We propose three categories of research :

You are developing an innovative technology whose level of maturity is variable : concept, first R&D results, prototype. Ynoe Consulting will identifie potential applications for your technology and then analyse the applications to find the best opportunities. To do so, we will have direct contacts with industrial prospects thanks to our long experience of interviewing the right contacts inside companies. Pragmatic and creative,  we will suggest the best positioning and the best arguments for our customer technology and we will adjust the offer presentation based on first prospect feedbacks. Finally, we will synthetise our analysis in a Powerpoint presentation which will present a relevant market segmentation and meaningfull tables, graphics and recommandations to enable our customer to take strategic decisions : Stop, Go, Which market segments, Technology roadmap.. ?
You have no available technology for the moment and would be interested to enter on a new market. Thus, you would like to have a comprehensive market overview that will present applications, technologies, players, competitors, trends, market forecast.  This document will give you a market analysis to understand market present situation and market trends for the future. This is the right tool to identify innovative technologies to be developed and the right entry point on the market. As for the marketing research, following a first phase of desk research, we will then contact key players to get accurate and update market information and then we will prepare a synthetic market research document.
You are looking for innovative technologies for a technical problem defined by your specifications and you would like to find the best solution and associated suppliers. Based on our technologies expertise, we will rapidly present an overview of potential technologies candidates and we will suggest the best solutions based on your specifications. Then, we will contact the suppliers who seem to have the most attractive solutions with sufficient maturity. Finally, we will do a technical and economical analysis of the solutions and of the suppliers in order to select the best candidates.
