China Intellectual Property Index — Q3 2015

The number of granted China to U.S. patents increased 4% while the number of published China to U.S. patent applications decreased 2%.

The number of registered China to U.S. trademarks increased 45% and the number of new China to U.S. trademark applications increased 18%.

Overall the China Intellectual Property Index increased 10% from the previous quarter and 33% from the year before. All but one category of intellectual property increased. It will be interesting to see if the recent economic turmoil in the Chinese stock market will influence the Index in the future.


The China Intellectual Property Index is intended as a broad measure of intellectual property activity in the United States of America that at least partially originates from China. The Index tracks U.S. patent and trademark records that are filed by inventors, applicants and owners from the People’s Republic of China. The Index includes granted patents, published patent applications, registered  trademarks and new trademark applications that have been filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
