This requires the careful targeting of R&D activities to develop innovations for specific goods that can establish their own market niches within a reasonably short time. In Austria's case, R&D has been most successful in the development of industrial electronics goods, such as audio and broadcasting technology, and telecommunications equipment, and in the development of components and accessories for these product segments. Closely linking R&D activities to specific product types and their marketing objectives has also helped to develop endogenous R&D capabilities among export-oriented firms in the industrial electronics sector.

R&Dintensive industrial and component electronics goods had the best possibilities for developing export market niches, as Western Europe sought to stave off any substantial market penetration by East Asian imports. The new emphasis produced important technological benchmarks for Austria's electronics industry, such as the introduction of the first European-made 256K microchips in 1985.
