    over time

    Does "over time" mean "some time" in this sentence ?

    Over time, 3R came to understand the huge potential of this new product, and over the next few decades more than 400 varieties of Post-it products –in different colors, shapes, and sizes- have been developed.


    *
    The highlighted sentence = It took some time for the company to understand how important its new product was and how many variations were possible.
