TDK Corporation has been selected as one of the Derwent Top 100 Global Innovators 2018-19 by Clarivate Analytics, formerly the Intellectual Property and Science business of Thomson Reuters.
This is the fifth time TDK has been named to the prestigious list.
To determine the world’s most innovative companies, Clarivate Analytics uses four primary criteria: overall patent volume (i.e., a minimum of 100 patents must have been granted over the most recent five-year period), a successful patent-application-to-grant ratio, global patent protection of the portfolio, especially by Chinese, European, Japanese and U.S. patent offices, and the number of citations by other organisations as evidence of patent influence.
TDK dedicates itself to continually invent superior materials, production technologies, and optimal processing techniques. It offers a comprehensive product portfolio spanning passive components, such as capacitors, inductors and piezo and protection devices, as well as customised products including sensors and energy devices. These are used in a broad spectrum of applications, including automotive and industrial electronics, communications technology and solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT).
