A product mix is the complete set of all products offered by a firm

together or think of as part of a group of similar products (eg. Kellogg’s ready-to-
eat cereal)
Product mix breadth represents a count of the number of product lines offered
by the firm
Product line depth equals the number of products within a product line

Increase breadth
Firms add new product lines to capture new or evolving markets to
increase sales (eg. Palm going from PDAs to mobile phones in response
