1.
Penetration Pricing:
 
This pricing strategy is followed by companies with the intention to maximize their market share. They believe that a higher sales volume will lead to lower unit costs & higher long-run profit. Example: China Mobile Phones in India.This is one of the fastest growing industries in India. China mobile phones are cheap and offer the same features as a expensive mobile from some other well known manufacturer  few samples of Chinese mobiles are shown above. Only problem that exist for theChinese mobile phones is that consumer generally have a low quality perception associated with them and hence, do not trust their quality. However, they are well suited to people who want to enjoy features of a high end mobile without having a budget for the same. 2.Predatory Pricing 

This pricing strategy is followed with the intention to wipe out the competition Example: In the year 2003, LG and Samsung along with Reliance came up withRs. 500/- mobile scheme where both handsets along with connections were available for Rs. 500/-. This was something which revolutionized the mobile phone and telecom industry 3.Perceived value Pricing:
