Marketing Applications
Niche Marketing
Niche Marketing:
Niche Marketing offers
a unique opportunity
to consumers or one
that has not been
offered in the past
Process of carving out
a relatively tiny part of
a market that has a
very special need not
currently being filled
Niche Marketing
Cable television channels often seek niche
audiences to appeal to specific target
groups with a common set of interests,
such as ESPN designing programming to
appeal to sports fans
Niche Marketing - Discussion
When a business sees a competitor
enjoying success with a particular
niche, often times the market can
become flooded with other companies
exploiting the same niche or another
similar niche.
Can you think of any examples?
Niche Marketing
Lululemon Athletica is a
Canadian retailer that
distributes product in
Canada and the United
States. The company
targets its branded yoga
and fitness apparel to a
niche consumer of
female athletes.
Niche Marketing
Lululemon, positioned as a high-end brand, has
enjoyed explosive growth in the past several years
(in 2012 they were named the 7th most valuable
brand in Canada. On the heels of their success,
Under Armour has introduced a new yoga line, Gap
introduced its GapBodyFit line, Forever 21 began
selling active wear and both Nordstrom and Target
expanded their store branded women’s sportswear
Niche Marketing
When Lululemon was forced to recall product in
2013 because they were see through when
stretched, Under Armour (who has been targeting
women as a key demographic for several years),
responded by featuring the tag line "We've Got You
Covered” on its Facebook page in an effort to drive
customers to its site
Niche Marketing
As the running category continues to gain steam (sales
of running shoes were up 14% in the last year), brands
like Vibram and their “five finger shoes”, Fila with
skeletoes, and Adidas with adiPURE (among others)
have carved a niche with “minimalist” running shoes,
designed to create a “barefoot” jogging experience while
still providing protection for the feet
Niche Marketing
Niche Marketing
However, not all niche markets last. For the first quarter
of 2013, sales were of the minimalist shoe were down
10% while motion control shoes were up 25% (another
niche in the running category). Said Matt Powell in an
interview on, "It appears this fad is
pretty much over."
