What is TDMI?

Technology-Driven Market Intelligence (TDMI) is a Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) growth service that provides a systematic and comprehensive approach to technology focused on market intelligence. Specifically, TDMI identifies the benefits and the market impacts related to your company's technology-based asset (e.g., idea, product process, capability) and provides the customized actionable intelligence you need.

Unlike traditional market research, TDMI directly considers the technical and market viability of your asset and characterizes the associated opportunities and barriers through a structured process of desk research and expert interviews.

TDMI can help companies:

  • Determine new market opportunities for an existing technology or product
  • Understand asset strengths to capitalize and develop.
  • Understand asset weaknesses and manage them effectively.
  • Decide how to leverage the asset if appropriate.
  • Identify and engage potential partners to help commercialize the asset in the best market spaces.
