The rural market in India is vast and scattered and offers a plethora of opportunities in comparison to the urban sector. In the recent years, rural markets in India have undergone considerable changes as the urban markets have hit saturation and relative growth has slowed down. Marketers have realized that rural India has tremendous potential and with increasing focus of the policy makers on injecting money to pump the rural economy have all contributed towards an increased interest of businesses towards rural India. Due to green revolution, the rural areas are consuming a large quantity of industrial and manufactured products. In this way rural market offers opportunities in the form of large untapped market, increase in disposable income, increase in literacy level and large scope for penetration.
