Market Expansion

The Market Expansion step is that period when a company assesses current markets, identifies untapped markets, and seeks opportunities for revenue growth through new market opportunities. The market expansion step will result in estimates for delivering new capabilities to current markets, and potential new markets for existing products. These estimates include alternative industries and geographic areas.

Market Expanison also identifies alternative technology, additional uses for products, determines any changing market conditions, and measures relative costs for diversifying into targeted markets
