CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1  BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY

Now Nigerian is in the age called industrial institution. New product development and nations are receiving a new and increasing basis and attention from both the government and private sector initiatives. While the federal government has set up an enthusiastically funding research institutes (PRODA) Enugu. And the federal institute of industrial research Oshodio Lagos. Marketing research is the funding that links the marketers to consumers and the public through information-it is used to identify and define marketing opportunities and problems generally refine and evaluate marketing action to monitor marketing performance and to improve understanding of the marketing process (Kotler and Armstrong 1999, p.115-116).

Increasingly, marketers are viewing information not just as an input asset and marketing better decision but also as an important asset and making tool (Glazer 1991, p.1-19). Many of the private enterprises are setting up research development (RD) departments, allin the part to turn out new product or innovations. On smaller sack, but with matching enthusiasm some brilliant students and young “Jobless” school leavers, graduates or tertiary institutions and even non-illiterate individuals have braced themselves and turned out of their ingenuity, some interesting products and innovations. All these are economic orientation that so salvage our battered economy, we must invent our own products, innovate and commercialize. Hence, the numerous new bread inventors of today.

The idea of transfer of technology which was ripe between the late seventies and early eighties has failed to work to our benefit. We have been cheated in the transfer transaction. Nineteen years after we have faithfully paid the high price, we are yet to take deliver any of appreciable package of product technology rather and we have remained net importer of practically manufactured goods from foreign nations. The high cost of our import of goods and services and the falling prices of our petroleum and commodities have forced the federal government to ban the importation of some goods and those that can still be imported are not our naira which has depreciated by over 400% in the foreign exchange. In the light of all the myriads of problems above, the only logical thing for us to do is to develop our own technology, produce our own new products, commercialize them in the country and even go a step further to export them to earn the new scarce foreign exchange. This is exactly what the governments encouraged the citizenry to do through the introduction of the former Structural Adjustment Programme (SAP). The spirit of SAP is self reliance and economic reconstruction.

1.2  STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
