Boston Consulting Group has just unveiled its annual ranking of the 50 most innovative companies in the world. The COVID-19 pandemic has without a doubt demonstrated the importance of innovation in turbulent times.
While U.S. tech giants – Apple, followed by Alphabet, Amazon, and Microsoft – still monopolize the first couple of ranks with the context of the pandemic, several companies in the pharmaceutical sector are also included in the Top 50 this year. U.S. company Pfizer, which has developed a vaccine together with BioNTech and announced the launch of two drugs against Covid-19, has notably entered the top 10.
The survey also identified strong regional variations in the innovation readiness of companies, with China and the US in the lead.
