Generally, a ?Market? was the place where the buyers and sellers gather to exchange their goods. The concept of market is very important in marketing. Market is an area for potential exchanges it's a place where goods are brought and sold. It is an area where a force of supply (sellers) and demand (buyers) operates. Exchange is the heart of commerce or marketing. Exchange is possible where there are two or more parties who each have something they desire to exchange for something else. Exchange may take place with or without money as a medium of exchange money speeds trading.
