Disruptive innovation has increasingly become a core subject for researchers across disciplines, from economics to engineering and technology. This is understandable as companies all over the world over are facing contemporary challenges such as intense global competition, rising market volatility, constantly changing consumer demand, and shortened product life cycles. Under these conditions, disruptive innovation and disruptive innovation-based entrepreneurship are increasingly becoming a strategic means for achieving sustainable company growth and competitiveness. Yet, limited research exists today on disruptive innovations in or by emerging economies. Therefore, this Special Issue in Journal of Engineering and Technology Management on Disruptive Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Emerging Economics is devoted to publishing original research that enriches our knowledge about the nature of disruptive innovation and entrepreneurship related with emerging economies, as well as their models, antecedents and economic, social and organizational consequences. The issue also highlights key research areas of disruptive innovation and innovation-based entrepreneurship for future scholarship, inviting more systematic research on the important areas.
