  • 1. Types of Market BTEC Business
  • 2. What are Markets?
    • A market is where buyers and sellers:
    • meet to exchange goods and services
    • usually in exchange for money
    • The market may be in one specific place
    • or
    • not exist physically at all
  • 3. An Invisible Market?
    • Markets can exist:
    • over telephone lines
    • online
    • in emails
    • As long as what happens involves buyers and sellers in a business transaction
  • 4. Consumer Markets
    • You should be familiar with these:
    • consumers interact with sellers to buy goods and services
    • sellers can be retailers using high street shops or out-of-town stores
    • sellers can use other sales media
  • 5. New Ideas for Selling to Consumers
    • Alternatives to conventional retailing:
    • Mail order (including catalogue shopping)
    • Online, Web-based selling (‘e-tailing’)
    • Direct producer-to-consumer selling
  • 6. Industrial Markets
    • The business world’s equivalent of consumer markets:
    • business organisations sell to other businesses
    • not to a final consumer
    • these other businesses use what they’ve bought to make new products

    • Goods traded on commodity markets include:
    • coffee
    • cocoa
    • oil
    • precious metals

  • 9. Rich and Poor?
    • Commodity markets often have their centres in developed countries (UK, USA, Netherlands)
    • The commodities themselves often originate in the developing world (Latin America, sub-Saharan Africa)
  • 10. Impact on Rich and Poor?

    • falling prices for coffee, cocoa, copper and so on cause poverty for many in developing world
  • 11. Capital Markets
    • Businesses need capital in order to operate:
    • small firms may borrow or sell shares to family and friends
    • larger companies use the stock market to sell shares
    • this is known as ‘equity’ capital
  • 12. Other Capital Sources
    • Borrowing on the ‘bond’ markets. Used by Leeds Utd FC to finance their ambitions
