Comments for Market Delineation


I am confused, isn't market Delineation same as segmentation?

Hey, Leni! As defined in the glossary, market delineation is a process used to determine the geographical extent of the demand for a specific property. For example, the construction of a new shopping center is more likely to draw shoppers from three counties around the area, and this represents the market delineation. On the other hand, Market segmentation is the process of dividing the market and place potential customers into groups. Market delineation determines the reach of a certain business through geographic measurements while segmentation classifies potential buyers into groups. Using the same example with the new shopping center, a market segmentation would determine the average age of the shoppers, or determine which groups are more inclined to come to the shopping center based on social status.
