BCG Matrix Analysis
STARS: The trench coat is the star of Burberry´s products since it has
a large market share in a fast growing clothing segment. Indeed, there
is no other outwear clothing that has the prestige of the Trench Coat. It
generates cash, but because the market is geowing rapidly it also
requires investment like revivals to maintain its lead.
QUESTION MARK: Accessories are Burberry´s question mark.
Indeed, although it stands for 39 porcent of Burberry revenue, this
business unit has a small market shere in a high growth segment. It
requires resources to grow and come up with an ït bag¨to achieve the
CASH COW: Check accessories sush as scarces are Burberry´s cash
cows. Indeed, no other fashion brand have scarf, which is as highly
recognisable, and that is such an entry-level product in a mature, slow
growing segment. It requires Little investment and generates cash that
has been used to develop othes product lines like clothing.
DOGS: Licences products like eyewear, tablecloths and so on have a
small market share in a mature industry. Although, it doesn´t require
substantial cash, but it ties up capital that could better be deployed
elsewhere. Therefore, it should be liquidate.
