The LG must improve its price strategy and promotion strategy at the movement. The LG announces the core capability and environment development product to develop in a certain level. This makes LG a wide brand image of the product. Eventhough LG employee was a many skills and talented to increase its innovative technological products to customer. But still there is some lacking into the marketing mix like pricing strategy and promotion strategy to reach the customer. In future the LG must improve its pricing strategy like to cut the cost of the exiting product by the way of minimizing its process and it must increase time utility. There is a many competitor has arise for LG product. So the technology has concerned it should increase to implement in timely mannar. This will increase to capture a more market in future.
