    The article studies the conflicts that arise over the creation, adoption, and deployment of disruptive technologies against the backdrop of technological change. To study the nature of the problem, rooted in the contradictions and conflicts between disruptive technologiesí creators and the environment, the following research questions are addressed:

    1.         What are the specifics of technological change, which leads to the creation of disruptive technologies?

    2.         How to define the concept of technological change through market disruptive technologies? The analysis here is focused on the types of technologies, according to their "disruptiveness", on the different interests of the stakeholders related to the creation, adoption, and deployment of disruptive technologies, on the features of the innovation process in this case and the accompanying problems.

    3.       What are the conflicts arising from the creation and introduction of disruptive technologies in the market? Specific attention is paid to the causes of conflicts and the parties involved in them. The analysis here reveals the role of the causes and ways of creating new technologies in the emergence of different types of conflicts and defines the types of conflicts arising when new products, services, business models, technologies, etc. are introduced into the market.

    The article analyses and proposes effective approaches and mechanisms (methodologies) for managing and resolving conflicts arising from the creation and introduction of disruptive technologies into the market. Algorithmic solutions are proposed to overcome conflicts arising from technological change and the continuous emergence of disruptive technologies.
