Reasons for new product development are varied but generally they can encompass:

  • The will to innovate 
  • Extensions to existing successful product lines
  • Changes in customers' tastes and requests 
  • The need to replace raw materials due to inappropriate consumption or regulatory response 
  • Market competition
