Types of Market Segmentation
 Consumer Market Segmentation

segment a market. A
marketer has to try
different segmentation
variables, alone and in
combination to find the
best way to view the
market structure.
Consumer Market Segmentation Variables
 Consumer market can be segmented through the
following variables;
 Geographic segmentation
 Demographic segmentation
 Psychographic segmentation
 Behavioral segmentation
Geographical Segmentation
 Dividing a market into
different geographical
units such as nation,
province, regions,
countries, cities and
climate etc.
Geographic Segmentation Variables
 Continents or World Regions-Africa, Asia, Europe
 Countries-Afghanistan US, Pakistan
 Province- kabul, Jalalabad, Herat
 City or Metro Size- under 5000 people, 5000-19,999
 Climate- Tropical, Temperate, Cold.
Demographic Segmentation
 Dividing the market
into groups based on
demographic variables
such as age, gender,

Bases for Segmenting Business Markets
Demographic segmentation
Business markets can be segmented on the basis of Industry,
company size and location etc.
For Example; Textile, Sugar and FMCG (Fast Moving
Consumer Goods) are different industries, so there raw
material and machinery will be available in different business
Operating variables
Business markets can be segmented on the basis of
Technology, usage status and customer (business) capabilities.
For Example; Computers, mobile phones and electronics are
technology based products as compared to juices and
furniture. So on the basis of technology, business market will
be different.
Purchasing approaches
Business markets can be segmented on the basis of Regular
purchases and occasional purchases.
For Example; Some type of raw materials are regularly
purchased by different businesses like stationary, papers, paints
etc but some raw materials like sugarcane, cotton will be
purchased occasionally in the season.
Situational factors
Business markets can be segmented on the basis of Urgency,
specific application and size of order.
For Example; Some businesses are very big businesses, therefore
their size of order for raw materials are also very big, so such
markets may be segmented which are selling products in larger
quantity only or in wholesale, not in retail.
Personal characteristics
Business markets can be segmented on the basis of Buyer-seller
similarity, attitudes toward risk, loyalty.
For Example; If the buyer (Businessman of sugar mill) makes a
contract with seller (Farmer of sugarcane) that for next 10
years , he will provide a specific quantity of raw material to
him on a specific price. So in this regard, the buyer (Business)
reduces his risk and he created loyality.
International Market Segmentation
 “Forming segments of consumers who have similar needs
and buying behavior even though they are located in
different countries.”
 Geographical Segmentation
 Economic Factors Segmentation

grouping countries by region such as Western Europe, Middle East,
South Asia etc.

Target Marketing
Target Marketing
 Target market: A set of buyers sharing common
needs or characteristics that the company decides to
 After successfully segmented the market the firm
now must evaluate the various segments and decide
how many and which segment it can serve best.
Steps in the Target Marketing Process
• Evaluating Market Segments
• Selecting Target Market Segments
Evaluating Market Segments
 In evaluating different market segments, a firm must look at
three factors:
 Segment size and growth
Analyze sales, growth rate and expected profitability.
 Segment structural attractiveness
Consider effects of Competitors, Availability of Substitute
Products and the Power of Buyers & Suppliers. A segment is less
attractive if it already contain strong and aggressive competitors
or substitute products.
 Company’s objectives and resources
Even if a segment has the right size and growth and is
structurally attractive, the company must consider its own
capability, compatative advantage, objectives and resources.
Selecting target market segments
 After evaluating different segments, the company must
decide which and how many segments it will target.
 A target market consists of a set of buyers who share
common needs or characteristics that the company
decides to serve.
 Buyers have unique needs and wants, a seller could
potentially view each buyer as a separate target market.
Then a seller might design a separate marketing program
for each buyer.
 Companies can target very broadly , very narrowly or
some where in between.
 There are four different types of strategies which the
marketers apply while selecting target market segments.
Target Marketing Strategies
Undifferentiated (mass
Targeting broadly
(local or
targeting narrowly
Undifferentiated Marketing
 A firm might decide to ignore market segments and
target the whole market with one offer. This mass
marketing focuses on what is common in the needs
of consumers rather than on what is different.
 For Example; Nestle offers mineral water for the
entire market without any change for different
customers attributes.
Marketing Mix
A. Undifferentiated Marketing
Differentiated Marketing
 A firm decides to target several market segments and
design separate offers for each.
 For Example; Head & Shoulders design separate
nature of shampoo for different types of customer
Marketing Mix 1
Marketing Mix 2
Marketing Mix 3
Segment 1
Segment 2
Segment 3
B. Differentiated Marketing
Concentrated (Niche marketing)
 A third market coverage strategy is specially
appealing when company resources are limited.
Instead of going after a small share of a large market,
the firm goes after a large share of one or few smaller
 For Example; Pepsi offers Diet Pepsi (Pepsi Max) for
Diabetes patients and diet conscious people.
Segment 1
Segment 2
Segment 3
C. Concentrated Marketing
Micromarketing (Local or Individual Marketing)
 The practice of tailoring products and marketing
program to the needs and wants of specific
 Individual marketing has also labeled one to one
 For example. Dell is doing individual marketing, by
taking the order of every individual and prepare the
computer accordingly for each customer.
