True material innovation is hard. The discovery process is complex, expensive, and technically high risk. And discovery is only the beginning: While novel materials may have compelling performance characteristics at small scale, this performance may not translate in an integrated system, let alone achieve the scale, cost, and quality requirements for market adoption.
As a result, it often takes 20 to 30 years for materials innovations to create new industries and displace incumbents on the global marketplace.
