The introduction of new innovations & technologies is happening at a rapid pace and has far-reaching effects on society. Breakthroughs in innovation happen at both a technology level, but also through the introduction of new non-technical services. Such advancements can create new business models and trends that affect consumers, corporations, and even entire industries in many ways. Some industries that appear poised for major change/innovation include:

- Advanced manufacturing (with introduction of 3D printing)

- Payment technologies (introduction of payments on mobile devices)

- Clean technologies across a wide range of industries

As we look forward to 2015, it’s inevitable that more innovations, both technical and non-technical, will disrupt existing industries and possibly even create new ones.
