In order to achieve the targeted market share, the company has meticulously planned a marketing strategy which is in line with its brand marketing campaign, he said.

The aim is to sell about one million PCs and over two million TVs during the next one year, Toshiba India's Vice President - Sales and Field Marketing, Pranab Mohanty said.

Describing the company as a global leader in innovation and cutting edge technology, both Mohanty and Mizuuchi said it plans to become the No. 1 TV brand in Odisha during the ensuing Durga Puja festival season.

To propel this strategy, Toshiba launched its festival promotion campaign with "Subho LED TV" offer for Odisha Market, they said adding the company was aiming at garnering 24 per cent market share in flat panel business in Odisha during the festival period with a target of 300 per cent year-on-year growth in market share as compared to last year.
