Market structure profile analysis is a new technique for estimating the likely results of implementing alternative growth strategies. The methodology focuses on three key measures-industry market potential, relevant industry sales, and real market share. The growth planner should estimate what is likely to happen to each of these measures if alternative growth strategies are implemented. This provides the manager with new perspectives for estimating the cost-benefit trade-offs related to each potential growth strategy or combination.
