China has benefited from a rise in research and development expenditure (as a share of GDP) and a shift from socialist economic planning to a more market driven system over the past decade. Some countries such as Germany, the UK, and most noticeably China, show a general increase in impact over the period 2005–2014. The US displays a relatively static performance.
