Business Marketing, a discipline dedicated to the strategies, methodologies, and management processes employed by companies to advertise and sell their goods or services to other businesses, has its roots in the mid-19th century and has seen an increase in research in the past quarter-century. It’s a prevalent field of study in academia, with numerous marketing graduates beginning their professional journey in this area. Efficiency plays a crucial role in business marketing, with internal efficiency pertaining to cost-effective product creation and external efficiency focusing on successful marketing and profit optimization. Its interconnection with consumer markets underlines the fact that business markets often derive their demand[1] from consumer markets. Business marketing varies from consumer marketing in several aspects, including more direct distribution channels and a more personalized negotiation process. The tactics in this sector are fluid, underscoring the importance of robust business intelligence, thorough research, and technological utilization. The influence of business marketing is substantial, with billions being invested annually in the US alone.

Terms definitions
1. demand. Demand, a fundamental term in economics, denotes the volume of a particular good or service that buyers are prepared and capable of buying at varied prices within a specified timeframe. The price of the product, the expense of associated goods, disposable income, personal likes and dislikes, and anticipations about future costs and accessibility significantly influence it. A demand curve graphically illustrates the correlation between demand and its determinants. This notion also encompasses various forms of goods demand such as negative demand and latent demand, and strategies for their effective management. The elasticity of demand, a vital element, gauges the demand's responsiveness to price fluctuations. Finally, the structure of the market can significantly affect the demand encountered by individual companies.

Business marketing is a marketing practice of individuals or organizations (including commercial businesses, governments, and institutions). It allows them to sell products or services to other companies or organizations that resell them, use them in their products or services, or use them to support their works. It is a way to promote business and improve profit too.

Marketing can be broken down into many sections such as business-to-business marketing, business-to-consumer marketing, as well as business-to-developer marketing. However, business marketing is typically associated with business-to-business marketing.
