Specifically, 100% of the ten online survey participants experience some degree of price pressure on a regular basis:
- 20% say price pressure is mild, occurring 40% of the time or less
- 20% say price pressure is moderate, occurring 60% of the time
- 60% say price pressure is significant, occurring 80% of the time
Some element of price pressure is present in every sales encounter, indicated by the fact no one selected "never" as an option. However, no one felt price pressure was so extreme it dominated every selling experience.
