Definition (3):

The competitive analysis grid provides the most meaningful information to determine the position of your business as well as of your competitors and helps you to point out the strengths and weaknesses of every competitor for comparison and analysis.

After completing analysis for your business’s competitors, you can identify the reasons for the success of your competitors like why do customers buy from their company? Some probable reasons include they don’t have any nearby competitors, lower prices than their competitors, wider variation of products, providing different services, or marketing and branding appealing the target market.
