I haven't seen anything to suggest any country will come close to developing technology the way the US has been for decades....US continues its dominance.

that's among kids aged ~15. As OP is asking about the next 20 years that's very relevant.
I don't really think the performance in standardized tests necessarily allow any conclusion on this topic, especially in a field that requires creativity, critical thinking and innovation.
Singapore, HK and Macau are basically only cities and should be excluded.

I don't think any one country is going to dominate to the extent the US does at the moment, if anthing the world is becoming more global and research more international. There may indeed be more international collaboration in the future.

International scientific collaboration has become a must, says report - UNESCO

International science collaboration growing at astonishing rate - Ohio State University

Wow, very specific accurate article on the natural pathway flows to the thriving horizons surrounding these main event matters.

“Who are the most high tech countries in the World? You will be surprised! Those able to harness the power of information and communication technology are reaping ever more benefits.But in poor countries, digital poverty is holding back growth and development, leaving them further behind.

10/ Finland

Finland is highly famous for its high-tech projectsand medical prowess. The Nordic country created Nokia, which was a world leader in mobile communications for dozens of years. The Nordic entity is now focusing on biosciences, energy and ecological science and has been offering thousands of scholarships to young scientists from all over this world.

9/ China

China has often been described as the next super power. The problem is that they are already a superpower. The nation has been able to perform breathtaking achievements and complete major developments in the field of technology in the last ten years. Gunpowder and compass were first used in China. The Chinese scientists are now focusing on robotics, semiconductors, high-speed trains, supercomputers, genetics and automobiles. Additionally, they are also slowly but surely expanding their space exploration program.

8/ Canada

Canada has a highly developed technology sector.The Government of Canada strongly encourages sciences and research. The nation specializes in peaceful technologies!!! such as biotechnoloy. Canada created the wireless interact machines(Modem Router), chip less credit and debit cards and the advanced supersonic twin-engined, Avro Arrow.

7/ United Kingdom

The United Kingdom was this Planet’s first modern industrial Nation. British Scientists permitted the discovery of hydrogen. Jet engine, locomotive engine, World Wide Web(Together with CERN Science Lab near Canton Of Geneva Switzerland near Rhone-Alpes France), electric motor, incandescent light bulb and commercial electrical telegraph were all invented in the British Territory. Recently the United Kingdom specialized in military technologies include the Unmanned Combat Air Vehicle, BAE Systems Taranis. These technologies produced spectacular results on the battlefield in Iraq.

6/ Russia

The Russians launched the first expeditions to the moon(Technically Kazakhstan back then with the USSR) and were the first to explore Space.Apart from space technology in which it used to be the main leader before the Americans took the lead, Russia is an heavy producer and inventor of weapons technology and defense systems. It has one of the best high-tech defense systems. It exports defense equipment to many nations in the world. Russia’s S300, S400, S500 and ICBM long range surface-to-air missile systems are very efficient than any other in the world. Recently Russia’s deployed it’s S300 in the Middle East in Syria and was able to deter the most powerful Air Force of the Region.

5/ Germany

Germany has since centuries been a highly high-tech nation. It is famous for its results in the field of engineering. German research scientists have contributed in fields like space travel and biotechnology. R&D efforts are an integral part of the German economy. Germany’s automotive technology is outstanding with big brands like Mercedes-Benz, Audi, BMW, Volkswagen and Porsche. Germany also took the lead recently in terms of Defense Industry by producing the Dolphin submarines sold to Israel.

4/ Israel

Around 35 percent of Israel’s exports are technology-related. Israel is one among the top five in space science. It is also known for its innovations in the defense industry such as Iron Dome. Israel developed the first unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) with real-time surveillance. This amazing nation is among the few nations in the world that have modern electric car infrastructure. You will find a well-maintained network of recharging stations all over Israel. Its main achievement remaining without a doubt the legendary “Iron Dome” that blocked all missiles attacks from Gaza during the 2014′ conflict.

3/ South Korea

South Korea is the birthplace of technology companies like LG, Hyundai and Samsung. These brands are competing with global technology brands like Apple and Toyota. South Korean scientists have made significant contributions in fields like robotics. The average internet speed in South Korea is thrice that in the US.

2/ The United States

The advances in space technology have played a significant role in making the United States of America a global superpower. From the atomic bomb to landing Neil Armstrong on the Moon. Space exploration, pharmaceuticals, defense system and telecommunications have been United States’ main focus for many decades. This nation has the most powerful and technologically advanced military in the world. This nation has produced the world’s biggest technology companies like Google, Facebook, Apple, Intel, IBM and Microsoft. These technology behemoths have changed the way people live worldwide. (Although, at least 25 other countries collectively or by themselves have their own equally powerful companies).

1/Japan

Japan is well-known for its scientific research. Research scientists of Japan have made immense contributions in various fields like automobiles, electronics, machinery, earthquake engineering, optics, industrial robotics, metals and semi-conductors. Japanese researchers have won many Nobel Prizes. Japan’s particularity lay down in the fact that they achieved results in every fields: from bio-technology to robotics. Plentiful Hydrogen Fuel Cell Car Companies that are closely coinciding with Toyota, Lexus, Yamaha, Suzuki, Nissan, Honda.

China is already leading in many fields.
The US still has an edge in most fields.

In the past four or five decades the education system in the United States has deteriorated but INNOVATION and INVENTION do not always come from highly educated people.

That a point that seems lost on a lot of people. Education is of course very important and I hope the US improves its public system, but unless one knows how to capitalize on innovation, education won't go far.

The US is still importing talents from the world. Many top researchers are foreign born. Other big countries do not or cannot do that.
