Demographic status has multiple effects upon the company's activity both on short term and on long term, which supposes a continuous study of demographic forecasts. These attributes have to be used by trade companies in establishing the sizes of the potential market, in elaborating estimations regarding the evolution of products and services demands, in establishing the most a equate mixture for the respective market. Demographic attributes can provide clear indications upon the structure of the products range, upon the prices that clients are willing to pay for these products, upon their distribution ways and their best advertising actions.
