Today’s huge industry relies on new goods and innovations to stay afloat, and tomorrow’s growing industries will be built on the same foundation. This market concept project is certain to increase growth in the selling of insurance services. There were five chapters in this work. The first chapter covered the study’s introduction and background, as well as the study’s goal, which was to identify two significant barriers to the effective commercialization of new goods and innovation in Nigeria. The study’s significance was also explored. Further examination of the topic was aided by the utilization of related literature. Data was gathered through the distribution of questionnaires, and the information gathered was presented in a tabular format. On the basis of the research findings, a conclusion and recommendation for additional research were drawn.
BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
Nigerians are now in the age of the industrial institution. Both government and private sector activities are giving new product development and nations a new and rising basis and attention. While the federal government has established a research institute (PRODA) in Enugu that is avidly funded. And the Oshodio Lagos Federal Institute of Industrial Research.
Marketing research is used to uncover and define marketing opportunities and challenges, modify and assess marketing activity, monitor marketing performance, and improve understanding of the marketing process (Kotler and Armstrong 1999, p.115-116). The idea of technology transfer, which was ripe between the late 1970s and the early 1980s, has failed to benefit us. In the transfer transaction, we were duped. We have yet to receive any appreciable package of product technology nineteen years after paying the hefty price, and we have remained a net importer of practically made items from foreign nations. The federal government has had to limit the importation of some items due to the high cost of our imports and the plummeting prices of our petroleum and commodities, and those that can still be imported are not our naira, which has depreciated by over 400 percent in the foreign exchange market.
STATEMENT OF PROBLEM
1. Insurer product coverage can be a concern in the sense that it will not be sold if it is not well pauafed.
2. A lack of educational foundation can lead to a bad market concept implementation.
3. In marketing, price can be an impediment in the sense that if the price is too high, the marketing strategy’s viability is jeopardized.
4. If the product isn’t well-marketed, it will have a negative impact on insurance coverage sales.
OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY
1. Determine two main roadblocks to the successful marketing of innovative products and innovations in Nigeria.
2. To identify any shortcomings (if any) in the commercialization of innovative products and technologies by Nigerian investors and innovators.
3. To recommend appropriate marketing tactics for the effective commercialization of new products and technologies in Nigeria.
4. To define the attributes and co-editors that must be met in order for a new product to be commercialized.
What kind of innovation do you employ in your sales strategy?
How do you arrange insurance coverage for your items for customers?
Is your premium pricing reasonable in comparison to the coverage supplied to customers, or is it excessive?
How did you discover that your new inventors/innovations have commercial potential?
Approximately how many times have you had to adjust your prices in the last twenty-four months?
SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY
This research is designed to serve as a guide for Nigerian investors, innovators, individuals, and corporate research organizations who would play critical roles in commercialization. This study, the researchers believe, will pique marketing’s interest in the development and effective promotion of new products and technologies.
