Market penetration is a term used in the Ansoff matrix. With market penetration, as a company, you choose the strategy to enter an existing market. As a company, you are going to fight yourself into a market. The focus in market penetration in the Ansoff matrix is therefore primarily on sales and marketing. An example of a company that has opted for market penetration in the past is Microsoft, which entered the games market relatively late with its Xbox, while Sony and Nintendo were already big at it.
