One is giving the internal analysis or external analysis. The markets within their domestic level can be analyzed through the use of external and internal environmental factors,  especially when introducing new products. This report will give an analysis through the use of  the environmental analysis, SWORT analysis and other investigation potentials together with the marketing mix.
