Ranked among the Top 100 Global innovators

Clarivate Analytics, a global information services company (Headquarters: London, U.K.; Japan office: Minato-Ku, Tokyo) has selected Nichia Corporation (Headquarters: Anan City, Tokushima; President: Hiroyoshi Ogawa; hereafter referred to as “Nichia”) as a top 100 global innovative company (Clarivate Top 100 Global Innovators 2024).

This recognition is awarded to companies actively developing innovative products and services and securing the rights to inventions. In acknowledgement of Nichia's continued provision of new value to society, Clarivate Analytics has identified Nichia as one of the top 100 global innovators 6th times in total.

Nichia, with the goal of ensuring sustainable improvements to corporate value, is encouraged by this prestigious recognition in its quest for a strong manufacturing presence in Japan through promotion efforts related to intellectual property strategies (in conjunction with its business and research and development strategies) and continued contributions to society through the development of products with a small environmental footprint and a wide range of applications.

The Top 100 Global Innovators uses a complete comparative analysis of global invention data to assess the strength of every patented idea, using measures tied directly to their innovative power. To move from the individual idea strength to identify the organizations that create them more consistently and frequently, Clarivate sets two threshold criteria that potential candidates must meet and then adds a measure of their patented innovation output over the past five years.
