Definition of Boston Matrix

Boston matrix is used to allocate resources in brand marketing, product management and portfolio analysis. It shows the various business units on a graph of the market growth rate VS. market share related to competitors. The 4 categories of business are: Dogs; Question marks; Stars; Cash cows. According to their location on the graph, different units are allocated with different portion of resources.

  1. Cash Cow - A mature unit which has a large market share, growing slowly. It need little investment but generates cash which can be used in other units.
  2. Star - A unit with large market share, growing fast, requires investment to maintain its lead. A star may become a cash cow when it becomes mature if managed successfully.
  3. Question Marks - This unit has low market share compared with competitors, but it is doing business in high-growth market.
