Daikin Industries, Ltd. announces its selection among the “Clarivate Top 100 Global Innovators 2024” as determined by Clarivate Plc (headquarters: London, United Kingdom), a global information services provider. Since 2012, Clarivate has been analyzing patent data to identify the world’s top 100 innovative companies and research institutions and has honored these outstanding companies with this award for the past 13 years. This honor marks Daikin's ninth reception, following the 2021 award.

Leveraging its extensive proprietary patent data, Clarivate analyzes intellectual property trends and evaluates companies and research institutions worldwide for its prestigious list of “Clarivate Top 100 Global Innovators.” Eligible companies are chosen based on the criteria of the number of innovations filed since 2000 and granted within a five-year timeframe. The top 100 companies are selected according to their scores on metrics including Influence, Success, Investment, and Rarity.

To strategically promote intellectual property activities, Daikin establishes and reinforces intellectual property portfolios that contribute to our business in cooperation with the R&D and Sales Departments. It shares IP information and the results of market trend analyses with the R&D and Sales Departments as well as top management for use in the development of IP strategies. Furthermore, the company also expands IP landscape activities for the establishment of business and IP strategies through backcasting. To disseminate such activities at overseas bases, Daikin promotes the establishment of the IP Operation System at individual bases as well as improvement and reinforcement of global intellectual property portfolios.

Daikin is working to strengthen R&D on a global scale to achieve the growth strategies in its strategic management plan “Fusion 25”: Challenge to Achieve Carbon Neutrality, Promotion of Solutions Business Connected with Customers, and Creation of Value with Air. In addition to the acquisition of intellectual property rights and prevention of infringement of other companies’ intellectual property rights, Daikin will continue to contribute to its business through the creation of intellectual properties by partnerships with the industry and academia, and establishing a network of other companies and researchers through the granting of free access to its patented technologies.
