Entering a new market: India
There are already several other apparel companies in the market which means Gap will have to have a strong marketing campaign when they open.
India is an easternized market which will be incredibly different than most companies Gap has tried to open in
Huge potential in the apparel industry as it is rapidly growing.
India is among the most influential countries in the region, neighboring countries will follow fashion trends and will want to buy Gap's clothing
Rising Urbanization means more people will be exposed to Gap's marketing.
Some of the population in India still keep to wearing traditional clothing and will not be interested in buying Gap's clothing.
Although the population in India is enormous, only around 30% of the population is urban which makes marketing to the more rural areas difficult.
They will be competing with several other companies for market power

Gap like most apparel stores is a mix between online retail and physical stores
Gap is a casual clothes company, which provides many different designs, ranging from outerwear, active wear and other accesories.
The pricing of gaps products is in the moderate wholesale price zone, which may prove too expensive for most of the lower class people in India. But with an increase in disposable income and a rapidly expanding middle class it will become much more affordable for many consumers.
Gap is available around the world in several different countries but is based in the U.S
Moving into India will be a huge challenge for Gap as they try and adapt their product to the locals liking
Gap's promotional campaign in America has been strong, and is one of the leading retailers in the U.S.
They have developed themselves over the last 80 years as a popular casual brand.

The apparel industry in India is growing rapidly and is expected to become four times bigger by 2025.
The middle class in India is expanding, which means stylish clothing will be more affordable with more disposable income.
Gap's previous campaigns in other countries have been successful
Younger more westernized Indian's will want to buy clothing from Gap
Strong experience and leadership is crucial for a company to succeed overseas, this is why Gap has hired Oliver Kaye as the head of business in India as he has already spent two years in India working for Calvin Klein, so he has experience in India and specializes in the apparel industry.

Challenges of Implementing Current GAP Marketing Strategies
