the changing landscape of disruptive technologies: IoT, Artificial Intelligence, and Robotics

What is a Disruptive Technology?

Disruptive technology refers to a new innovation or technology that significantly alters or disrupts existing industries, markets, or business models. It often introduces a new way of doing things, challenging established practices, and displacing existing products, services, or technologies. Disruptive technologies typically offer improved performance, lower costs, increased convenience, or enhanced accessibility compared to the existing solutions in a particular industry. They can completely reshape industries, create new markets, and render traditional approaches obsolete.

One key characteristic of disruptive technologies is that they initially cater to niche markets or underserved customer segments. They may not initially meet the needs of mainstream customers or satisfy the performance requirements of established industries. However, over time, they improve rapidly, gain wider acceptance, and eventually pose a threat to existing market leaders.
