The company has been featured on a list of the World’s 50 Most Innovative Companies.
247 Wall St. released a special report featuring a list of the World’s 50 Most Innovative Companies, compiling the list of companies according to which received the most patents.
Kyocera revealed that the company ranks at number 31, ahead of fellow OEMs HP and Xerox.
The company received 1,132 patents in 2016 and 1,144 patents in 2017.
Samuel Stebbins described how 247 Wall St. had put together its list:
“To identify the 50 most innovative companies, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed the 1,000 companies receiving the most patent grants U.S. Patent and Trademark Office grants in 2017, according to data provided by IFI Claims Patent Services. IFI produces this data based on the entity listed as holding the patent, and that entity often is a division or subsidiary of the larger company. In order to arrive at a figure that more closely reflects a company’s total, 24/7 Wall St. combined the grants awarded to a company and its subsidiaries. It is important to note that while IFI Claims Patent Services provided the data based on USPTO grants, 24/7 Wall St. aggregated the grants of multiple entities under the same parent corporation. This number is therefore an estimate as it excludes any patent-holding subsidiaries of a company that do not share the company’s name, and as it does not include companies outside of the top 1,000 patent grantees.”
