Patent Trends in Emerging Markets

The increasing prioritisation of research and development in emerging markets is resulting in a sharp growth in the number of patents being registered among them. China had by far the highest number of patents granted at its national patent office of emerging markets at just under 257,000 in 2013, representing 72.4% of total developing market patent grants. Patents enable countries to benefit exclusively from their research and gain a competitive advantage over others.
