Internship is the mandatory for all MBA students to fulfill his Master of Business Administration in Marketing because it gives first hand experience of the complexities of practical life. As a result it benefits the students to relate our acquired knowledge with practical job life. The prime objective of the internship program is to work under organizational environment so that, we can tern up ourselves as professionals with practical experience and can get a opportunity to reconcile the theoretical knowledge with real life situation. For this reason internship is an indispensable part of MBA program. I try to prepare this report on the basis of practical knowledge, which I gather from this organization.

Origin of the report:

As a part our MBA program I have to accomplish my Internship from an organization. And in this process I have completed 3 months internee in Beximco Textile limited. Beximco is one of the largest organizations in our country and I have to involve all most all activities related with marketing. This company has four sections and I’m involved in the woven fabric section. I work only in head office of this company. The report mainly concentrates on the processing system of buyers order on woven fabric in the Beximco textile Limited (Head Office).

Objectives of the study:

The study attempted to explore and examine the present market situation of Textile and the Marketing Implications in Textiles Industry specially the objective of the study as follows:

1.1  Methodology of the study:

I have used both primary and secondary data for preparing this report. But most of the data are collected from primary source. I observed various activities of Beximco Textile Limited. My practical experience in Beximco Textile Limited (Head Office) was a great source of information.

(A) Primary source of Data:

  • Primary data is collected through unstructured personal interview with officials of Beximco Textile Limited.
  • Day to day desk job (Informal conversation with the clients)

(B)  Secondary source of Data

  • Annual report on BexTex Ltd.
  • Recent published brochure of BTL.
  • Prospectus of BexTex Ltd.
  • Published journal and articles on textile market in Bangladesh.
  • Some of the data are collected from internet.


1.2  Limitation of the study:

The limitations of the report including the following:

  • Lack of time: one of the major limitations of the study was limited time. The nine allocation of the study was inadequate. Because in this short time one inter student had to both attend the office and also do the survey. For the scarcity of time I could not communicate largely with concern persons and authority, which would be very helpful for preparing, the report could be made much more comprehensive.
  • Administrative secrecy: Another major problem every private company maintains some secrecy of its sales and Bextex Ltd. Was not expected in this regard. The authority kept much information as secrete.
  • Lack of adequate information: there was lack of necessary information what I was needed. That is primary and secondary data.
  • The training department has failed to give proper direction.
  • Information’s is not updated.
  • Lack of knowledge about textile industries.
  • Lack of self-knowledge concerning report preparation, was also a limiting factor in preparing a better report.
  • The secondary data that have been observed was in a form, which is not helpful for this study.

Theoretical Aspects

3. 3 Customer- Centered Marketing strategy

To succeed in today’s competitive market place, companies or banks need to be customer centered. They must win customers form competitors, then keep and grow them by delivering greater value, but before it satisfy customer, a company or bank must first understand their needs and wants. Thus, sound marketing requires a careful customer analysis. Companies or banks know that they can not profitably several all customers in a giving market-at least not all customers in the same way. There are too many different kinds of customers with too many different kinds of needs. Moreover, most companies or banks are in position to serve some segments better than others are. Thus, each company must divide up the total market, choose the best segments and design strategies for profitably serving chosen segments. This process involves three steps:

Market segmentation

Target marketing

Market positioning.

Marketing Strategy - Marketing Mix


Figure-: Customer Centered Marketing Strategy & Marketing Mix

Market segmentation:

Dividing a market into distinct groups of buyers who have distinct needs, characteristics, or behavior and who might require separate services or marketing programs is called market segmentation. A market segment consists of customers who respond in a similar way to given set or marketing efforts.

Target Marketing:

The process of evaluating each market segments attractiveness and selecting one or more segments to enter. A company should target segments in which it can profitability generate the greatest customer value and sustain it over time.

Market positioning:

Arranging for product or service to occupy a clear, distinctive, and desirable place relative to competing products or service in the minds of target customer. Thus marketers plan positions that distinguish their products or services form or competing brands and give them the greatest strategic advantage in their target markets.

3. 4 Capturing value form Customers

The first four steps in the marketing process involve building customer relationship by creating and delivering superior customer value. The final step involves capturing value in return, in the form of current and future sales, market share, and profits. By creating superior customer value, the firm creates highly satisfied customers who stay loyal and bye more. This, in turn, means greater long-run returns for firm. Here, we discuss the outcomes of creating customer value: customer loyalty and retention, share of customer, and customer equity.

