MAC falls between the Hybrid and Differentiation category. To the consumers the standard of MAC cosmetics is of a high value due to the variety of products and quality. However the Price of their cosmetics is relatively low compared to other brands of that quality.
MAC has been continually expanding their business's into targeting new markets in locations such as Africa and Latin America using their existing products thus meaning they fall into Market Development.
