LONDON, April 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- At this critical juncture for the technology industry, ABI Research, the leader in transformative technology innovation market intelligence, identifies 60 innovative young and reinvented companies in its annual top technology innovators report that are set to transform the technology marketplace. Rather than focus on the mega companies driving core markets, this research focuses upon those smaller—harder to see—young and reinvented companies that are enabling real, sustainable change from the margins of industry.
"While it is easy to spot the tech companies that cause disruption, the true transformative trends and companies driving those changes are harder to see," says Stuart Carlaw, Managing Partner and Chief Research Officer at ABI Research. "Our analysts assessed a great deal of companies for this report, many of which we consider to be disruptive market innovators. However, some of the groundbreaking companies will not see the fruits of their labor and will ultimately disappear as the market moves toward more sustainable and transformative trends."
Those companies featured in the research are aligned around a number of core areas where technology transformation is ripe:
The path to 5G and the future network
IoT and its digitization of the physical world
The vehicle of the future
The revolution in urban management
Mass transit for the future connected megacity
Security and privacy in the hyper connected world of the future
Augmented reality and virtual reality enhancing the enterprise workflow and consumer experience
The human machine interface
Next generation video experiences
Robotics, machine learning, artificial intelligence, and machine vision
Digitizing the human domain with wearables, hearables, usables, and expendables
Digital energy and powering the connected world
"ABI Research analysts identified the young and agile companies that should be on the radar of all market observers," concludes Carlaw. "They should be considered pioneers, market makers, threats, disruptors, acquisition targets and transformation agents. Fundamentally, they represent some of the brightest value creators operating today."
