Along with rapid globalization, it is tough for the businessmen to quickly react to the stimulus that would match with the thoughts of buyers. Many Indian brand origin businessmen were not able to stand firm in front of the global markets. Due to this, we Indians started to deviate towards imported goods that excelled in the field of quality and brand name. Nowadays, quality is overlooked in front of a brand name that may have originated from countries like France, Italy, or Korea even though we don’t know how to pronounce their names. The naming of brands depends on attraction as the owners have to attract the highest number of buyers as possible through precisely naming and summarizing a brand.
And no business trend stays hidden from us Indians for too long. So let’s have a look at how Indian brands used exotic foreign names rather than using local names to attract buyers from all around the world.
