In many cases, the market may have an opening, for example, due to the failure of another company. It can be tempting to take your business into that market to fill that vacancy, but before you do, it is critical to understand why the market failed in the first place.

If the competitor failed because the economic or social conditions within the market did not support the business type, chances are good your business will struggle as well.

In short, you cannot make the decision to move into a market simply based on the perceived lost customers because of the failed competitor. You need more information to make such a decision.
