“According to the list, 45 percent of these 100 tech companies are headquartered in the United States. Japan and Taiwan are tied for second place with 13 companies each, followed by India with five tech leaders on the list,” Reuters said.

“By continent, North America leads with 47, followed by Asia with 38, Europe with 14 and Australia with one.”

The ranking uses a methodology that analyses 28 factors across eight key performance criteria to determine the placement of each technology company, with each having a revenue of at least $1bn.

These criteria include; management & investor confidence; legal compliance; financial performance; innovation; risk & resilience; people & social responsibility; reputation; and environmental impact.

Ecommerce giant Amazon and social media company Facebook did not place in the top 10, but both featured amongst the remaining 90 firms that were not specifically ranked.
