Water & Bottle expects to be able to capture 25% of the total market in year one and 35% of the total market by year two. Additionally, Water & Bottle expects to increase overall sales by an additional 10% in year two as customers will be specifically interested in this add-on. After that, Water & Bottle expects competitors to enter this market with their version of the add-on. When looking at producing this add-on, how large of a market is Water & Bottle looking at?
