I really don't believe government subsidies are the answer.
I believe "Government doesn't create jobs", industries or technologies.
If the product is viable and useful it will generate the sales itself.
In a free market place the best product will sell without government incentives.

Government does provide incentives for the research to create the technologies but it is temporary and if the product is viable it will stand on it's own.
