Aspirational Appeal Vs. Localised Bliss: Banking The Indian Consumer

Aspirational Appeal Vs. Localised Bliss: Banking The Indian Consumer..!

by Mr. Shajai Jacob, JLL India & Sri Lanka

McDonald’s, known the world over for its hamburgers, does not serve beef and pork in India. The global chain’s signature dish here is the McAloo Tikki burger, accounting for 25% of total sales. A good 70% of McDonald’s menu has been locally developed to suit the Indian palate. The quick service restaurant (QSR) player even made headlines across the globe in 2012 when it opened its first vegetarian outlet near a religious site in India.

Not only McDonald’s menu but also its pricing has been adapted to the Indian market. It is not alone, however, when it comes to need-based customisation. Late last year, India also emerged as Domino’s biggest market outside US. 

The pizza maker delivered about twice the number of burgers McDonald’s sold. In fast moving consumer goods (FMCG), Unilever has an edge in the country thanks to its strategy of allowing local markets to build their own innovation capabilities over the years. P&G, on the other hand, relied on superior products developed for sophisticated markets for a long time.

Driving Mr. India..!

Sometimes, the key to success could be market positioning too. Car manufacturers like Suzuki and Tata Motors have come to be known for their small-sized and affordable cars. 

However, when Tata Motors launched the cheapest car in the world – the Nano – with the objective of having the two-wheeler junta upgrade to four-wheelers and drive safely, Maruti Suzuki was in a fix. Perhaps finding it challenging to sell their big-sized or top-of-the-line models, the company has established a new chain of premium stores to sell such models.
Shajai Jacob,

Similarly, while certain models of Mercedes Benz are popular with taxi fleets in the developed world, only a few luxury hotel chains in India use them in their fleets. Foreign brands in India come with an aspirational value attached, not only in cars but also in something as trivial as coffee. 

For example, Starbucks positions itself as a premium coffee brand in India with stores showcasing the local culture and history, unlike in the US where most of its sales come from takeaways as people prefer to take their coffee to work. This underscores the fact that foreign brands must necessarily localise if they hope to succeed in emerging markets.

Housing The Indian HNI..!

In real estate too, local developers having international partners/ architects command a higher premium. As the number of ultra-high-net individuals (UHNIs) in India increases, branded residences are also gaining popularity. In this segment, developers join hands with globally reputed luxury hospitality or lifestyle brands to create unique and highly differentiated luxury residences. 

Branded residences obviously bring with them the advantages of these designer labels, along with highly aspirational addresses. In fact, the concept of branded residences now works like Swiss clocks in India.

Thanks to the influence of the partnering brands, which take their production values very seriously, such homes boast of professionally designed interiors and exteriors, top-in-class facilities management, concierge and valet parking services, and state-of-the-art electronic safety features. 

Such features have extremely high appeal value for affluent Indian home buyers who respond both to the status value and advanced conveniences of branded homes designed, marketed and often managed by international hospitality or signature designer brands.

Latching On To The India Story

With their international brand following and aspirational appeal, foreign brands can continue to succeed in India with localisation and capture market share, especially in the premium products and services’ space. However, they need to realise that while the psyche of Indian consumers turns aspirational, it will continue to remain domesticated.

People love to have Indian food even when they go on a Europe tour. They would prefer to eat a Gujarati thali in an Indian restaurant in New Jersey. Closer home, you may easily find a modular kitchen by Hettich in many a home, but it will be hard to miss the pressure cooker being used for cooking. Interestingly, this is the reason why dishwashers haven’t met the expectations their manufacturers had for the Indian market. 

To succeed in markets like India, foreign brands will need to follow the mantra of ‘think global, act local’ diligently.

Indians will continue to consume international brands at a fast rate, sometimes even beating the growth of local and national brands. 

 Already, a report by British Bank Stanchart confirms that India’s economic growth in FY’17 is expected to be driven by consumption increasing on the heels of government employees’ revision in salaries. This would reverse the trend of FY’16, in which growth has been largely investment driven.

Indian brands too will see more ‘acche din’ ahead as they continue with their highly-localised offerings and package age-old favourites in new ways. 

Today, an Indian Yoga Guru's consumer products brand ‘Patanjali’ is making global and domestic rivals sweat. Patanjali products are selling like hot cakes, with some news reports saying its 20 billion-rupee revenues this year could pose a threat to established, age-old Indian consumer brands. Home-grown retailer Future Group has aggressive plans to become a FMCG player.

Today, with domestic brands like Haldiram’s leading the Indian snack market and surpassing the combined sales of McDonald’s and Domino’s, it is a case study in itself for students of business schools. 

Moreover, Indian brands dominate the 2015 edition of ‘Brand Footprint’, a ranking of India’s most chosen consumer brands by IMRB Kantar Worldpanel. This shows how local brands are on a strong footing that matches their foreign counterparts. 

With the right moves, both foreign and Indian brands can maximise profits on the burgeoning Indian market and a growing aspirational middle class.

Pune Office Rentals On The Rise..!

