- Industry Life Cycle Stage (or industry maturity)
- Embryonic - the birth of the market, fast growth, no or little competition, new technology and great prices
- Growth - market size increases, sales increase, some competitors appeared
- Mature - the state of stable market, customers are making repeated orders, many competitors are focused on being "different"
- Aging - market volume shrinks, competition is very aggressive and thus unaffordable, so companies are leaving the market or uniting their products and customer assets
- Competitive Position
- Dominant - happens rarely, appears in results of new product/technology coming to the market or very strong brand
- Strong - market share is strong although competitors are working aggressively
- Favorable - organization position is really strong in the limited segments of the market, need to be constantly protected
- Tenable - the company keeps strong position in small niche, specific geographic location or very focused product differences, competitors have good chances to get a chunk of this share
- Weak - the market share is declining and profitability is not enough
