Competitiveness is important for business development
Manufacturers in the construction, installation and DIY industries are constantly contemplating whether their product and service portfolios are still competitive within the market. This is necessary in order to keep up with competition and with continuous developments in the market, like digitalisation, sustainability, circularity and the changing labour market. In order to stay on target and become or remain successful, there are 3 types of development trajectories for which solid research is essential.
New products & services
In this fast-changing and innovative world, there is a continuous need and room for new introductions. However, these introductions are often unsuccessful, which also applies to the installation, construction, and DIY sectors. Our product development research will help you succeed where others fail.
Additions to already existing products & services
Although current portfolios may have proven themselves to be successful, changing circumstances (internal or external) can easily lead to changing demand, making it necessary to add to the existing portfolio.
Modifications to already existing products & services
Our changing world creates situations where products & services become outdated and are in need of revitalisation. Then modifications are essential to keep customers satisfied.
One of our clients is a leading brand in construction materials in the United States. As the US market is mature and no real growth can be accomplished in this market, our client decided to enter the European market with their US product assortment. But as Europe is quite different from the US in terms of competition, growth rates, marketing and sales, our client did not know how and where to start.
