Contemporary Marketing for Information & CommunicationPrint this Page
Information Technology (IT) is the fastest growing segment of Indian industry both in terms of production and exports. In recent times, �software development and IT enabled services� have emerged as a niche opportunity for India in the global context. The Indian IT services market is estimated to remain the fastest growing in the Asia Pacific region according to research. The sector has attracted many players, both domestics and multinationals. India's demand for IT services and products have bolstered growth in the domestic sector with deal and contract sizes going up remarkably. For multinationals flocking to invest in their India units, India offers a market with very high returns. The increase in purchasing power and the rapid business expansion of the small and medium enterprises (SMEs) holds promise for global IT giants looking to market their products.
As the result, with the presence of many competitors offering similar products or services, marketing processes have become a challenge to many of these companies. They need to asses and formulate their strategies well, with numerous aspects such as pricing, target market, customer relations, and advertising to be considered. This is not an easy task to do, especially for smaller or a start-up IT companies with limited resources.