Creating Customer loyalty and Retention

Good customer relationship management creates customer delight. In turn, delighted customers remain loyal and talk favorably to others about the bank and its services. Studies show big differences in the loyalty of customers who are less satisfied, somewhat satisfied, and completely satisfied. Even a slight drop from complete satisfaction can create an enormous drop in loyalty.

Companies are realizing that losing a customer means losing more than a single sale. It means losing the entire stream of purchase that the customer would make over a lifetime of patronage. For example- here is a dramatic illustration of Customer Lifetime value.

Growing Share of Customer

Beyond simply retaining good capture customer lifetime value, good customer relationship management can help marketers to increase their share of customer- The share they get of the customers purchasing in their service categories. Many marketers are now spending less time figuring out how to increase share of market and more time trying to grow share the customer.

Customer Equity

  • The combined customer lifetime values of all current and potential customers.
  • Measures a firm’s performance, but in a manner that looks to the future.
  • Choosing the “best” customers is key.

3.5 Customer Needs, Behaviors, and Values Clarified

  • Banks achieve better prospect and customer management by combining profitability, behavioral segmentation, and analysis
  • Banks deliver information to customer touch points (e.g., branches or call centers) to influence customer activity and workflow management
  • Stage Two banks manage and influence the workflow of their branches and call centers, and generate more effective customer acquisition and management activities

3. 6 Building the Right Relationships with the Right Customer

Companies should manage customer equity carefully. They should view customers as assets that need to be managed and maximized. Nevertheless, not all customers, not even all loyal customers are good investments. Surprisingly, some loyal customers can be unprofitable, and some disloyal customer can be profitable. Which customers should the company or bank acquire and retain. The company can classify customers according to their potential profitability and manage its relationships with them accordingly customer relationship groups. This group classifies customer into one of four relationship groups, according to their profitability and projected loyalty. Each group requires a different relationship management strategy. Which are discussed follows very briefly:  



Good fit between companies or banks offerings and customer’s need; high profit potential.

True Friends

Good fit between companies or banks offerings and customer’s need; highest profit potential.


Little fit between companies or banks offerings and customer’s need; lowest profit potential.


Limited fit between companies or banks offerings and customer’s need; low profit potential.








Figure-: Different relationship management strategy

Butterflies: Are profitable but not loyal. Good fit between companies or banks offerings and        customer’s needs. However like real butterflies, we can enjoy for only a short while and there gone.

True Friends: Are both profitable and loyal. There is strong fit between their needs and the companies or banks offerings. The firm or bank wants to make continuous relationship investments to delight these customers and nature, retain and grow them. It wants to turn true friends into “true believes” who come back regularly and tell others about their good experiences with the bank or company.

Strangers: It shows low profitability and little projected loyalty. There is little fit between the companies or banks offerings and their needs. The relationship management strategy for these customers is simple.

Barnacles: Are highly loyal but not very profitable. There is a limited fit between companies or banks offerings. For example- a Uttara bank customer who is regularly but do not generate enough returns to cover the costs of maintaining their accounts. Like barnacles on the hull of a ship they create drag. Barnacles are perhaps the most problematic customers. The bank might be able to improve their profitability by selling them more, raising their fees, or reducing service to them. However, if they cannot be made profitable, they should be “fired”.

The point here is an important one: That is different types of customers require different relationship management strategies. The goal is to build the right relationships with the right customers.

Findings and Analysis

4.1 Present Scenario of the Textile Market in Bangladesh:

Bangladesh is the best place in the region for textile and garments industry due to cheap labor and favorable trade status with the EU.  There is a huge yarn and fabric demand and supply gap in RMG industries, which is presently met by import. Presently is about 85%-90% of the demand is met by import from countries like China, India, Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, Korea, Indonesia, Taiwan etc. fabric requirement is increasing at 20% per annum. In order to stimulate rapid economic growth of the country Bangladesh Government encourage foreign investment and establish six individual export processing zone (EPZ). During the July-March 2006-07 periods, overall exports of the country reached US $9036.4 million. Represents a surge of over 20%, especially on the back of footwear and garments. Knitwear industry failed to achieve target exports of $3485.2 million and earned around $3335.2 million. Fazlul Haq, President, Bangladesh Knitwear Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BKMEA), explained, “The failure is due to the adverse effect of labor unrest in the garment sector in May 2006.”

