The Strat­egy& Global In­no­va­tion 1000 study analy­ses spend­ing at the world’s 1000 largest pub­licly listed cor­po­rate R&D spenders and is now in its 13th year

Ama­zon is the largest spender on R&D in the Global In­no­va­tion 1000 study, the first time the top spender is a high tech firm. All top four spenders are high tech com­pa­nies.

Over­all, Soft­ware & In­ter­net in­dus­try com­pa­nies con­tinue to in­crease their year-onyear R&D spend­ing, and the anal­y­sis shows that by 2018, Health­care com­pa­nies will sur­pass Com­put­ing & Elec­tron­ics to be­come the largest in­dus­try in terms of R&D spend­ing - the first time in 12 years of anal­y­sis.

Over­all, Com­put­ing & Elec­tron­ics, Health­care, and Au­to­mo­tive are the top three in­dus­try sec­tors and rep­re­sented 61.3% of global R&D spend­ing in 2017.

Al­pha­bet, Ama­zon, GE, IBM, and Mi­crosoft all in­creased their rank­ing in the 10 Most In­no­va­tive Com­pa­nies list, ac­cord­ing to a global sur­vey of R&D ex­ec­u­tives

R&D spend­ing by com­pa­nies based in China de­clined for the first time in the study, it in­creased in Ja­pan for the first time in 4 years and con­tin­ued to grow mod­er­ately in North Amer­ica.
