The EY Disruption Index™


Advancements in technology have disrupted business for centuries, driving change across existing sectors and creating new industries. And there’s no sign of this slowing down now. In fact, we expect technological advancement to continue to accelerate, with the next wave promising to be even more revolutionary.

The EY Disruption Index™ can help you make sense of this change. Each quarter, we analyse over 500,000 market events across 380 subsectors globally, to present an EY Disruption Index™ rating that reflects the speed at which disruptive technologies are being deployed through specific sectors. Our index can help companies and investors to track the rate of technological change, prompting them to ask themselves important questions, such as:

  • Which technologies are likely to disrupt our business?
  • How could this change over time?
  • How should we adapt to preserve and strengthen our competitive position into the future?
