Definition Edit

Commercialization is the

the attempt to profit from innovation through the sale or use of new products, processes, and services.[2]

Overview Edit

"The term is usually used with regard to a specific technology (e.g., 'commercializing high-temperature superconductivity') to denote the process of incorporating the technology into a particular product, process, or service to be offered in the marketplace The term commercialization therefore emphasizes such activities as product/process development, manufacturing, and marketing, as well as the research that supports them, More than invention or innovation, commercialization is driven by firms’ expectations that they can gain a competitive advantage in the marketplace for a particular product, process, or service."[3]
