2015 was a good year for Canon. Not only did it release the record-breaking 50MP 5Ds and 5Ds R DSLR cameras, it also broke its own record for the highest number of patents the company was granted in one year.
Canon also maintained its top spot among Japanese companies, and has marked its 30th consecutive year as a top five U.S. patent holder.
Samsung Electronics held on to 2nd place, despite the continued rumors about it shutting down its camera business.
