When starting a discussion about custom new humidifiers, some quick steps can be started and replicated, and we’ll break down those steps and the highlights of new product development in this article.
What is New Product Development?
New Product Development (NPD) involves creating products that meet customer needs. The most important thing about developing a new product is to understand the problem you’re trying to solve. You need to know what your users want before you start. It includes developing a product roadmap, designing the product, building the prototype, launching the product, gathering feedback, improving the product, and continuing to develop the product.
New product development is a great way to grow your startup. You can take advantage of the knowledge and skills of your existing team and hire a team from outside the company.
6 Steps to Develop a New Product: New Humidifier or Diffuser Development
1. Idea Generation
A new product starts with ideation and brainstorming, which involves creating ideas from different sources, such as market research, competitors, and customers’ feedback.
We can find product inspiration from the list of the best-selling humidifiers, and also from the e-commerce platform of some customer reviews to find the direction of product improvement.
Creating something entirely “new” can be rewarding, but the most innovative ideas are often derived from something already in existence.
If you really can’t find the inspiration to develop and custom humidifiers, you can also contact us. We provide more than 100 finished products to help you discover the latest popular elements and help you complete brainstorming in terms of functions and appearance.
2. Designing & Prototyping
A professional 3D design drawing allows suppliers to understand your new product’s design better.
During the prototyping phase, a finished product is created as a sample for mass production. After your 3D drawings are confirmed, Nawsun can easily print humidifier or diffuser prototypes using the latest 3D printing technology.
3. Planning & Costing
This stage involves what your new humidifier will look like, how it will function, what kind of materials you will use, the design of packaging, etc.
As part of business analysis, costing is the process of taking information collected to date and determining your cost of goods sold, resulting in a retail price and gross margin.
4. Pre-Production Sample
Pre-production samples are vital to test a new design’s viability and the supplier’s production control capacity.
The importers or wholesalers need to review the pre-production sample to confirm all details. As soon as the samples have been approved, the new air humidifiers or essential oil diffusers may proceed into production.
5. Mass Production
During this stage, you will need to reconfirm the lead time, monitor the quality standards, and start contacting the freight forwarder.
You can use this time to prepare for matters related to intellectual property and product compliance certifications, such as patent applications, registered trademarks, and certifications.
6. Marketing & Launching
In the final stage, we will decide how to position it for market launch strategically.
Taking advantage of the brand’s positioning helps establish its first impression in the target audience’s minds. Therefore, it is critical to strategically position your wholesale humidifier business before launching to stand out from the competitors.
