What is a Funnel Chart?

The name of the Funnel chart came because of its funnel (a pipeline) like shape. Data is represented in various stages. It shows a progressive reduction of the data as it passes from one phase to another, i.e., the number of data in the first stage is highest and decreases as it moves to the next step.

These graphs are mainly used by the marketing and sales teams to track the growth or deficit records. It describes a sales funnel that measures the number of customers at each stage in the sales pipeline.

Example: A sales team of the loss-making company shows the total contribution of sales in the first 3 quarters as

Quarter ( 3months) Sales (%)
First 50 %
Second 30 %
Third 20 %
