is highly attractive and company has the mix of business strength to be successful. The company could seek product that have technological and or marketing synergies with existing products line, even though the new product themselves may appeal to a different group of customers. Second the company might search new product that could appeal its current customers even though the new products are technologically unrelated to its current product line. Aftab Energy will focus this strategy for differentiation strategy.

7.3.4 Product Positioning

Aftab Foods Company Limited will position its product in different ways such as positioning based on a specific attributes, positioning with respect to user, positioning with respect to consumers, positioning with respect to marketing mix elements.

Positioning with Respect to Consumers:

The Company will collect the information from the consumer. The

companies will interpret the consumer’s satisfaction and dissatisfaction, emotion about the product. After analyzing this company will position its product because costumers are the bosses to the Aftab Foods Company Limited.

Positioning with Respect to Competitors:

There are many competitors in the market already. The company will look for the competitor’s action towards the product. That means the company will look what benefits the competitors give, what is the position of the competitors in the market, what strategy the competitors are following. After analyzing this company will position its product. 

7.3.7 Positioning with Respect to Marketing Mix Elements

Price is one of the key elements in positioning generic products as well as branded products. So the company will focus on price to position the products. The company will position its product in the market by taking reasonable price. Packaging could be another variable. Company will provide the product in the market through nice packaging so that the product can easily capture the consumer mind. The company will produce different size product because the size of the product is very important to position the product. Different size product will capture the different income level consumer. Quality is the important to position the product. The company will position its product by providing good quality.

  1. Marketing Mix

The most important thing for any business is marketing mix. The growth, productivity, profitability, market share all these things depend on the marketing mix. Marketing mix consists of four Ps. The four Ps are product, price, place and promotion. Here place indicates distribution. I hve also focused on the four Ps that will be adapted to launch our Spice & Mustered Oil in the competitive market greatly.


Aftab Energy is a production-oriented company. The product of the company will be Spice & Mustered Oil. The product will be good in quality and lower price. At first the company will try to produce quality product and will try to maintain the quality of the product because customers always favor the quality product. They want quality product but do not pay more money which is the theme of production oriented concept. That is why the Aftab Energy Company will emphasize on production and distribution efficiency that will enable the company to make the product available in affordable price. For this company will appoint some experts and will use appropriate technology. The company will also think about the product size, packaging. The product will be different size. The company will produce 15gm, 25gm, 50gm, 100gm, 200gm, 250gm 500gm & 1kg plastic foil pack of the product. The packaging of the product will be very attractive so that the consumer feels good to see the product.
