and build new product and build their inventories , promotion spending is relatively
high to inform consumers of the new product and get them to try it

several strategies to sustain rapid market growth as long as possible ,it improves
product quality and adds new product features and models, it enters new market
segments and new distribution channels . it shifts some advertising from building
product awareness to building product conviction and purchase and its lower prices
at the right time to attract more buyers .

product will enter a maturity stage. this maturity stage is normally lasts longer than
the previous stages , and it poses strong challenges to marketing management .

shifts in consumer tastes, and increased competition, as sales and profits decline

offerings , they may drop smaller market segments and marginal trade channels, or
they may cut the promotions budget and reduce their prices further.
