ETP.jpgThe TechVision Emerging Technologies Service is the premier service of the TechVision group, the global emerging technology, innovation, and convergence-focused research practice of Frost & Sullivan. The various elements and core values of this service are based on a highly selective collection of emerging and disruptive technologies and innovations that are likely to shape our world in the near future. In essence, the TechVision Emerging Technologies Service embodies the latest in emerging technologies and offers extraordinary strategic growth channels and opportunities to its users. This body of work symbolizes thousands of hours of continuous effort put in by a team of global technology experts focused in multiple technology domains.

The TechVision Emerging Technologies Service offers a suite of strategic choices ranging from a continuous flow of forward-looking intelligence on emerging technologies and new age innovations that are stimulating several industries, global trends, and economies; interactivity with technology and industry experts; bespoke strategy consulting on technology roadmaps and IP landscapes; to executive workshops for innovation and R&D leadership teams.

Innovation is a critical strategic imperative for most organizations and the key to innovation is in knowing what customers will need in the future. The cornerstone feature of this program is an annual selection of 50 hottest technologies that pack maximum potential to fuel global innovation; spawn innovative products, services; and drive commercial growth. These top technologies are key beacons that will guide the strategic moves of innovation-focused organizations in the near future.

TechVision group’s technology experts continuously gather and analyse deep-dive intelligence on several emerging and disruptive technologies through a network of innovators, technology developers, funders, and other players of 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 contains a unique group of game-changing technologies that are attracting huge investments, promising 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.

While each of the top 50 technologies represent 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 next generation of innovative product and solutions. Over 100 potential convergence scenarios were simulated this year where two or more technologies could potentially converge to disrupt, collapse, and transform the status quo.

In a nutshell, the TechVision Emerging Technologies Service empowers you with ideas and strategies to leverage disruptive technologies and innovations to drive transformational growth of your organization.
