The impact of advertisement on the demand of commodity product specifically Glass is to find out. India is the only country where glass as commodity product is being advertised on TV. But their effectiveness in impacting consumers mind for using more glass is not clear. How the ad affects the market share and perception of the glass in the mind of consumers is to be figured out Scope of the Study
The study will be conducted in India with limited scope of A and B class cities where 80%(building material) commodities are sold. Primary focus of the study will be on Glass. The most of the survey is limited to Mumbai and nearby city around it. Literature survey
This is the most researched topic and various methods were adopted to check the effectiveness of advertising by different researchers. But that previous research has not speciﬁcally measured the impacts of advertising and brand value, and their joint effect, on ﬁrm performance for the glass kind of commodity product. We could not find the study which talks the likeable attributes in commodity products like glass. What exactly customers are looking for in a glass? By examining the effects of advertising and brand value, our work contributes to the existing literature. The Research Problem
The research problem is to find out the impact of advertisement on demand of commodity product specifically glass. Research Objective

The null hypothesis and the research hypothesis has been developed keeping assumption that the research will be specifically for the commodity product glass and keeping all the factors affecting the glass busying constant other than advertisements. The null hypothesis and alternate hypothesis is prepared to prove the research objectives. After the research study we should be able to judge the above hypothesis by accepting or rejecting it. The result will tell us about the effectiveness of the advertisements on glass (commodity product) and should also explain the awareness on the different glass brands. The Research Design
Research is going to be descriptive as well as applied in order to achieve the desired objectives. Most of the objectives will be derived from the primary data after the survey.
