The '2016 Top Convergence Scenarios' is a powerful technology foresighting deliverable built on the 'Top 50 Emerging Technologies: Growth Opportunities of Strategic Imperative' research. Both outputs are offerings of the TechVision group, the global emerging technology, innovation, and convergence-focused practice of Frost & Sullivan.

This deliverable is an indigenous effort at analyzing the Top 50 emerging technologies, and the strength of interconnects between these technologies to potentially combine with each other. The impact of these probable scenarios is underlined by their capability to: address unmet application/sector/market needs create new products/services/solutions due to the uniqueness of their combined potential drive unlikely players from diverse industries to work with each other accelerate multi-billion dollar market opportunities
