2012 WIPO IP Facts and Figures


The World Intellectual Property Organization’s (WIPO) 2012 IP Facts and Figures provides an overview of intellectual property (IP) activity based on the latest available year of statistics. Due to the time involved in collecting and reporting statistics to WIPO, most national and regional IP office statistics refer to 2010. This publication covers four types of industrial property – patents, utility models, trademarks and industrial designs – and serves as a quick reference guide. It therefore focuses on application data only, which is the most often used measure of IP activity. Trademark application data refer to class counts (the number of classes specified in applications) in order to better compare international trademark activity across offices. The tables and graphs presented enable a comparison of IP activity across offices and through the use of the WIPO-administered Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT), Madrid and Hague systems in 2011.
