EXPLORING DISRUPTIVE INNOVATION AS A RESEARCH DOMAIN: A SCIENTOMETRIC EXAMINATION
Disruptive innovation constitutes a transformative process that reshapes entire industries through groundbreaking
advancements. Notably, within emerging enterprises, market disruption has evolved into a growth catalyst for
technology and its diverse applications. While scholarly interest in theoretical and empirical studies concerning
this realm persists, scant attention has been directed towards comprehending its underlying structural dimensions.
This article endeavours to delve into the pivotal research themes of disruptive innovation spanning the period
from 1992 to 2023. Employing bibliometric data sourced from 4212 articles within Clarivate Analytics (Web of
Science) through the keyword "Disruptive Innovation," our analysis delves into the landscape. Our research
employs a range of Scientometric analytical tools, encompassing topic mapping, overlay visualization, keyword
co-occurrence, and journal co-citation. Through these methods, our study discerns emerging trends and the
dynamic terrain of disruptive innovation. By doing so, this paper plays a pivotal role in not only identifying
prevailing trajectories but also illuminating the transformative potential of disruptive innovation. In essence, it
guides forthcoming scholars in envisioning the key areas for future exploration within the realm of disruptive
