Market ResearchOne of the most important tasks in business is to find out what products and services the consumer needs and wants

Market Research is therefore collecting information about a product and its market and then using that information to make business decisions

Market Research helps:Find out the size of the marketThe main competitorsDecide on a suitable selling priceMost effective advertising channelTo discover the most suitable name

ExampleIn 1979, Guinness brought out a low-calorie product called Guinness Light. It was aimed at the 20 to 30 age group to attract them to drinking Guinness. Proper Market Research did not happen and as a result the product failed to sell as the market was not there and despite a huge advertising budget, the product was withdrawn
