Patent Power Play – A Comparative Study of Top 10 Companies in 2021 and 2022

Jan 30, 2023

So far the graphical data that we’ve published was related to the patenting trends in 2022. To give you an idea of what the year before might have looked like, in terms of the patent documents published by the top 10 companies, we’ll be doing a comparative analysis of the trends in both years! To share the relevant data with you, we’ve uploaded tabular data, focusing on the companies and the count of patents for 2021 and 2022.

If we look at the data for 2021, it’s evident that Samsung takes up the lead with 70,851 documents published that year. LG (48,800) and Huawei (46,464) occupy second and third place respectively, although there’s a substantial difference in the document count in both organizations compared to Samsung.

Likewise, in 2022, once again, Samsung is the unparalleled leader of published patents, to the tune of 71,942 documents! However, while we still have LG and Huawei among the top three, their positions have changed with Huawei taking up the second position and LG relegated to third. Huawei‘s document count (46,622) has gone up a tad but LG’s (42,397) has reduced noticeably. 

To get a clearer picture of what other companies were involved in patent publication for both years and their document count, take a closer look at both tables.
