Abstract:
In the modern marketing environment consumers are becoming more and more demanding since the market is glutted with endless products and countless brands and offering them rich choices. The purchase behaviour of the consumers for such products is of special interest to the marketer since these items are purchased repeatedly and it is this purchase that results in generating volumes and profits. Brand loyal consumers as a matter of fact, provide the basis for a stable and growing market share of a company. Therefore, interest of marketers hover around the ways and means to develop and sustain brand allegiance for their products and services. However, retaining customers in a highly competitive and volatile market place is indeed a difficult proposition. Creating brand loyalty in an overcrowded category is an onerous task. However, in the Indian market it is not altogether impossible, if the success of Hindustan Unilever, Titan, Amul, Maruti- Suzuki , Nirma, Airtel and many others is of any indication. Against such a backdrop, the researcher has decided to undertake a study that extends over a wide canvas entailing a comprehensive examination of the brand loyalty behavioural pattern of the women skincare cosmetics consumers in the state of Tamilnadu.
