The Ansoff matrix recognises that in order to grow a business has to consider both its markets and products. The combination of existing and new products and markets provides different marketing opportunities. Market Penetration The Coca-Cola Company lies in this position at the market penetration because they concentrate their activities on those areas where they have established a competitive advantage and focus their attention on maintaining their market share. Product Development New product development can be risky and expensive and it requires insight to make a decision about whether to go ahead with it or not.
