Product Analysts

Overview

Product analysts help companies improve their products and their customers' experience with the products and the company. They use data analysis software to research market trends and competitors' products and services, to determine areas in which their companies' products can be improved; they also identify potential new products. The job requires strong knowledge of product management and statistics, technology skills, and the ability to organize complex information into written reports. Approximately 7,000 logisticians (out of 160,000 employed in the United States) are employed in the production of durable goods, or products, and there are roughly 26,000 market research analysts (out of nearly 600,000). These jobs share some of the same tasks as those of product analysts.
