Abstract: Asymmetric models of market share response allow for specific cross-competitive effects between competitors. Various approaches have been suggested for constructing asymmetric market share models, preserving the properties of logical consistency of the popular attraction formulation, including the recent 'fully extended' attraction specification by Carpenter, Cooper, Hanssens, and Midgley (1988). It is argued that these approaches suffer from several theoretical or practical difficulties. Using the nested logit model as a source of inspiration, a simple and tractable cluster-asymmetric attraction specification for market share response is introduced, and its properties are discussed. The model is also shown to be related to the Cooper and Nakanishi (1988) approach. The specification is applied and evaluated in the context of a consumer appliance example
