Growth Share

High Level Design

Overview

Relative market share indexes a firm’s or a brand’s market share against that of its leading competitor. For example, if a company sells one out of every four computers, it has a 25 percent market share in computers. The relative market share measures the company’s market share compared with the percentage of the market it does not control. According to studies, relative market shares of 33 percent or larger are considered strong.

Goals

Assess a firm or a brand’s success and its position in the market.

Objectives

  • Benchmark a firm’s or a brand’s share against that of its largest competitor
  • Produce a Growth–share matrix to “map” the organization’s product (or service) strengths and weaknesses in terms of current profitability, as well as likely cash-flows.
