We cooperate with intellectual property (IP) offices from around the world to provide our stakeholders with up-to-date IP statistics. We also publish statistical reports on worldwide IP activity and on the use of WIPO-administered treaties in the protection of IP rights internationally. Reliable IP statistics are an important tool in understanding trends in business and technology and in the use of the IP system worldwide and across different countries.
WIPO IP Statistics Data Center is an on-line service enabling access to WIPO’s statistical data. Users can select from a wide range of indicators and view or download data according to their needs. This service is intended to be a tool for IP professionals, researchers and policymakers worldwide.
Statistical country profiles provide information on patents, utility models, trademarks and industrial designs. They cover different dimensions of IP activity, including incoming and outgoing filings, the share of filings in different technological fields, total patents in force, and the use of international IP systems by applicants.
