A sales trend analysis is a document that is prepared to study and review the various sales figures and facts that measure the sale of a particular product or brand during a specified span of time. The analysis may be performed on a weekly, monthly, quarterly, half-yearly or annual basis, but the basic purpose and structure for measuring sales trends remain intact, that is, they depend on similar factors.
