The Top 50 Emerging Technologies research is a comprehensive analysis of the most promising and disruptive technologies poised to impact our world in the next few years. It highlights and offers strategic guidance and actionable ideas on the hottest 50 technologies that pack maximum potential to fuel global innovation; spawn innovative products and services; and drive commercial growth. The top 50 technologies are like key beacons that will guide the strategic moves of innovation-focused organizations and professionals. While each of the top 50 technologies represents an area of intensified R&D, heightened investments, increased IP activity, and tremendous market potential, the possible convergence of several of these technologies opens up unprecedented opportunities for new revenue models and the next generation of innovative products and solutions. This is a flagship research of the TechVision group, the global emerging technology, innovation, and convergence-focused practice of Frost & Sullivan.

This research emphasizes several imminent growth opportunities of strategic imperative embedded in the following nine technology clusters - Microelectronics, Information and Communication Technologies, Health and Wellness, Medical Devices and Imaging, Sensors and Instrumentation, Chemicals and Advanced Materials, Advanced Manufacturing and Automation, Environment and Sustainability, and Energy and Utilities.

The study offers in-depth strategic analysis of 50 emerging technologies, including additive manufacturing, agile robots, wearable electronics, rapid charging, graphene, nanocoatings, commercial drones, smart haptics, 5G, XaaS, artificial intelligence, x-eluting stents, smart pills, lithium batteries, microgrids, micro irrigation, waste-to-energy, therapeutic antibodies, molecular scissors and many more.

TechVision group’s technology experts continuously gather and analyze deep-dive intelligence on several emerging and disruptive technologies through a vast network of innovators, technology developers, funders, and other players in the technology ecosystems around the globe. The technologies are spread across nine technology clusters that represent the bulk of R&D and innovation activity today. Each cluster consists of a unique group of game-changing technologies that are attracting huge investments, powering cutting-edge developments, and driving the creation of new products and services through convergence. This constant research effort spread across numerous technologies, countries, organizations, applications, and industries forms the core of the process used to generate an annual list of top 50 technologies.

This year, over 600 technologies were rated across several criteria, such as regional and industry adoption rates, global IP activity, private and public funding, global market potential, and others to create an innovation index. The top 50 technologies selected for 2016 have the power to drive unique convergence and catalyze wide-scale industry disruptions. This research will empower you with ideas and strategies to leverage disruptive technologies and innovations to drive transformational growth in your organization.
