UK businesses fail to make global innovation list

The UK’s leading companies have failed to make a list of the top 100 global innovative businesses based on patent filings.

Cutting Edge UK firms such as ARM Holdings, BAE Systems and Jaguar Land Rover were all absent from the Thomson Reuters Top 100 Global Innovators report.

The report featured 45 American companies, including Apple, Google and Oracle; 28 Japanese, including Sony and Panasonic; and 12 French, including Alcatel Lucent and Thales.

The list, which didn’t include any UK businesses last year either, is based on the number of patents applied for, granted and applied to global markets.
