Find new opportunities in your category to inspire product development.
To remain relevant, brands need to be able to launch new products with confidence. We work with businesses to help them find gaps in the market upon which successful products can be built.
It’s crucial that the opportunity identification process is carefully executed to maximize the chances of a successful product launch. We’ll work with you to design a bespoke approach based on your unique challenges. This could involve:
- Workshop sessions with end-consumers. This helps to build a rich understanding of consumer interactions with the product category including patterns of behavior, product usage and perceived deficiencies with the current offerings.
- Usage and attitudes studies. Large-scale quantitative studies allow us to explore the category as whole, identifying consumer needs that you can meet through product development.
- Expert interviews with thought leaders in your industry. These deliver a future-focused perspective, pinpointing potential areas of growth in the sector, opportunities and whitespace.
Building on this foundation of knowledge, we can run co-creation workshops with consumers to capture and refine embryonic product ideas that relate to the white spaces identified.
We also run workshops for your internal stakeholders, designed to help you harness new opportunities and ideas and move forward in the NPD process. We’ll share key insights and work with you to identify the product ideas to be taken forward for further development and testing. Typically, our in-house creative team will also attend this session, allowing them to gather the information required to visualize the ideas for the next phase of NPD research: concept testing.
The impact opportunity identification research can have on your business:
Understand where the market is heading to find new opportunities for your brand.
Identify consumer needs that you can capitalize on
We give you an unfiltered, objective understanding of consumers needs in the category, allowing you to better meet what your customers are looking for through your new product development.
Develop winning products
As an agency with rich expertise across the NPD cycle, we can help you set your product launch up for success.
