Yazaki Is One of Clarivate’s Top 100 Global Innovators 2024

Yazaki Corporation has been recognized by Clarivate as one of the “Top 100 Global Innovators 2024”! It was the fourth time in a row that Yazaki made it into this exclusive list − this time, the company finished on place 47.  The award is presented annually, this year on March 5. It is based on an analysis of intellectual property and patent trends using patent data held by Clarivate Analytics, a global information services company. Innovation is evaluated considering success rate (number of patent registrations per country), geographic investment (number of foreign filings), and rarity (diversity of technology).


Yazaki Corporation was selected based on a well-balanced evaluation of all elements. “We believe that Yazaki was able to receive this honor six times and for the fourth consecutive year thanks to the high evaluation of our strategic approach to intellectual property. In recent years, the momentum of technological innovation has been growing in all industries including the automotive industry”, commented Hiroaki Yamada, Executive Officer and Advanced Technology R&D Division General Manager. “Our company has a wide range of businesses, including automobile equipment and living environment equipment, and in order to accelerate innovation beyond these existing areas of business and to create new value, we will continue to promote intellectual property activities that utilize our global network.”
