Potential market

SECTION I: The product

 

1a

The innovation potential of this product is related to:

 

  • Technology-driven innovation (under the influence of the development of science – the market is not ready for the product)
  • Market-driven innovation (as a result of market surveys, the market expects the product)
  • Replacement of existing product
  • Product related to cost reduction
  • Radical new product
  • Other, what…
Replacement of anorganic copper solutions.

 

 

1b

What added value for end-users does the product hold?
• higher quality
• Better technical characteristics
• Other …
The benefit of the technology is that it can easily be applied by being mixed into irrigation water and/or the growing medium. The emergence and rapid spread of rot can be significantly reduced with the use of a biocontrol substance, thus diminishing the extent of the loss.

 

 

1c

What is the Unique Sales Proposition of the potential product?
Much better yield and quality can be achieved.

 

SECTION 2: The Market

2d

What is the current stage of the product’s market life cycle?

• Implementation, implementation in production (leading to a radically new product offers)

• Growth (rapid spread within the industry or outside it)

• maturity (parameters of the technical characteristics of manufactured products reached their maximum, higher-grade products can be manufactured on the basis of technological substitution)

The development of the technology has been completed. The next step will be the product development phase. One task involved in product development will be to obtain permits in individual potential target countries and concurrently test the most recommended forms of the substance for product distribution in terms of both storage life and usability.

 

 

2e

Strategic partnerships (existing or potential).
The university is seeking to license the patent application to spin-offs, product developers and distributors.

 

 

 

SECTION 3: The Competition

 

3a

What is the competition within your target market?
It is s segmented market, with regional markets.

 

 

 

3b

What competitive advantages will the introduction of the new product ensue?

• lower prices based on lower production costs

• product differentiation (uniqueness of the product proposal)

Product differentiation, based on the stimulated resistance.

 

 

3c

Potential products relate to the following price range:

• High price range

• Average price range

• Low price range

Medium, there is no calculation until now. The next step should be the product development.

 

 

3d

Potential products will be marketed:

• To regulated markets (e.g. heat supply, water supply, universal telecommunication services, agricultural products, fishing industry, architectural services)

• To markets operating on the principle of free negotiation between agents on the market

Free negotiation.
