Differences between PRICE AND NON PRICE COMPETITION

Market is a place where the sellers sell their products and buyers purchase their products what they needs and wants.

Every one establish the business for the sake profits .Firms sell goods and services through a variety of direct and indirect channels.

In order to increase the profit orto increase the revenue of the firm we can follow the price competition or non-price competition.

In the price competition companies seek to attract customers solely on the basis of product price.In this marketer’s seek to influence customer demand primarily through changing the prices of the products.

In the non pricecompetition cost of thecost of the product is minimized and other making factors are maximized by the creation of a distinctive quality about the product such as its design ,performance ,advertising ,complementary and substitute goods ,availability ,customer services and loyalty programs.

In monopoly market price competition is more beneficial to the firms because only few sellers are available in the market.

In oligopoly market non price competition is more beneficial to the firms because market is controlled by the small group of firms.

In monopolistic market non price competition is more beneficial to the forms because it is imperfect competition in short run and perfect competition in long run analysis.

Unilever limited

$1:40 $1:50

$1:40

Procure &

Gamble

$1:50

12000 12000

29000 11000

3000 21000

20000 20000

For the above example it can shows the price competition .when ever the prices are remains same in the $1:40 and the profit of the price remains unchanged .Most of the firms followed by the dominant strategy. In the price competition that depends up on the opponents movement. That’s why firms are mostly used in non price competition. For example pepsi cola and coco cola are always used in the non price competition.

ELASTICITY

In order to measure this responsiveness of quality to price changes ,and ultimately impact on the total revenue. It is called elasticity. It is defined as the percentage change in one variable relative to a percentage change in another variable.

Ep=(∆Q/∆P)*(P/Q)

Where Ep= Coefficient of price elasticity

∆Q=percentage change in quantity

∆P=percentage change in price

∆=absolute change

The quantity demanded or supplied changes will change when the price changes. This is known as price elasticity of demand and price elasticity of supply respectively. Elasticity is a measure of relatively changes.

If the price of the compulsory goods can be increased and the consumer can choose the complementary goods then it is called elastic and the consumer cannot choose the complementary goods ,they are compulsory goods then it called inelastic.

In general, Oligopolies involve a large amount of non-price competition. Product development is one area of competition, and advertising makes up a large portion of non-price competition as well. Oligopolists are large firms and therefore can afford to advertise

Price is the value placed on what is exchanged. Something of value is exchanged for satisfaction and utility, includes tangible (functional) and intangible (prestige) factors.

Buyers must determine if the utility gained from the exchange is worth the buying power that must be sacrificed. Price represents the value of a good/service among potential purchases and for ensuring competition among sellers in an open market economy.

Marketers need to understand the value consumers derive from a product and use this as a basis for pricing a product--must do this if we are customer oriented.

Percent change in quantity demanded relative to the percent change in price.

% change in Qtty demanded

-------------------------

% change in price

Elastic demand is more sensitive to price than inelastic demand.

Elastic demand, greater than1

Inelastic demand, less than 1

Unitary demand, equal to 1

TR = Price * Qtty

If demand is elastic then change in price causes an opposite change in the total revenue.

If demand is inelastic then change in price causes the same change in the total revenue.

The less elastic the demand, the more beneficial it is for the seller to increase price.

Demand is more supply is less then the of the product price will be increases. It can be possible in only in the monopoly market.because single firm leads the entire market.

In the same way when the demand is more supply is less then the product of the price will not be increases in the oligopoly market because in the oligopoly all the firms having the same price and varies the product in the nonprice competition.

In the store they arranged all shampoos in the similar brands are side by side. In the store the two products of the different brands are arranged side by side then the demand and prices of the different brands are same .

In the monopolistic market two more firms lead the market.in the monopolistic market also follows the nonprice competition.

Choosing the right shampoo can be a difficult task. There are hundreds of brands, each with countless varieties, ranging from conditioning shampoo to anti-dandruff shampoo.most men could care less about what type of shampoo they use.  So show your man some love by buying him a shampoo that will keep his hair healthy. 

Water is the first ingredient in all shampoos. Detergent is the second ingredient listed on a shampoo label. The remaining ingredients include moisturizers, thickeners, conditioners, fragrances, extracts, dyes, and more.

If finding a hairstylist to help is unrealistic, there are a couple easy things to remember about finding a professional shampoo. Coarse hair tends to be more frizzy and dry, so use a heavier shampoo with moisturizing properties. Fine hair lays flatter and suffers from static, so avoid volume shampoos as they can dry out even more, and focus on light moisture. Curly hair can be coarse of fine, but generally, using a shampoo that has frizz fighters and moisture is the best option, like Redken's Fresh Curls. For color treated hair types, most professional brands have formulated all of their shampoos to be color safe. For added protection, however, alternate a color shampoo with a moisture or balancing shampoo. Oily hair needs a balancing shampoo to regulate the pH of the hair and scalp, like Matrix's Normalizing Shampoo. For extreme dryness and flaking, any shampoo with tea tree or mint oils for ingredients is preferable.

Professional brand shampoos are the best option for soft, healthy, and shiny hair. With easy access to them, inexpensive prices, and so much variety for different hair textures, there's no excuse for knowing how to really take care of hair.

Hair strands are made up of protein or keratin. They have a softer, more pliable inside called the cortex, and a harder, stronger lining called the cuticle. Most generic shampoos are not strong enough to properly penetrate the cuticle and cleanse the inside of the hair strand, which is the job of shampoo. Instead, they coat the cuticle and only buildup on the hair. Since most store brand shampoos are made with more detergent and sulfates, the buildup they cause is usually waxy and heavy. Especially for women who perm, relax, or color their hair, these shampoos will turn shiny, healthy hair into dull, weighed down strands

Learn why its better to buy professional shampoo and how to find the best one or your budget ,life style and hair type.

In the shampoo industry there are number of brands .Each brand can be manufactured by many products ,and the every product has many types .All the brands are manufactured products like Antidandruff, loss of hair fall ,black and silky, to get vitamins ,long and grow hair.

I find that many customers are willing to buy hul products. I asked one of the customer why all of them are buying shampoos and what are the benefits to you.

He said that on watching advertisements he started buying hul products .and also tells that hul has more variety of products and they are updating the products frequently.By this always gets

a new stock.the ingredients which are using hul products are not harmul to our health.the price of the hul products are reasonable and available to all the classes of the people.thats why he is choosing hul products.

Compared the rural and urban areas, urban areas are more sales in shampoos because it is difficult to get natural products.hul products are more interact with the all kinds of areas. Most of the people living in the urban areas are coming from the rural.they all of them know hulproducts.thats why hul products has more sales comparing to the other brands.

When the demand of the shampoo increases price is automatically decreases, because if any product has more demand then automatically many of them starts the business.

Hul has a greater supply and the other are relatively low compared to hul.thats why the supply of hul increases price also increases.shampoos are inelastic products because there are no complement products.in this quality demanded or supplied changes will change when the price changes.
