Nursing Markets

“Nursing markets may later give way to ‘bridging markets’ (Andersson and Jacobsson, 2000) that allow for volumes to increase and for the TIS to grow. Here, policy may enhance entrepreneurial opportunities and learning by enlarging a protected space. Examples of this may be the feed-in-laws in Germany and Spain or the tradable green certificate scheme  in Sweden. Finally, in a successful TIS, mass markets may evolve, often several decades after the formation of the ‘nursing’ market.”
