BURBERRYS
VIEW
THREAT OF SUBSTITUTES
(WEAK)
Niche alternatives to retail of ready-made clothes.
Include buying directly from manufacturers,
especially with the growth of online sales.
Homemade and
couture clothing
A significant threat to revenues
Counterfeit
clothing
Individuals live in, coupled with the need for
individual and group identity, makes luxury retail
clothing essential to consumers.
Socio-political
environment
Hence,overall threat of substitute is weak.
CONCLUSION
With a key strategy of brand extension and its very British
image Burberry soon became popular in US and Asian
markets.

Burberrys adoption of related diversification had led to its
success.

The studies also shows the strategy should be adopted in
proper times by a lot of analysis and the success criteria needs
to be analyzed before executing any strategy.



RECOMMENDATIONS
Burberry can adopt focus differentiation by providing high perceived goods
with superior quality and new designs, which justifies the premium price.

Market penetration can be done by increasing the market share or by
developing competitive advantage or by growing the total market size.

Product development can be done by appointing new young designers and adding
value to the new products by famous celebrity endorsements.

The vertical integration can be done by acquisition of the textile industries
supplying raw materials or by acquisition of rival companies like Gucci.

Methods of Joint venture/ Alliance can be used for horizontal integration by
contractual relationship with high end sports car brand for the production of its
merchandises.
