    China companies scored the most international patents in 2019
    08 April 2020

    The World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) has released a press release, announcing that China has become the top filer of international patents in 2019. It ended the United States reign that has continued since 1978 when the Organisation was established.

    The Top 10 applicant list comprises four companies from China, and six of them were in the field of digital communication. Huawei was most active with 4,411 published patents, followed by Mitsubishi, Samsung, Qualcomm, and Oppo.

    Speaking about technology, 8.7% of all listings were in computer technology, 7.7% in digital communication, and 7% in electrical machinery. In addition to patents, there are also trademarks (also called the Madrid System) and industrial designs (the Hague system). In the first one, Huawei filed 131 separate applications, while Samsung is the top filer in the Hague system.

    The influence of Chinese-based research and technology can even be seen in patents by educational institutions. While the University of California maintained its top rank with 470 published applications, in the top five we can see three Chinese names - Tsinghua University, Shenzhen University, and South China University of Technology.

    OPPO ranks among top 5 patent applications in 2019

    THE World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) has announced the 2019 results of the international patent applications under the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) System, making OPPO the top 5 PCT filer in the rankings by company applicants with 1,927 applications

    By filing one international patent application under the PCT, which is an international treaty with more than 150 contracting states, applicants can seek protection for an invention in a large number of countries. Since the start of 2009, OPPO has been working on expanding its patent applications globally in various areas of technologies, having managed to move its WIPO international patent applications ranking from last year’s No. 17 to this year’s No. 5 after years of deep cultivation.

    By March 2020, OPPO had more than 43,000 global patent applications, with 16,000 already having been authorized. Among the total applications, about 88%, or more than 38,000, are invention-related.

    OPPO has filed more than 3,000 5G patent applications, and 1,900 AI patent applications. More than 6,100 image patents have been filed globally, among which 2,000 have been authorized. At the same time, in the area of fast charging, OPPO has filed more than 2,700 applications globally, with more than 1100 being authorized.

    Ying Feng, senior director of Intellectual Property Dept., OPPO, said “The results of the 2019 PCT international applications in which OPPO was ranked No. 5, up from last year’s No. 17, showed that the strategy of shifting our focus of patent applications effort from China to overseas since years ago is quite effective.” Feng added, “We will continue sticking to the strategy of accelerating our overseas patent effort, especially in the most important countries. We have now applied for patents in areas of 5G standard, fast charging technology, imaging, AI, IoT and other important fields.

    We’ll accelerate our effort to make breakthroughs in other areas, including chip-making, display technology, and antenna.
