Amway Plans to Foray into Indian Cookware Market

India: The American food and nutrition company, Amway, which has a presence in the Indian market through 130 products across nutrition, beauty, home care and personal care categories, has decided to launch a premium cookware range called ‘Amway Queen’.

The product has been priced at around USD460 (INR30,000) and will offer a five-piece cookware set under the new range. The company is expecting a contribution of more than 10% to its revenues in the next three years. To establish the market in this segment, Amway must compete against dominating players like TTK Prestige Hawkins Cookers Ltd., Wonderchef Home Appliances Pvt. Ltd, etc. The company has also spent a substantial amount to promote the product by providing demonstrations in order to show the efficacy of the product and equipping the sellers with the appropriate tools for the demonstration purpose.

The company already has a reputation for providing quality nutrition and personal care products and this reputation will help them foray into the Indian consumer durables market.
