Market research can be defined as the method of gathering data on goods and services to determine whether they will succeed in the marketplace and establish if there is a viable business opportunity.
It is an essential tool for the success of your business. Regardless of whether you are a business start-up or looking to expand, market research can provide valuable information about new product launches, barriers to entry, niche market identification, competitor analysis, market sector trends and help make strategic business decisions.
