A global market analysis is a tool used by potential investors or prospective and established businesses as a means for studying the global market in relation to their own interests that include investing in the market or analyzing the general global market in relation to already established investments. In order to achieve this, a global market analysis must be performed and should include the study of several factors in the global industry. Some of those factors include a comprehensive study of the structure of the market — including aspects like the scope and reach — the ease or otherwise of making profits, and the supply and demand.

An inclusion in a global market analysis is a study of the scope of the market under consideration. Such an analysis must necessarily include a detailed study of the available figures and other types of information culled from the reports of the main corporations that are in the market. Another key source of information relating to the things happening in the market include things like the results of comprehensive research and customer surveys. The governments of various countries are also a source of information during a global market analysis since most of them often publish periodic economic reports that give an indication of the behavior of the markets in those regions.

Another major consideration during a global market analysis is a study of the ease of making a profit in the global market. This kind of study will include factors like the type of demand that exists for the products or services offered by the global market, including the manner in which such a balance affects the value of goods and services. The global market analysis includes a study of the power exerted by the suppliers of raw materials and labor in the market as well as the power exerted by the group of people that constitute the consumer base. A study of the behavior of target demographics might also be included in a global market analysis since this will contribute to giving a better picture of the state of the global market.

One important consideration in the global market analysis is the type of competition that exists in the market. This analysis will include a report of how easy it is for new investors or companies to enter into the market. It will also encompass a report on the ease with which the products or services that are offered in the market can be replaced with something else.
