What are the Risks of a Differentiation Strategy?

What are the risks involved when using differentiation as a competitive strategy? Why?
 

 
Pitfalls of a Differentiation Strategy
Jaap de Jonge, Management Consultant, Netherlands
In my opinion, the main risks of a differentiation strategy are:
1. Differentiation is not sustained, because
1a. Competitors imitate.
1b. A base for differentiation becomes less important to buyers.
2. Cost proximity is lost (overly expensive).
3. A differentiation focuser achieves even greater differentiation in the same segment.
