Bucking the trend from previous economic downturns, IP filings remained strong during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 and soared in 2021, WIPO’s World Intellectual Property Indicators (WIPI) report showed.

The estimated 11 million trademark registrations recorded worldwide in 2021 represents a considerable increase of 28.4%, or 2.4 million more registrations, compared to the previous year

“The latest WIPI data show continued and sustained growth in IP filings, driven largely by increases from Asia, with other regions also trending mostly upward,”said WIPO Director General Daren Tang.  

China’s office registered trademarks in which about 7.8 million classes were specified, with that office accounting for over half (55.6%) of all trademark registration recorded in 2021. China was followed by the office of the US (490,998), the EUIPO (455,675), and the offices of the UK (383,041) and India (354,963) (figure B15). Combined, these four offices accounted for 12% of total registration activity.

In addition to China, 13 other top 20 offices in terms of registration activity saw double-digit growth in 2021, which was highest at the offices of the UK (+86.3%), Argentina (+67.7%), India (37.3%) and France (+35%).
