For the economy as a whole, the introduction of new products is fundamental for economic growth. Process innovation without product innovation would sooner or later result in economic stagnation and in what has been called  technological unemployment . In turbulent sectors product innovation is necessary for firms to survive and grow.The book also shows that product innovation is a complex and multidimensional phenomenon.
