The researcher had intended to establish the effect of market segmentation on the corporate profitability of telecommunication companies. The questionnaire was used as the survey method of collecting primary data for the study. Data was collected from primary sources and multiple regression was used for data analysis. The regression result of the study’s model suggests that Market segmentation have impact on Profitability, it is however shown that the coefficient of the independent variable (Market segmentation) positively relate to Profitability. The parameters show that increase in Market segmentation increases Profitability by 30.6%. The regression results also reveal that holding Market segmentation to a constant zero, Profitability will be at a factor of 2.709. This further affirms the importance of Market segmentation in an organization. The regression result also reveals that Profitability and Market segmentation are correlated by 0.737; this indicates a very strong relationship between Market segmentation and Profitability. It is also pertinent to note that Market segmentation has significance lower than 5% (0.013) indicating its statistical significance and suitability for decision making. Using correlation technique, it is evident that all variables have positive correlation as the correlation coefficient is 0.737. This implies that there is a strong positive relationship between Profitability and Market segmentation. Also, the f-stat value of 7.829 is greater than f-tab (4.13). To further certify this is the P-value having significance value less than 0.05. All of this imply that H1 is true and accepted hence rejecting H0. Conclusively, this research found that there is a positive linear relationship between Profitability and Market segmentation. Therefore, On the basis of the findings of this study, it was concluded that market segmentation is crucial in the enhancement of the business of any organization. It is recommended that Organization need to get professional marketers that can enlighten and train their organization as a whole on marketing segmentation, and marketing strategies as a whole.