In deciding on tile marketing program, a company must decide how much to adapt its marketing mix i.e. 4p’s (product, price, promotion and place) to local conditions, at the two ends of the spectrum are standardized and adapted marketing mixes, with many step in between. At the product level, firms can pursue a strategy or striate extension, product adaptation, or product invention, at the promotional level, firm may choose communication, adaptation or dual adaptation. At the price level firms may encounter price escalation and grey market and it may be very difficult to set standard, prices. At tile distribution level firm need to take a whole- channel view at the challenge of distributing its product to the final users.

The company is producing usually the following major product-

4.5 Manufacturing process for Textile Goods:

There are two types of manufacturing process for textile products:

  • Manufacturing process for yard dyed
  • Manufacturing process for solid dyed



4.5.2 Spinning:

The main materials used in the spinning sub-sector are raw cotton and synthetic fibers such as viscose and polyester staple fibers. In this process natural and synthetic fibers are cleaned and twisted into yarn. The row materials are move through the blow room where all impurities are removed from natural fibers only and those are rolled into laps. The laps then go through a carding machine, wee they are cleaned further and formed into silvers, thick and loosely spun yarn. In order to produce combat yarn, the fibers need to be undergoing further processing in the comber machine, were the sort stands are removed, and the remained processed into silver. The silver then fed to the draw frame, and speed removing frame where they are twisted to and drafting take place and yarn is produced. The yarn is then spun around a bobbing or cone, using autoscores or cone winding/reeling machines, packed and marked.

4.5.3 Weaving and Knitting:                           

The yarn is made into gray. At this stage fabrics processed using looms or knitting machines. At this point the material has got no color and we have to color it according to our requirement (weaving produced cloth).




Figure2: Weaving





                                                                                                                                                                                                   Prior to weaving the yarn is wrapped around beams and dipped in a size, an adhesive, which when dries gives the yarn a rigid and uniform structure. This yearn is then filled into the looms and called yard. A tread of yarn, called the waft, passed between altering ward yarn with the aid of a shuttle, air jet or rapiers.

Knitting is also used to make gray. Instead of looms, circular knitting machine are also used for knitting. Knit fabrics are much softer and more flexible than the produced on looms, and is commonly used for producing article of casual wars such as T-shirts and under garments.


4.5.4 Dying, Printing, Finishing:

At this stage the gray goes for dying, printing and finishing. After the gray is inspected, it goes through a process called the batch method when it undergoes scoring, bleaching and dying. Scouring is the treatment of gray in chemical solution in order to remove the size, natural fats, waxes, proteins and other impurities, and to make the fabric hydrophilicTe batch processing is next. It is essential in giving the cloth a clean white color. It is done using two different methods. One is bleaching with dilute hydro chloride solution at room temperature or by using hydrogen per-oxide solution at elevated temperatures (80 to 90 degree Celsius). The later method is more expensive and usually results better and longer lasting whiteness.

The scoured cloth is then dyed and then printed on. Printing is done using perforated rollers that allow certain chemicals and colors to diffuse through the holes. After that the printing has been completed and finally the fabric is washed again.

5.1 Conclusion:

In the basis of finding and analysis, this paper is examined and described how we can collect the order from the buyer and it is too difficult to collect the order from the buyer. Some time Beximco people need to go abroad for collect the order. Document must be necessary all of the function. Buyer firstly searches on the web page of Bexinco Textile Limited and they collect the necessary information from the web site. Then they give the order by using buying house. So they need to prepare such type of document and Bexico also prepare such document varies on the buyer document. According to the buyer aspect company try to prepare the fabric. In the fabric processing stage they need to collect dispo number, design, layout, cad, swatch, sample, cost related document etc. For this reason marketing section need to prepare sample form, requisition form, swatch request form etc. So all document and fabric making process complete very carefully.

As product marketer, BTL should maintain reasonable flexibility in blending the elements of its marketing management to cope with the changing needs of the markets. A pragmatic approach in this direction warrants continuous and regular evaluation of dynamic technological and socioeconomic millennium.

Business line of this company in manufacturing and marketing of high quality fabric, which have large, yet share in textile sector in Bangladesh. If the BTL wants to complete with world class textile industries, they must have analyzed about marketing distribution channel, price margin maintains by them and the promotional activities given to traders etc, In order to know the current marketing management system of this companies they must have to do market research.

Beximco enter to the world market of textile and RMG is about 30 years. In these years we have faced lot of challenges and have got lot of experience. After crossing this time now we have get the golden time to re-infrastructure and reshape our whole industry and make a revolution.  It is the appropriate time when we should think about our future industry newly. Keeping these things mind I have tried and designed my report on textile industries. It is not only my course requirement of BBA but also a step towards my professional career. I always believe that it will definitely add some values in my future goals.
