Retail Business Analysis and Decision-Making - Case Study ExampleThe general strategy was low damage but the price elasticity of the product and other factors were taken into consideration in terms of quantity purchased and price set. Product 1 An assessment of the historical trends along with pre-simulation securities industry information revealed that the average demand for the product was 2,590,000 in year 1 and 2,680,000 in year 2. The growth in demand was expected to continue ground on the trend in the graph. This was attributed to the fact that product is widely used by all age and income groups in the population.

Our market share was average for this product ranging from 15.6% to 12.5%. Product 4 Based on the trends in historic demand for the product it is clear that demand is cyclical with the lowest demand in quarter 1 of each year.
