Number of patent applications per year in Hong Kong

Hong Kong is reviewing its patent system and information disclosed are interesting. In the past 5 years, there were about 13,000 per year. The number actually declines in year 2009 and 2010. Does it reflect the local R&D are reduced in the economic downturn? Luckily we are not affected.

May be because of hard work by Hong Kong Productivity Council, we believe that the number of patent application grant is in the upward trend lately.

There was a decline in the patent application in the last two years but looking at their innovation and invention it seems that in this and the upcoming year they will get back to their original position.

Talwar: We are talking about 15% drop from 2008 to 2009. That is a big drop. It is hard to say whether the general quality of innovative work has been improved.
