Today, the term 'market' has a renewed meaning and implication. It is as diverse in meaning as it is in functionality. There is a dedicated market for every sphere of business product and service. The market for a particular product or service is governed by availability, accessibility and subject to change. A market is classified on the basis of whether the targeted user of the product is a consumer or a business. Accordingly, the market is further divided into that of end or middle products.

Ideally, the market gurus have defined market classification as 'the identification of the 'end' the products or services serve'. Classification of any market is in fact, the starting point for any future analysis. The market is distinct for every product and service and needs to be identified at the onset of a venture. It is extremely essential for any business to first conduct a detailed study of the targeted market and then proceed to make the initial investment and project report. All through the operations and life of a business, every change in design and strategy is based on the market demand and quality. The process of classifying a market involves the expertise and experience of marketing professionals.
