What is Buyer?

Legal Definition
A buyer is any person who contracts to acquire an asset in return for some form of consideration.

When someone gets characterized by their role as a buyer of certain assets, the term "buyer" gets new meaning. For example, a "buyer" is a person who purchases finished goods, typically for resale, for a firm, government, or organization. (A person who purchases material used to make goods is sometimes called a purchasing agent.) In product management, the buyer is the entity that decides to obtain the product. A buyer's primary responsibility is obtaining the highest quality goods at the lowest cost. This usually requires research, writing requests for bids, proposals or quotes, and evaluating information received.
