Market / Pricing Demand

Price setting is about understanding the value equation and not just the cost of production. Similarly, price elasticity research is not linear, so merely cutting the price will not necessarily result in increased demand.

• Demand Forecasting • Price / Volume Assessment • Price Elasticity • Market Segmentation • Economic Impact Analysis • Economic Forecasting • Brand Awareness / Assessment
