Disruptive technology is a new technology that significantly changes the way an existing market or industry operates. Disruptive technologies are often initially met with resistance from incumbent businesses because they threaten to upend the status quo. However, over time, they can completely transform how an industry function. Some examples of disruptive technologies include personal computers, online shopping, and ride-sharing apps.

The potential of disruptive technology is often underestimated. This is because the technology itself is often misunderstood. Disruptive technology is not necessarily new or ground-breaking. Rather, it is technology that has the potential to disrupt an existing market or industry. This type of technology can be found in a number of industries, from transportation to healthcare. In many cases, disruptive technology is not initially adopted by the mainstream market. This is because it is often seen as too risky or unproven. However, over time, as the technology matures, it can gain mainstream adoption. Disruptive technology has the potential to revolutionize an industry. It can make products and services better, faster, and more affordable. In some cases, it can even create entirely new markets.

While blockchain is often associated with Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, the technology can have much broader applications. In fact, blockchain is an example of disruptive technology, which refers to a new technology that significantly changes the way that business is conducted.

Blockchain is a distributed database that allows for secure, transparent and tamper-proof transactions. The technology is particularly well-suited for financial transactions, but it can be used for a wide range of other applications as well. One of the most important features of blockchain is that it is decentralized, which means that it is not controlled by any single entity. This has a number of advantages, including increased security and transparency.

Israel has a legacy of building some of the most disruptive technologies in the world. In cybersecurity, Israel is really one of the powerhouses of disruption technology, not really a lot of countries who have that commitment to disruption, and are interested in defining those new areas, Israel is really a leader in that space.

Relevant companies, interested to learn more on disruptive technologies adopted by Israel, please contact the Trade and Economic Department at the Israeli Consulate General in Bengaluru.
