The Market Share Fallacy...

by T Bone    Jun 28, 2012, 6:56 PM

And Apple has huge PROFITS with much smaller market share...

Seriously....people who obsess about 'market share' are people who understand very little about business....


The key is profitability, NOT market share...it is better to have a 1% market share and be profitable than to have 99% market share and losing money...

Apple has about 5% of the computer market, and yet they are profitable.....HP has like 40% of the PC market, and yet they are losing money....who would you rather be?

Pepsi Cola is second in market share to Coke, yet they make billions in profit every year....so who cares if they aren't #1? Not the stockholders I'm sure.

Blockbuster had more than 90% market share in home video rentals, and they filed for bankruptcy...

1% of something is better than 100% of nothing....

The smartphone market is big, and getting bigger....is RIM can hold on t 5-10% market share AND be profitable they will be fine.....

You don't have to be #1 to be successful....it is NOT necessary for RIM to fail in order for Apple, Microsoft or Google to succeed...
