  1. Product

    In marketing, a product is anything that can be offered to a market that might satisfy a want or need. In retailing, products are called merchandise. In manufacturing, products are bought as raw materials and sold as finished goods. Commodities are usually raw materials such as metals and agricultural products, but a commodity can also be anything widely available in the open market. In project management, products are the formal definition of the project deliverables that make up or contribute to delivering the objectives of the project. In insurance, the policies are considered products offered for sale by the insurance company that created the contract. In economics and commerce, products belong to a broader category of goods. The economic meaning of product was first used by political economist Adam Smith. A related concept is subproduct, a secondary but useful result of a production process. Dangerous products, particularly physical ones, that cause injuries to consumers or bystanders may be subject to product liability.

Examples of product in a Sentence

  1. Mike Kisch:

    If you believe you’re serving a higher purpose—that people will benefit from your work or product—that allows you to make it through the bad times that come with a startup, if you’re investing multiple years of your life, the goal has to be bigger than bringing a product to market.

  2. Robert Myers:

    Sarkis Izmirlian said in a statement. According to the bankruptcy filing, Baha Mar Ltd sent teams to Beijing three times over the last two months in attempts to salvage an agreement. The bankruptcy filing represents the latest setback for China State Construction, which was banned from participating in World Bank-funded projects for six years starting in January 2009, after the multilateral agency found that China State Construction had colluded in rigging bids for a Philippines road project. According to the bankruptcy filing, China State Construction claims that Baha Mar Ltd has withheld $ 140 million in funds it is owed, an assertion Baha Mar disputes. The Export-Import Bank of China, according to the filing, has refused to release approximately $ 112 million remaining in the $ 2.45 billion loan China Export-Import Bank extended for the project. The Bahamas, a country of about 353,000 people, has an economy heavily dependent on tourism, and Baha Mar Ltd was expected to create 5,000 new jobs when fully operational. The resort's projected annual payroll of $ 130 million would represent about 12 percent of the country's gross domestic product, the developer said in its court filing. It's an absolute disaster.

  4. Scott Pinsker:

    All brands evolve over time, and the Donald Trump brand is no different. The good news for Ivanka is that Donald Trump is such a singular, distinct presence. Donald Trump’s almost a standalone product. With a few well-times, well-positioned interviews after Election Day, Ivanka can certainly reestablish her brand identity.

  5. RAMANA PEMMARAJU:

    Complexity is a product of unawareness and simplicity a result of awareness! Uncomplex yourself, Live Life!
