How much will it cost to get my New Product to Market?



Bringing a New Product to market is usually a complex process with many steps along the way.


Idea concept ● Market testing ● Researching IP opportunities / impediments ● Checking standards ● Proof-of-principle prototype ● Protype testing ● Initial design ● Prototyping ● User Testing ● Third-party-test-house? ● Registering IP ●  Working with a designer / manufacturing consultant ● Finding a manufacturer ● Detail design for manufacture ● Production Tooling ● Sourcing samples ● Checking the quality ● Designing and sourcing packaging ● Sourcing small batches ● Sourcing production batches ● Product liability insurance ● Product launch ● Licensing opportunities


Quite often the lone entrepreneur has a bright, innovative idea and sets out along a path to turn that bright idea into a successful product launch. Here is a warning:

  • For that successful, mature company, it is likely that bringing their next product to the market will cost more than they, with all their experience, had estimated
  • For the inexperienced developer, it is not uncommon that they hit costs for services whose existence they didn’t know but which are highly desirable / mandatory.


This workshop explores the activities involved in bringing a physical product to market (not for APPs, or services). It will advise on typical costs for each stage. It will be suitable for those contemplating their first project – or for those who have already been through the process.
