In order to predict the way innovations will develop (or whether they will develop), it is necessary to understand the peculiarities of three types of customers who largely define the process of innovation flourishing.

Noncustomers can be regarded as one of the central powers affecting the evolvement of innovations. These are people who do not have the necessary skills to fulfill some tasks and are ready to pay for the corresponding service. Noncustomers are also people who have no money to buy some services, which makes them try to do certain actions in a way available to them. For instance, in the 1870s, a few people could use the telegraph as it was inconvenient and expensive. Writing letters or reaching people (meeting at some places, visiting them) to share information was an option available to the vast majority of people. Telephones became the products that made communication easy and comparatively affordable.

Undershot customers consume the products, but they are dissatisfied with their limitations and ready to pay more for improvements. Telephone users who needed flexibility were ready to pay for mobile phones that were rather expensive (compared to other options like CB radio).

Overshot customers consume products but are unwilling to pay extra for more features companies tend to add, trying to gain more profit. For example, some customers might dislike new versions of smartphones that are too complicated and too expensive.
