This burgeoning consumer market has attracted international firms to promote their products and services. The rapid pace of economic development not only brought prosperity to Indian consumers but also enhanced their purchasing power and spending habits. This change in society established a culture of consumerism (Singh, 2003). I contribute to the chapter by discussing the impact of economic reform on business performance, comparing business practices of foreign and local firms, and highlighting the future of marketing in the Indian market.

During the earlier period of the pilot study, we realized that the questions were sensitive and thus the use of direct interviewing technique was not feasible.
