Direct competitors of Logitech include Creative Technology Ltd. and Microsoft  Corporation. A direct competitor is “a competitor that fills the same buyer need you fill in the  same way you fill it.  For example, the Ford Taurus and the Toyota Camry are two products that  compete to fill buyer commuting needs in essentially the same way” [2]. Although Logitech competes with giants such as Microsoft and Apple, it holds a close  partnership with them. Logitech often promotes its products as “Optimized for Windows” and  manufactures accessories for the Apple iPod.
