New product development, Rapid prototyping, Food preferences, and Low-carbohydrate diet
This article reports that analysis of new food and drink products launched in August this year against August last, seems to substantiate the widely held idea that the low carb trend is very much centered in the U.S. Its northerly neighbor Canada saw no product launches in August last year that made low carb claims, and only 24 this year. The U.S. itself however saw a surge new products making these claims, recording 209 in August 2004 against 74 twelve months previously.
New product development, Product management, Rapid prototyping, Industrial research, and Manufacturing processes
This article informs that companies often spend $2 million to $3 million on a single new product development project, and may introduce multiple new products in a single year. Marketers continually hope to fill unmet consumer needs and wants with new and innovative product offerings to a growingly cluttered marketplace. One analysis revealed that Canadians could in fact be segmented into distinct groups from the earliest adopters to those most resistant to trying new products and adapting to change.
