Description of Cannibalization. Explanation.




Definition Cannibalization. Description.

Cannibalization is a marketing term that refers to the decrease in sales (volume, revenue or market share) of an existing product due to the introduction of a new similar product offered by the same company. Also introducing new sales channels, such as the internet (E-Commerce), can cannibalize the existing channel sales, such as direct sales.

It has become a frequently occurring phenomena, due to the current trend of adding more and more variants of products and services for niche markets or special target groups. It is a major factor to consider in multi-channel strategies and product portfolio analysis.
