How Titan decides to go after a market / category?

https://www.strategy-business.com/article/Innovating-in-traditional-retail-markets

Titan created a startup initiative within Titan and launched a program called Ignitor, to encourage teams to come up with ideas for the future.


And we published what we called Titan’s Hexagon: There are six elements that ought to be considered for selecting a business to pursue.

  • It must be an unorganized, not regulated category;
  • It must be a personal product;
  • The category must be amenable to branding;
  • Design should be an important element in the purchase consideration;
  • Cost should not be an important driver; and
  • The category should not be intensively competitive.

We will never enter the mobile phone business, for example. [Bhaskar Bhat, the now-retired head of Titan brand].
