Congrats to Canon. As this is top 100 tech (of any sector), being on it is a real accomplishment.

Sony, Adobe, Apple and Microsoft are on it, too. Kudos to South Korea for LG and Samsung making the cut too, though that doesn't have a lot to do with photography. It is notable that Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic are not. Panasonic more so as they make a lot of consumer electronics.

Hewlett Packard must be really good, they are on the list twice, once as HP.  Technically, they are two different companies.

Hewlett-Packard split the PC and printers business from its enterprise products and services business on November 1, 2015, resulting in two publicly traded companies: HP Inc. and Hewlett Packard Enterprise.[8] In 2017, Hewlett Packard Enterprise spun-off its Enterprises Services division as DXC Technology and its Software division to Micro Focus.

I suppose Canon could split into printers, Cameras, and Medical and have three entries.

Sony could split into Sensors, Cameras, TV Sets and Smart Phones, and still have one on the list

You missed two biggies (yuuuge) -- Movies (as in Sony Entertainment) and Playstation.
