Titan Company – A Brief Overview

The Titan Company was established in 1984 as a partnership between Tamil Nadu Industrial Corporation and the Tata Group. Today, it is the world’s fifth-largest wristwatch maker and India’s largest watch manufacturer.

This company has four main business segments- Watches and wearables, eyewear, jewellery and ‘others’ (includes Indian garments, accessories and fragrances). Titan Company produces watches under its domestic brands- Titan, RAGA, Fastrack, Nebula, Octane, Sonata, Regalia etc.

The eyewear segment offers frames, lenses, and contact lenses under brands like Titan Eye+, Dash, Levis, Hugo Boss, and Esprit. Its additional offerings include personal accessories, including belts, wallets, bags and perfumes.

Since its start as Titan Watches Limited, the company transformed the watch manufacturing and jewellery business of India. It set up its first integrated watchmaking facility in 1987 at Hosur, Tamil Nadu. In 1995, it set up its Tanishq brand to capitalise on the fragmented jewellery market.

The Titan Company launched its affordable wristwatch brand Sonata in 1998. In 2003, it diversified into fashion and prescription eyewear with its Fastrack Eye-Gear. It launched its second jewellery brand Gold Plus for the mass market in 2005 and the ‘Swiss-made’ watch segment, Xylys, next year.
