Importance of Market Assessment
Market assessment study involves the comprehensive assessment of several factors – market trends, evaluation of the potential of new product or service offerings, new investment or new business idea, industry risks, and constraints. A well-executed market assessment will help you identify new market opportunities that offer better returns on investments.
Whether you are interested in venturing into a new market or launching a new product, market assessment is the crucial step in determining the potential customer base for your product and service offerings. The inability to conduct an effective market assessment will ultimately lead to financial losses and wastage of resources, which could be detrimental to the future of your organization.
