ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

Gratitude is a not a thing of expression; it is more a matter of feeling.

I take the opportunity to express the feeling of gratitude towards Veer Narmad South Gujarat
University for keeping Industrial training as a part of Bachelor of Business Administration
course.

It has been rightly said that efforts of a person leads to success in any good work only with the
cooperation and help of others. So first I would like to thank Shree Uttar Gujarat BBA
College, for giving me an opportunity to do Industrial Training and project work as a special
subject and providing such a wonderful platform to represent ourselves as BBA students.

From an institution side I owe great and deepest thanks to my mentor, Mr. Hiren S. Patel for
their encouragement and important guidance in project. My, deep sense of gratitude towards
Sony Center, Surat and Mr. Dharmesh Modi (Manager) who has been helpful to me in
completing the project report.

I would also like to say thanks to my parents and friends who cooperated with me during the
entire training and survey.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

In present scenario, to survive in market in such a tough competition is very difficult so each and
every company has to adopt strategies to gain its competitive advantage in such a tough
competitive era.

It is very necessary for a company to know the customers perception towards the product i.e.
basically what the customers think and feel about the product of a particular company. The study
on customers perception conducted helps a company to know that what kind of product they
should design for consumers and what kind of changes and innovation they can make in their
existing products.

So, I have conducted this study to know Customers Perception towards 4Ps of Sony LCD TV.
The main objective of this study is to get the knowledge that how the company performs and
most importantly what is the current customers perception towards 4Ps of Sony LCD TV.

So firstly, I have given details of the related industry of LCD TVs i.e. Consumer Durables
Industry and then the details about my company i.e. Sony. The objective of this study is attained
by method of survey, collection of data and analysis of collected data. There were few
limitations faced by me during the entire study of project.

In this project report, I have conducted pilot survey of 20 samples and from that I derived my
sample size of 140 respondents. I have surveyed 140 samples from different areas of Surat city to
collect the data. The data collection tool used by me was Questionnaire. I have made tables
representing frequency and the total percentage of respondents and different graphs for
systematic presentation of my collected data. I have used bar graph, pie chart, column chart,
pyramid chart, etc.

I have used both primary as well as secondary data. I have collected the data through personal
survey. The survey method used is Non Probability Convenience Sampling Method due to the
limitation of lack of knowledge being a student, large population and cost of survey.
The findings and conclusion includes the facts discovered from the survey. From the facts
derived I have made suggestions to the company to focus on competing with other key players,
after sales services and provide discounts and vouchers.
And, ultimately I have concluded project that customers have positive perception which resulted
into fulfillment of objectives with which the project was started.
