Thomson Reuters Announces Top 100 Global Innovators

The Intellectual Property & Science business of Thomson Reuters released its 2014 Top 100 Global Innovators list. This fourth annual quantitative ranking of innovation uses a series of patent-related metrics to determine which organizations from around the world to include: overall patent volume, patent grant success rate, global reach of the portfolio, and patent influence (determined by citations). The top 100 innovators generated the equivalent of $3.69 trillion in revenue in 2013, as well as increased their R&D investment by almost 17%.

Asia has the largest share of innovators for the first time, with 46 companies on the list. North America has 36 companies on the list, and Europe has 18. The fields with the most representation are the semiconductor and electronic components industry and the computer hardware industry.

“By focusing exclusively on quantitative analysis of global business’ intellectual property portfolios, we are able to identify not only what companies are inventing the most, but also how aggressively they are protecting those inventions,” says Basil Moftah, president of Thomson Reuters’ Intellectual Property & Science business.  “This list of 100 companies represents the absolute vanguard of innovation—the organizations that are driving new breakthroughs, creating new jobs and igniting the global economy. …”

Thomson Reuters’ infographic describes the list in further detail.
