Superconductivity is the absence of electrical resistance in certain materials at very low temperatures. It has been 100 years since the initial discovery of superconductivity in 1911. Since then, only one, major commercial application of superconductivity has developed: Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) in the 1980s. Even so, MRI along with other superconductor applications has developed into a global market worth billions.

The superconductor industry has gone through six eras in the last 100 years and has just entered a new one-the 7th. Major improvements in technology and applications are expected to bring a renaissance of superconductivity during the next 10–15 years. This will be based not on incremental progress in the existing technologies like MRI and HTS (high temperature superconductors), but rather on a radical breakthrough in a different, highly attractive and rapidly growing industry, possibly power, clean energy, electronics, communications, transportation, defense, space and beyond.

Due to this rapid growth and major changes in technology, the superconductivity industry landscape will undergo a profound change, bringing huge increases in demand, profits in the billions of US dollars, and competitive upheaval.
