MARKET SEGMENTATION Market segmentation is a concept in economics and marketing. A market segment is a sub-set of a market made up of people or organizations with one or more characteristics that cause them to demand similar product and/or services based on qualities of those products such as price or function. A true market segment meets all of the following criteria: it is distinct from other segments (different segments have different needs), it is homogeneous within the segment (exhibits common needs); it responds similarly to a market stimulus, and it can be reached by a market intervention. The term is also used when consumers with identical product and/or service needs are divided up into groups so they can be charged different amounts.
ECONOMIES OF SCOPE Economies of scope are changes in average costs because of changes in the mix of output between two or more products. This refers to the potential cost savings from joint production – even if the products are not directly related to each other.
