This study aims to identify the trends in technology roadmapping based on the bibliometric analysis of more than two decades of references. The analysis focused on the types of publications (e.g., journal and conference), contexts of publications (e.g., international and national), and key themes (e.g., NPD and R&D) extracted into six groups of five-year interval time-periods each.The analysis on 699 references has revealed the interest on technology roadmapping was only started to increase since 1996-2000 time-periods with 38 publications, and have reached the highest peak with 305 publications in 2006-2010 time-periods.In details, both journal and conference were almost equal in numbers of publications, in which Technological Forecasting and Social Change was found to be the top journal, while IEEE is the top organizer with PICMET as the leading conference. Despite of most of the articles were written with generic titles, 12 of them have been identified written on international context (e.g., Asia Pacific and Europe), 78 on national context (e.g., China and Japan), and 14 on organizational context (e.g., Siemens and Motorola).In addition, the analysis has also found 17 key themes of studies led by ICT, innovation, and energy. Although the analysis was based on a single source of database with some limitations, future studies should pay more attention on the importance of technology roadmapping on the international context, emphasis on developing countries on the national context, focus on SME on the organizational context, and explore the applications of technology roadmapping on the non-technological themes.
