By Product Pricing

By Product Pricing
By product is something which is produced as a result of producing something else ( the main
product). Usually, the byproducts are disposed off and have little value.
But in by product pricing, the by product has significant value and the manufacturer can gain
competitive advantage by reducing the price of the main product or recovering some of his
expenses by selling the valuable by product.
Example- when meat is processed for human consumption, the by product can be used as food
for dog/cat. So the manufacturer can sell it in market to recover some of his expenses say
transportation and storage costs.
