"Tradition barrier relates to socio-culturally accepted norms of behavior that are regarded as “right and appropriate,” by the consumer segment. Anything that is new and does not support traditional patterns is regarded as psychologically threatening; this includes usage and adoption of innovative products and services. For example, wearing western outfits is a taboo for women in the Middle East, and as such they would never attempt to wear skirts or trousers. Another example, Kelloggs Cornflakes, found it difficult to penetrate the Indian soil, primarily because it was positioned as a quick breakfast cereal to be had in cold milk, as opposed to the traditional Indian concept of cornflakes or cereal in hot milk.
