A report by MHI and Deloitte found nine technologies will dominate next-generation "on-demand and always-on" supply chain models.
These are: cloud computing and storage, robotics and automation, sensors and automatic identification, predictive analytics, wearable and mobile technology, 3D printing, driverless vehicles and drones, inventory and network optimisation tools and the internet of things (IoT).
More than nine in 10 respondents believed at least one of the nine technologies could be a source of competitive advantage or disruption in their industry in the next 10 years. This was up from 83 percent last year.
