(3rd semester)
Marketing environment consists of all those
internal and external forces which affect the
marketing strategies. Modern marketer
realizes that environmental scanning would
provide them with continuous interaction
between the customers and the business they
are in.
According to Philip Kotler “ Marketing
environment as the external factors and
forces that affect a firm’s ability to develop
and maintain successful transactions and
relationships with the target customers.”
The marketing environment of a business firm may be
static or dynamic when the environment forces do
not show a significant change, it is termed as stable
or static environment. And when significant changes
are seen in the environment forces it is termed as
dynamic environment. But the degree and nature of
change is predictable. There are some other forces in
the environment which have considerable influences
on the marketing strategies of a firm are listed
below;
(a) Increased Competition
(b) Labour unrest
(c) Social changes
(d) Technological changes
(e) Change in fashion
These forces are either internal or external to
the firm. The components of marketing
environment or the forces/factors affecting
the marketing environment can be grouped
in two broad categories:
I.
Controllable or Internal Marketing
Environment
II. Uncontrollable or External Marketing
Environment
Marketing environment includes all factors that
effect marketing policies, decisions and
operations of a company. The internal
environment of a firm include controllable
factors or variables such as product design,
branding packaging, pricing, advertising and
distribution policies of the firm. A firm or a
company can achieve its marketing objectives by
selecting a balanced Marketing Mix.
Marketing Mix The policies adopted by
manufacturers to attain success in the marketing
constitute the marketing mix. Marketing Mix is
considered as an important part of marketing
system of the company. It is controllable factor
of marketing environment.
The external forces or factors which constitute
uncontrollable environment are divided into
two parts for the study purpose:
(i) Micro factor such as: Suppliers,
Intermediaries, Competitors, Customers and
General public
(ii) Macro Factors such as: demographic,
economic, political, Legal, Technological,
Social and Cultural.
These factors or forces influencing marketing
decision making are collectively called as
Marketing Environment.
Micro environment factors are closely related to a
specific company/firm and are included as part of
the firm’s total marketing system. Hence,
marketers must get adequate information about
