The IP5 is the forum of the five largest intellectual property offices in the world (CNIPO, EPO, JPO, KIPO, USPTO). In 2021, 2.9 million patent applications were filed at the IP5 Offices and together they granted 1.5 million patents (up from 2.8 million and 1.3 million respectively in 2020).
Document CA/F 5 is published annually for the Administrative Council around mid-November. It summarises the statistics of the previous calendar year with respect to applications, grants, national validations and maintenance of European patents, as well as statistics on opposition procedures. Statistics for appeals can be found in the Annual Reports of the Boards of Appeal.
