Market basket analysis is a technique in data analysis that harnesses data mining to discover relationships between different data points. It is often used to deduce frequently purchased items to inform business decisions better and targeted marketing (recommendation systems). The k-means technique is a very popular data clustering technique with a wide range of applications in market segmentation and market basket analysis.
