Introduction to the study
The Coca-Cola Company is an American multinational beverage corporation and manufacturer, retailer, and marketer of non-alcoholic beverage concentrates and syrups, which is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia.

The target group for Vanilla Coke was mainly urban teens and young adults with the age group of 12 to 29 years in high and middle-income group. It mainly focussed on ‘Laggards’. Vanilla Coke was launched only in metro cities in the first phase and only covered 17% of the population.
Since the best way to segment the soft drink industry is through different age groups. The analysis of the research shows that about 83% people from the age group of 20 to 30 will be interested to buy Vanilla Coke if it is relaunched. Hence the focus should only be limited to that group.
The table given below shows the three target segments for Vanilla Coke. Segment 1 consists of the people with the age of 12 to 20, Segment 2 consists of the people with the age of 20 to 30 and segment 3 consists of the people with the age of 30+.
