Number of Patent Applications Worldwide Declined in 2019 for First Time in 10 Years

On December 7, 2020, the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) reported that the number of patent applications in 2019 was 3.22 million, down 3.0% from the previous year, in the annual report "World Intellectual Property Indicators 2020". The number of patent applications worldwide declined for the first time in 10 years after 2009 during the financial crisis.

Such decline occurred because the number of patent applications in China declined by 9.2% from the previous year to 1.4 million. The number of patent applications in China was the largest in the world, and China accounted for 43.4% of all patent applications worldwide in 2019.

WIPO points out that the decline in the number of Chinese patent applications "reflects the trend toward tighter regulation on domestic applications in China for improving the quality of patents".
