Despite the media attention surrounding the patent filings of the likes of Apple, Google and Amazon – the companies considered to be leading innovators – it is in fact Samsung Electronics (5,837 patents) that comes in second behind IBM, followed by Canon (3,285 patents), Intel (3,023 patents) and LG (2,701 patents).

These firms spearheaded a record year for patent grants in 2017, with over 320,000 having been secured according to information from the Patent & Trademark Office – a 5.2% increase on 2016’s figures.

In terms of greatest change in the number of patent grants, automotive companies Toyota and Ford led the way with a 36% and 24% increase respectively, reflecting the increase competition surrounding technology innovation within the industry, driven by the emergence of the autonomous and electric vehicle markets.
