What is trend forecasting?

Trend forecasting is quantitative, which means that it uses specific numbers from the past. Time series data is used, meaning data that can be plotted over a period of time, typically as a graph. One example is forecasting the growth of a selected company by tracking its employee number growth in different regions, which may be revealed as a linear pattern of increasing growth.

Although trend forecasting uses sophisticated statistical methods, it does not guarantee complete certainty. Unexpected events become more likely as time passes, so the farther into the future a prediction is applied, the more unpredictable the outcomes become.

What is trend analysis?

A related concept, the term "trend analysis" is more commonly used in financial contexts. It's a technical analysis method that tries to forecast future stock market movements using recent trend data. Trend analysis, like trend forecasting, is focused on the premise that what has occurred in the past will help traders predict what will happen in the future.
