The main thing to remember in this section is not to provide new data, but to explain in detail data that has already been provided and to provide the support for that data.
Explain the fundamentals of the proposed business: What will your product be? Who will your customers be? Who are the owners? What do you think the future holds for your business and your industry?

Studying your market will give you insight as to how you can make your business more appealing to people. Market research is more than just noticing trends in your customers' buying habits; it's discovering what motivates your customer to buy.

It's best to discover these things before your competition.
