  8. 8. 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 star status.  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.
