The Product Life Cycle is not always Shaped like a Wave Form!
The wave form is not carved in stone. Sometimes a product (or service) that is already in its Maturity or even Decline phase can suddenly re-emerge in a growth phase. Often this is the result of a technology breakthrough or of a crisis.
Example: TVs after the flat screens were invented. Or coal during an oil crisis.
Though some people may argue that in the case of a technology breakthrough it's not the same product anymore.
