Small steps called innovation

New developments are sometimes "only" slight changes in the formulation. Not every new product has really been newly invented. Why should it? Researchers know about a good basic mixture. A core which is already okay and just needs to be pimped a bit for a few performances. The company target to be innovative is one of the bullet points on the portfolio presentation.

From lab to market- how fast is it?

For the presenting companies this of course makes sense, because they want to spread the information on new developments into the market. Now and again I see talks that have a quite long "conference life time" and I am asking myself if this maybe has to do with the time it takes to bring a new development from the lab to the market. If it takes some years, then you have to present pretty the same story till you have a new development. How long does it take to perform a new coatings development?
