There are two main types of market studies:

1. National Market Studies:

These studies focus on changes that take place in markets over a period of time. Information on category, brand-use patterns and consumer demographic and phychographic data is collected and analysed. After analysis, the information is used to define the target consumers, the market opportunities, and provide directional development of marketing strategy.

2. Strategic Market Studies:

These studies focus on the analysis of a specific product-market. There are three types of strategic market studies:

a. Positioning studies find interrelationships between consumer perceptions and preference for these brands.
