Micromax IN series: What are the analysts saying

Micromax is banking on a tug of nationalism to drum up its advertising campaign as it gets ready for launch. But will that be enough to get the consumer? We spoke to analysts who said the anti-Chinese sentiment is a short run game. Micromax will have to offer value and quality to the consumer in order to survive long term is what analysts agree upon. According to IDC's Navkendar Singh, "For the consumer, it is about value, he sees the value and Chinese players have been giving the value. They (Micromax) have to match them (Chinese) in terms of product portfolio, in the specification versus price equation, in terms of investment, in marketing, retail marketing, online player distribution. If they’re not able to do that, they will just fizzle out."

Canalys' Rushabh Doshi told indianexpress.com, "Micromax now faces competition with big pockets, which has a lot of money to spend, especially when it comes to branding and advertising. They will have to be quick in rebuilding that brand presence." Read the full article here.
