Profit estimation means to calculate future profit on expected sale. This is also called profit forecasting. This profit estimation is done on the trends of past accounting data. In profit estimation, we  take risk as one of important factor. So, we also adjust all risk of unexpected loss for calculating correct profit estimation.
