Marketing illustration Marketing theory

Product

A product is simply anything that can be exchanged and able to satisfy a customer’s needs. Products can be broken down into two categories:tangible andnon-tangible. Tangible products are physical goods, such as food or games consoles, whereas non-tangible products are a non-physical service, a medical examination or a download, for example.

From the above distinction there can be further differences, including producer/industrial products and consumer products; the first being used to make goods, or for services within a business, and the latter being sold on the high-street, in super markets and shopping centres.
