Apple has been ranked as the most innovative company in the world by the Boston Consulting Group. Google and Tesla Motors follow up in second and third place, respectively. Five of the top ten companies in 2015 are nontech companies (although one, Tesla Motors, bridges a couple of sectors)—the same number as in our first survey ten years ago. On the larger list of the 50 most innovative companies, 38 (76%) are nontech companies.
The top 50 list is a global group: 29 companies from the US, 11 from Europe, and 10 from Asia. Emerging markets also make their presence felt: there are three companies from China and one from India.
