The most successful future luxury car company will be the one that has the best technological advancements, and that company could be in a position to dominate the market if its technology is unique enough that the other companies cannot come close to replicating it.However, the luxury car market is competitive and has a lot large companies, like Toyota and Volkswagen, to compete with. These companies R&D budgets are much larger then BMW's3 (appendix 1) and are able to research a large array of projects. With BMW's limited resources, BMW will have to use the most of its research money to stay competitive. Although the larger companies have to put research into the other areas of their company, a lot of it will be in the luxury market because there is a trickle-down effect where the technology you research for your luxury car today will be used in your cheaper cars in the future. BMW has made the decision to only stay in the luxury car market, a good decision, but with that decision BMW must understand that they have competitors with big purses, and the luxury market is all about research and development. This might also affect BMW's profitability as they will have to spend more money to keep up with the other companies and it can see in appendix 1 that BMW is currently spending a high % of its revenue on R&D.Appendix 11 Leah Goldman, "Check out the 10 coolest cars of the future." http://www.businessinsider.com/luxury-cars-of-the-future-2010-10?op=12 "R&D investments" Auto Industry. http://www.autoalliance.org/auto-innovation/randd-investments3 "The top innovators and spenders" strategy& http://www.strategyand.pwc.com/global/home/what-we-think/global-innovation-1000/top-innovators-spenders
