    The two sentences with same meaning? Which one is better?

    1)Blue ocean is an analogy to describe the wider, deeper potential of market space yet to be explored.

    2)Blue ocean is an analogy to describe the wider, deeper potential of market space that is not yet explored.

    '... yet to be explored' and 'that is not yet explored' mean the same to me.

    But I don't understand the rest of it.

    Where did you encounter it?

    A better title would have been '
    market space yet to be explored'.

    Just as a side note, you should write "Blue Ocean", not "Blue ocean". By capitalizing "Ocean" you are putting the reader on notice that this refers to more than the color of the ocean.
