They just want the quick profit. Corporate research does not go after breakthroughs. Govt-sponsored research, OTOH, can go after breakthroughs, because it is not driven to obtain quick profits.

The USA has become a corporate vassal, whereas the other Western nations still look to govt sponsored research.

Committees have become so important nowadays that subcommittees have to be appointed to do the work.
