Disruptive innovation describes a process by which a product or service completely alter the market with a new technology, eventually getting all the players in the industry either to adopt this technology or to disappear. A disruptive innovation is an innovation that creates a new market and value network and eventually disrupts an existing market and value network, displacing established market leaders and alliances. The term ‘disruptive innovation’ is used  to describe innovations that create new markets by creating new categories of customers. He dose it partly by harnessing new technologies but also by developing new business models and exploiting old technologies in new ways. By contrast, sustaining innovation simply improves existing products. The Smartphone, for example, Apple iPhone, was a disruptive innovation as it completely changed the way customers used their phones and at the same time contributed to the obsolescence of the camera market, subnotebooks and mobile phones.
