Thanks Tim for your User Tip. Actually, Substitutors is another word / synomym for Competitors. So the graph was correct. I have now put both the terms Competitors and Substitutors in the picture to avoid future confusion.
 

 
substitutors is a better word

you need to think a step beyond now. what might be a fair substitute for what you offer? airlines don't usually consider amtrak or greyhound their competitors, per se, but they still get you from point a to point b. if the landscape changes, the substitutes may become more attractive and steal from you.
 

 
Competitors or Substitutors?

Nope, it should be "substitutors" - See Brandenburger and Nalebuff HBR article, July 1995

Actually, Brandenburger and Nalebuff use Substitutors in their original article in HBR, so the graphic is correct.
