Term market analysis Definition: The use of the market model to examine economic phenomenon involving demand, supply, prices, and exchanges. The simplest market analysis involves identifying equilibrium price and quantity, which is the point of intersection between the demand and supply curves. Some of the more useful market analysis, however, involves comparative static analysis of shifts in either the demand or supply curves, or both curves simultaneously. Other market analysis examines the consequences of price ceilings, price floors, and taxes.
