Design research was originally constituted as primarily research into the process of design, developing from work in design methods, but the concept has been expanded to include research embedded within the process of design, including work concerned with the context of designing and research-based design practice. The concept retains a sense of generality, aimed at understanding and improving design processes and practices quite broadly, rather than developing domain-specific knowledge within any professional field of design. The development of design research has led to the establishment of design as a coherent discipline of study in its own right, based on the view that design has its own things to know and its own ways of knowing them. Bruce Archer again encapsulated the view in stating his new belief that ‘there exists a designerly way of thinking and communicating that is both different from scientific and scholarly ways of thinking and communicating, and as powerful as scientific and scholarly methods of enquiry when applied to its own kinds of problems’. This view was developed further in a series of papers by Nigel Cross, collected as a book on 'Designerly Ways of Knowing'. Significantly, Donald Schön promoted the new view within his book The Reflective Practitioner, in which he challenged the technical rationality of Simon and sought to establish ‘an epistemology of practice implicit in the artistic, intuitive processes which practitioners bring to situations of uncertainty, instability, uniqueness and value conflict’.

Scope and Importance
It might be said that design research ‘came of age’ in the 1980s, since then there has been a continuing period of expansion in nanomaterials. This was helped by the development of a research base, including doctoral programs, within many of the design schools located within new institutions that were previously art colleges, and the emergence of new areas such as interaction design . More new journals have appeared, such as The Design Journal, the Journal of Design Research, and CoDesign. There has also been a major growth in conferences, with not only a continuing series by DRS, but also series such as Design Thinking, Doctoral Education in Design, Design Computing . and Cognition, Design and Emotion, the European Academy, the Asian Design Conferences, etc. Design research now operates on an international scale, acknowledged in the cooperation of DRS with the Asian design research societies in the founding in 2005 of the International Association of Societies of Design Research.There are several different kinds of design research methods, tools and activities. The most common methods are: Fieldwork, Co-Design and Gamestorming, Ecosystem Research, Focus Groups, Self-Reporting, Inspection and Critique, Usability Evaluation, Analytics, Inventories and Audits.
The global industrial segment is showing signs of improvement in the design and manufacturing field it is estimated for manufacturing industries had reached a value of US$514 Billion in 2015 with a annual growth of nearly 4.2%. The profit margins for this industry jumped from 13.4% to 16.4% year over year.
