Companies that make semiconductors and other electronic components are collectively the most innovative industry,according Thomson Reuters, an information-services provider.

Of the 100 companies in the list, which is not ranked and relates to patent activity from 2005-2010, 40 are from America, 27 from Japan and 11 from France. No Chinese companies qualified. The report says this "underscores the fact that although China is leading the world in patent volume, quantity does not equate to influence and quality."
