Difference Between PLC and BCG Matrix

The BCG matrix analyzes the market share and growth at the level of the entire firm (Editor: actually and more precisely at the business unit level).
The PLC deals only at product level with survival in the market.

Differences Between PLC Model and BCG Model

That's correct, because both are having a similar purpose, but the PLC focuses on product stages and the BCG Matrix analyzes market share and growth.

We may use the BCG Matrix to study the "life cycle of the business unit" whereas the PLC researches the product's life cycle. These 2 are not necessarily equivalent.
