The most innovative companies of 2014

The Boston Consulting Group has conducted a survey of 1,500 senior innovation executives in 2014.

Three quarters of them reported that innovation is among the top three priorities for their companies. And 61 percent indicated that they are spending more on innovation this year than in 2013.

While these numbers are largely consistent with those for 2013, important differences emerge when they looked behind the averages at individual industries and countries. Notably, they saw sharp shifts in the innovation stance of specific industries, a big change in the industry mix, and a heightened priority on innovation in rapidly developing economies (RDEs).

The top 10 most innovative companies are listed below:

1. Apple

2. Google

3. Samsung

4. Microsoft

5. IBM

6. Amazon

7. Tesla Motors

8. Toyota Motor

9. Facebook

10. Sony
