These are the 1,000 companies that invest the most in R&D in the world

In the classification of companies that invest the most in research and development (R&D), the US and technology companies stand out. Spanish companies barely appear in the ranking of 1,000 and to find them you have to go below the 100th position.

At the top are the usual ones, such as Alphabet (Google), Microsoft, but also others such as the Chinese Huawei or the Korean Samsung. According to the National Institute of Statistics (INE), Spanish companies allocated just over 17,000 million euros to innovation last year. In total there are only 14 Spanish firms in the annual ranking of the 2,500 companies in the world that invested the most in R&D in 2020 prepared by the European Commission. the number is even smaller if the ranking of the first 1,000 is consulted.

The ranking also leaves relevant information at the national level, such as that Banco Santander, Telefónica and Amadeus are ahead; that the Catalan representation is reduced to Grifols and Almirall; that the rest are the vast majority companies based in Madrid or that Alphabet (Google’s parent company), the company that invested the most in R&D in the world last year, allocated five times more to this than all the Spanish companies that appear in the list together. Here you can see which are the first 1,000 companies that invest the most in R&D worldwide.
