Emerging Technologies

Emerging technologies are going to shape the most successful businesses of tomorrow. The question is, which
technologies will deliver the most value?

emerging technologies

Eight emerging technologies—AI, blockchain, and quantum computing among them—are poised to transform the way we work and live.

Procal works with a wide variety of clients to help them understand and seize opportunities in the emerging technologies that will transform business in the next five to ten years.

Metaverse

The metaverse is coming. Forward-looking companies are zeroing in on how its available components can transform their business right now. They're making investments—and seeing them pay off.

Quantum Computing

In the coming decades, quantum computing promises to create value of more than $450 billion annually. Where and how quantum computing will create business value and what changes are coming in the next five to ten years should be at the forefront of business leaders’ minds today.

Synthetic Biology

Synthetic biology will bring a step change in biopharma, enabling precision medicine or open new ways of treatment, especially in gene therapy. Applications of synthetic biology are also numerous in other fields, such as agriculture where it could help to address food supply to a growing population in the world.

Virtual and Augmented Reality

Commercial AR is expected to generate worldwide revenues of $48.3 billion by 2022—a compound annual growth rate of 87.1% from 2015 through 2022. Augmented reality is now being used in retail, advertising, and field services.

Blockchain

In 2018, blockchain-related venture capital funding soared to $3 billion, up from nearly $1 billion in 2017. Businesses must learn how to tap into the strategic opportunities of blockchain.

Advanced Robotics

The metaverse is coming. Forward-looking companies are zeroing in on how its available components can transform their business right now. They're making investments—and seeing them pay off.

Artificial Intelligence

The most sophisticated companies are doubling down on AI investments. Now is the time to understand where AI is heading.

Batteries

Batteries are poised to transform mobility and utilities, and battery costs are declining further and faster than projected.

We help clients find competitive advantage not just with these eight highly disruptive technologies but also in fast-evolving fields such as genetic engineering, precision medicine, 3D printing, and more.

Why we are best?

Our Early Access to Emerging Tech

Procal has strong ties with leading scientists, academics, and innovators working on tomorrow’s breakthrough technologies. We can see technology before it has developed and understand how it can create a competitive advantage for our clients. Our emerging tech consulting services include:

SCOUTING THE DEEP-TECH ECOSYSTEM

The deep-tech ecosystem is evolving quickly, and companies need to act decisively when breakthrough technologies become available. We are constantly scouting the deep-tech ecosystem and university labs for the latest technological developments.

We have an exclusive strategic partnership with Hello Tomorrow, an international nonprofit that promotes disruptive solutions built around unique, protected, or hard-to-reproduce technological and scientific advances. Through these networks, BCG and our clients gain early access to emerging technologies and to a network of more than 3,000 deep-tech startups.

COMBINING EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES

Discovering synergies among emerging technologies can propel a company into the upper echelon of digital leaders. The key is to think at the intersection of technologies.

Our research shows that quantum tunneling combined with IoT can reduce manufacturing complexity by a factor of 10 and increase data flow by a factor of 1,000.

FOCUSING ON IDEATION

The answers to profoundly difficult questions are often hidden in the “in-between” areas. We work closely with clients to achieve technological breakthroughs on challenges that used to be impossible to solve.

BCG’s creative matrix enables teams to generate a large number of ideas to address an unmet need—then test these ideas with real users.