Pune Office Rentals 
On The Rise

by Mr. Ashutosh Limaye, 
JLL India

After years of stable rental growth thanks to the y-o-y supply-demand ratio remaining almost at par, Pune has seen a rapid growth in office rents over the last four-six quarters. 

 This is due to absorption having increased during the same time period while Grade-A supply remained subdued. Interestingly, this rise in rentals is across Grade-A and B buildings. Project-specific rents also increased significantly higher than the market average during the period.

Last 3 Years – Grade-A supply (from 3Q12 to 3Q15)
10.5 million sq ft
12.6 million sq ft
Demand Supply difference (Grade A)
Approx 2 million sq ft

The annual rental growth witnessed in Grade-A projects is to the tune of 10-13%. Securing space in the form of pre-commitment has been an increasing trend in Pune due to the limited vacant space in completed Grade-A projects. The limited availability and comparatively higher rents in Grade-A projects has given rise to a trend of tenants securing space in built-to-suit (BTS) properties or opting for Grade-B properties in Pune.
Ashutosh Limaye,
JLL India
The overall vacancy in Pune has reduced from 16% in 2011 to 5% in 2015. The absorption in Grade-B buildings has increased significantly in the last four-six quarters. Not only the demand by IT/ ITeS players, which has shown robust growth over the years, but also demand by BFSI players is rising in the city. However, corporate occupiers actively evaluating Grade-B options often face issues like lack of larger floor-plates, amenities, good locations and connectivity.

(as of 3Q15)

What actually happened?

A few years ago, when IT office supply increased, developers imagined a possible situation of oversupply in the market – if new supply kept entering the market at that rate. Anticipating such a scenario, a few players de-notified their special economic zones (SEZs) or converted their commercial development plans into residential ones. At that time, residential realty looked like the safest bet. The demand was, however, misinterpreted and has continued unabated unlike what developers had expected.

The way forward

Rents are being revised upwards by developers given this situation. On the back of continued demand, office rents will keep increasing across the city until enough fresh supply becomes available. It is high time more IT/ ITeS supply was bought in. On the back of a positive business sentiment, select IT/ ITeS occupiers have expansion plans. Some may go ahead with constructing BTS facilities. Others are likely to lease space in IT and IT-SEZ office buildings.

Demand in 2015-2016 will primarily be driven by companies in the IT/ ITeS and banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI) sectors. The contribution of BFSI to the total absorption has shown continuous improvement in the past few quarters and there will be need for office spaces for these companies too.

Facilities Management in India: Rapid Evolution

Facilities Management in India: Rapid Evolution

by Mr. Sandeep Sethi, JLL West Asia

Integrated Facilities Management (IFM) is a fairly new business offering in India. Outsourcing of individual services had started in the early ‘90s, when the concept of outsourcing was introduced in the country on the back of offshored IT and IT-enabled services (ITeS). 

Integrated delivery of Facility Management services through single-point providers, on the other hand, arrived only about a decade ago.  Over this decade, we have seen the FM sector become increasingly organized.

Growth & Growth Drivers

Today, the size of the organized FM services industry is pegged at around USD 7.6 billion, and has grown at 15-20% over the last few years. By 2020, we expect the sector to cross USD 19.4 billion.

The key growth drivers for the sector have been:
  • Changes in the economy and economy-impacting policies
  • The increased presence of global industries in India
  • Increased adoption of FM outsourcing
  • Growth of certain sectors like retail, hospitality, industrial and healthcare
Mr. Sandeep Sethi,
JLL West Aaia

The maturity level if IFM varies across sectors, and the levels of outsourcing of IFM vary significantly within and between different Industry sectors. For example global IT / ITeS companies with large footprints in India have fairly mature FM outsourcing models, while others are still evolving towards full-fledged IFM adoption

How The FM Sector Has Evolved

Expectations from service providers vary, depending for example on whether they are multi-national companies or local cleaning firms. However, we have noted an increasing shift in client conversations; today, discussions often centre around concepts such employee experience and engagement, employee health and safety, smart and sustainable workspaces, and business continuity assurance.

Technology is playing a decisive role in the delivery methodology of FM services, affording a more responsive and efficient experience to the users of such services.  

Maintenance management and work order management technology platforms are finding a permanent place in mature IFM contracting models. Others that are forming a part of Integrated FM delivery are tools for financial management, benchmarking, energy management, space planning, lease management, etc. These are being offered as individual or as integrated solutions by service providers like JLL.

Apart from the standard delivery bouquet, sustainability initiatives that focus on energy and water conservation and thereby reducing the cost and carbon outcome of business operations attributable to management of real estate are now being offered as part of IFM contracting models.

Employment Growth In The FM Sector..!

FM in a lot of ways mirrors the growth trajectory of the IT/ITeS sector, with very similar talent demands as well as talent-related challenges. There is a minimum year-on-year additional manpower demand of about 14%. If one adds an approximate attrition rate of 25% to this, the minimum employability opportunity is 39% at a principle employer level. At a sub-contractor level there is a similar demand.
