Al diseñar una intervención humanitaria y decidir si se utilizan los PTM, el análisis de mercado debe ser parte del análisis global de la respuesta. Se ha demostrado que apoyar a los mercados para que funcionen bien conduce a una recuperación más rápida y a una mayor resiliencia en zonas afectadas por desastres.
Muchas organizaciones han invertido en el desarrollo de herramientas de apoyo para el análisis de mercado y están considerando la programación basada en el mercado de forma más integral. Esto incluye intervenciones que utilizan los mercados (como las transferencias en efectivo a poblaciones afectadas), así como intervenciones que apoyan directamente a los mercados (como subvenciones condicionales a los comerciantes para recuperar su mercado y mantenerlos funcionando).
