R&D Spending Trends: More Innovation On The Horizon!

According to the R&D Magazine 2017 Survey for the 2018 Global Funding Forecast (GFF), $553 billion will be spent on R&D in the U.S. this year—more than a half-trillion dollars. 


This is the 4th straight year of 3% +/- growth in R&D Spending.  With the positive outlook predicted the next several years, this stretch may run 7-8 years.  The last time this happened was the 1990s, and it led to the technology boom of the late 1990s.  Exciting times ahead!

An Uptrend in U.S. R&D Spending: Possible Breakthrough Period Ahead

R&D spending is a complex subject. Considerations must be made regarding whether money goes toward basic research, applied research, advanced development, or product development, as well as how much money is spent each year. It also matters in which sectors that money is spent.

Funding must also be maintained continuously, as few technologies and products go from start to finish within a year. It matters if the money is spent to increase a competency, or to start one. Then, one must wait five to eight years to calculate the results.

These matters apply from a company view, a sector view, a country view, and a global view. Each domain has largely the same set of challenges and considerations.

Everyone generally agrees on two things. First, reductions in spending for multi-year periods have lasting consequences. Second, year-to-year up and down fluctuations have tangible implications. The effect is the same in corporations as it is for the venture capital (VC)-funded "maker" community. If VC funds dry up for extended periods, countries see a decline in start-ups, then IPOs, then Unicorns. So, R&D trends in spending matter quite a bit.

R&D Spending Level: What is your Research Quotient?

Determining how much to spend each year on R&D and product development is an issue that has plagued management for decades.

In last month’s column, a number of traditional methods used by R&D leaders to determine R&D spending levels were discussed. This month, we examine an approach that is barely five years old.

R&D Spending Level: What Is the Right Amount?

Determining how much to spend on R&D and product development each year is an issue that has plagued management for decades. It is a difficult question.

One of the big challenges has been tying R&D spending to results. Projects are funded, development occurs, products are launched, and commercialization ensues. Years pass before the data is in place to tie spending to results. Companies have tens to hundreds of projects going on at the same time. The relationship between spending and results is unknown, so many executives modulate R&D spending to mitigate variations elsewhere in the business without knowing the effect on R&D over time.
