breakeven analysis
Breakeven Analysis

demand based
  • Pricing that is determined by how much customers are willing to pay for a product or service
  • This method results in a high price when demand is strong and a low price when demand is weak
  • May be differentiated based on considerations such as time of purchase, type of customer or distribution channel
advantages and disadvantages of demand based pricing

Potential for higher profits


Management must be able to estimate demand at different price levels, which may be difficult to do accurately

Segments must be separate enough so that those that buy at lower prices can’t sell to those who buy at higher prices

Advantages and Disadvantages of Demand-Based Pricing
competition based
  • Pricing that is determined by considering what competitors charge for the same good. Once you find out what your competition is charging, you must determine whether to charge the same, slightly more, or slightly less.
