SECTION 2: QUALITATIVE FACTORS

 

4 Dimension of identified target groups
An estimation of the proportion of the target market (described in Section 3) which we expect to take
Estimated  target – regulated markets (electric power system, water supply systems, chemical industry, Government & municipal institutions).

Expected market share of the company (proportion between sales and total company sales in the relevant market) is on domestic market (80 – 100%), and on  global market between 2 – 5 %.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

6 Evaluation of financial Risks for R&D result
Financial risks are negligible, because the domestic Serbian market has been already prepared for this product and it will be, most probably,  sold on the domestic market as soon as the funding is provided .

The domestic customers are Electric Power System of Serbia, water supply municipal companies, as well as , other potential customers in industrial sector which are obligated by the law to take part in funding of the A, S & W systems.

The risks which might arise from the activities taken  for penetrating the global market are much higher and the results may be dubious.
