  1. 1. Consumer Problems in service sector DR. NIDHI GUPTA
  2. 2. Matured Sectors  Based on the maturity level of the various consumer services sectors, the following sectors are far more matured in terms of investments, service delivery and innovations. At their current levels of maturity, these sectors are riddled with entry barriers like huge investments, higher risks and complex legal procedures. In spite of this, they offer good returns on investments. Thus entrepreneurs willing to venture into these segments must be prepared to invest huge money and take great risks.
  3. 3. Banking and financial services:  Banking services that started in Europe in the 12th century evolved from the need of safeguarding the money of travelers who roam across the continent. Present day banking system is much more complex and requires huge investments and a plethora of legal compliances & permissions to start banking business. These services reflect the current changes in the demographics and they change with the changing demography.  For instance, banking industry witnessed a surge in growth as employment levels increased in the post-liberalization era leading to increased disposable incomes. Similarly, other financial services like insurance services, chit fund services, etc. also have tasted success.
  4. 4. Education:  Education as a consumer service has evolved from the need to acquire knowledge, improve grades, get better jobs and stay abreast with changing times. Academicians too have evolved from simple knowledge providers to integrated facilities for overall development. Apart from regular academics, people also go for vocational or work-specific certifications/courses that can give them a boost in their careers.  To make things easy, many universities – both Indian and foreign – offer online certification courses for aspiring people. Education as an investment avenue is quite matured and requires big initial investments (while returns are commensurate with the investments).
  5. 5. Travel services:  There is a steady rise in the consumer travel needs and this can also be linked to the increasing employment avenues and increasing income levels. Raising disposal incomes have also led to increased travel services catering to both regular travel as well as holiday travel. Many travel agencies like Club Mahindra Holidays, Cox &Kings Thomas Cook, Raj Travels and Travel Port among others have mushroomed in the recent past to address this growing need by helping consumers to plan their travel schedules and provide other allied services. Travel services also include ticketing services that in itself is a big business.  Ticketing services first started with the flight booking and eventually seeped into other modes of transport including train and bus. Today, ticketing agencies like IRCTC, MakeMyTrip.com, Cleartrip.com, iBibo.com, Yatra.com and Redbus.com are some of the vendors that are flourishing by rendering these consumer services.
  6. 6. Bill payments:  Though it looks petty, this is a very useful service for consumers who cannot spend time going around the offices of utilities and government departments to pay their bills. Online bill payment service has evolved around this need to save time while getting things done. This need has been so drastically felt that government have entered the scene and opened e-portals to address this using the online channel. e-Seva from Government of Andhra Pradesh is a classic example.
  7. 7. Fast food restaurants:  Today there are quite big names in quick service restaurants business that offer ready-to-eat fast foods in ambient atmosphere. The changing demographics have prompted the demand for eating outside and this was further fuelled by entry of organized multinationals like McDonalds, Subway and KFC. This is a multi-billion dollar industry today and is putting up impressive growth rates year after year. However, the operational risks are equally higher as that of the revenues.
  8. 8. Beauty & Wellness:  Look good and feel good factors are key drivers of this industry. The modern lifestyle that people lead today is enabling this industry by providing unlimited supply of customers with desire to look good. Be it cosmetic enhancements or slimming regimen, this industry is catering to a growing customer base from both the genders. Almost all of the top players in this industry like VLCC have expanded their presence through franchising.
  9. 9. Emerging Sectors  Unlike the matured sectors, there are other sectors in consumer services that are still in the emerging phase. They are characterized by innovative business models, lower levels of initial investment, lower risks, minimal legal compliance and medium to good returns on investment. Trailblazers in these segments have often started off humbly and went on to make fortunes as they grew. These segments are the current hotbeds for investment and entrepreneurs looking to make it big in consumer services must focus in these areas. Here are a few such segments:
  10. 10. E-Commerce:  E-commerce in India initially sounded at the turn of the millennium, but fizzled out due to lack of proper infrastructure and high speed Internet. However, it picked up steam in the late 2000s as the Internet speeds spiked and as home-grown brands Flipkart.com, Myntra.com and Jabong.com among others made their foray.  The biggest pull for e-commerce is the convenience of shopping from the comfort of your home. Consumers and netizens today are entangled in time-poverty and do not often find time to go around shopping for things they need. E-commerce comes as the savior in such times by saving time, providing the element of convenience, while enhancing the user experience.
  11. 11. Re-Commerce/Classifieds  : As e-commerce caters to the primary market handling new products, re-commerce addresses the secondary market that handles pre-owned and refurbished products. Re-commerce market is on the rise currently as more and more aspiring people seek their dream brands and products at affordable prices. While Quickr and OLX have garnered reputation as online re-commerce players, YNew is pioneering the brick-n-mortar store format through franchise route.
  12. 12. Repair Services:  This particular consumer service is fuelled by ever increasing number of consumer durables and electronic gadgets that enter the market every year. Products break down while in use and need to be serviced. Repair services, especially, for the electronic gadgets like smartphones and PCs are on the rise.  From street side vendors to organized players like e-Techies and YNew, everybody is working their way to increase their share of the pie. The service providers often use innovative ways to attract consumers to get their devices serviced.
  13. 13. Day Care:  There is a pressing need for babysitting and day care services in cities and urban regions as both the parents go for work. This segment is lately receiving more attention from the investors as organized pre-school setups have succeeded in addressing these needs. Still in its nascent stage, the market is also getting filled with fragmented unorganized and small-time players sprouting around street corners. However, the impending policy sanctions due for next year may change the operational dynamics.
  14. 14. Laundry Services:  The traditional dry cleaning segment that was filled with fragmented, unorganized single shop vendors is getting a facelift with the arrival of organized brands like Wardrobe, White Tiger, Pressto and Four Seasons Dry Cleaning. Along with them, they have brought the organized look for this segment. However, the organized players are required to augment their efforts in creating brand awareness among the larger public, as the current awareness is at miniscule levels.
  15. 15. Real Estate Services:  When there are large scale migrations from hinterlands to urban metropolis, the need for real estate services also raise proportionally along with the migrations. People rent houses when they shift to a new places and purchase properties as they settle in life. Rental agencies and brokerage firms came in to existence as individuals cannot scout entire cities to find their dream house.  Magicbricks.com, CommonFloor.com, 99acres.com, makaan.com and Housing.co.in are some of the examples of online organized real estate platforms that operate online. By aggregating properties under one roof, they have made life easier for people search for properties.
  16. 16. Home Interiors & Improvement:  Home interiors segment is an integral part of the construction industry and is closely linked to the development of real estate industry.

Consumers are not hesitating to pay more to get their dream homes decorated in beautiful ways.
