- To have an improved knowledge of the particular sector* in the selected target market, its competitive environment, key trends and opportunities.
Project constituted of two phases and took place during the period of three months. The first phase was focused on gaining knowledge about the competitive environment, consumption levels, shopper behavior and other key aspects. This enabled comparing the three markets and evaluating feasibility of introduction of a new product in each of them.
Based on comparison, a single market was selected for further research during the phase 2. It involved a more in-depth analysis of main competitors, their positioning, pricing, distribution and other strategies. Analysis performed during both phases enabled market mapping, identification of key trends and opportunities.
