Godrej Locks eyes 50 pc market share; bets big on new cheaper products, price cuts of existing ones



MUMBAI, Apr 14: Locks and security solutions company Godrej Locks has said it aims to increase market share from 30 per cent to 50 per cent in three years, riding on a new range of affordable products and reduced prices of existing ones. Shyam Motwani, head for Godrej Locks and architectural and systems, said the company's newly-launched products are over 50 per cent affordable than the existing locks, while efforts have been undertaken to make the existing locks cheaper by 7-8 per cent.

The company will rely on new affordable range and price cuts in the existing locks to achieve the objective of having the dominant market share in around three years, Motwani said.

The target is to grab 50 per cent market in the segment from the current 30 per cent, Motwani said, adding that the company sees a massive opportunity for its products in the tier-2,3, 4 cities and towns.

He further said the newly-launched locks have been designed and developed in-house, keeping in mind the needs and aspirations of ”rurban” (rural-urban) population without compromising on the products' effectiveness.

Founded in 1897, the company which has become a household name for its reliable products is looking at deepening its distribution in smaller cities.

Motwani said the ”rurban” areas account for just over a fifth of the company's revenues at present, while the larger chunk comes from top eight cities of .

The company's reach is limited to over 340 towns in tier-2, 3 and 4 cities, and plans are afoot to double it to over 700 towns or having a presence in every district, he said.
