European patents and patent applications - 2014 statistics

Statistics 2014 Every year the European Patent Office publishes statistics on

  • the number of European patent applications filed per technical domain and origin
  • the number of European patents granted per technical domain and origin
  • the most active patent filers

These statistics are based on extracts from EPASYS, the EPO's monitoring database. They cover both Euro-direct and Euro-PCT applications entering the regional phase.

We also provide our data as Excel spreadsheets. 

The following data is available:
