Price and Discount Trends

Isolate the incremental sales impact of price promotions to measure the effectiveness of past promotions by understanding incremental and base price sales of promoted versus non-promoted items – online and in-store, to determine what is driving those pricing changes. Get a granular look at product pricing at the product and sub-category levels to make strategic adjustments to price and promotion decisions with less risk and allocate investments to brands and items that will have the most impact. Available monthly or quarterly.

How it works:

Store-level POS data feeds into algorithms and models that detect discounts, identify weeks with price promotions, and estimate an expected base level of sales in each store for each week. Comparing actual sales to expected sales measures the impact of a discount of price promotion and provide further insight on whether your promotions are generating incremental sales or just subsidizing sales that would have happened anyway.

Price and Promotion Simulator

Optimize your pricing, discounting, and promotional strategies by using NPD’s scenario planning application that shows you the outcome of your pricing changes before you execute them. Understand your portfolio’s pricing risk profile to focus on those brands and items that will be the most impactful and drive share.

How it works:

Statistical models determine the relationship between sales and prices. The interactive simulator allows you to predict the possible outcomes of specific price changes and promotional actions and determine the best strategy to achieve your revenue and profit goals.
