In this report we have analyzed worldwide patent filings across different patenting authorities. We have considered only published patent applications up to June 2015 for analysis purpose. These applications include Design applications, Plant, Utility Model.For analysis purpose we believe most filing data till mid-2013 is complete since recent filing data is usually not available for some countries and there is always a time lag until a patent application gets published.
Based on analysis done in this report we can see that the emerging economies have not only proved highly competitive in their own backyards, they are also going global themselves. Further electrical engineering and computer technology are the most preferred areas for patent protection.
All search and analysis including all charts in this report have been generated using PatSeer without the use of any other external tools.
