Awapatent top filer in Sweden

Awapatent tops the list for the number of international patent filings in Sweden, according to the Annual PCT report from MIP (Managing Intellectual Property).

Between 2014 and 2017, the firm filed a total of 742 applications – almost twice as many as the first runner up on the list with a number amounting to 413 filings.

In 2016, Awapatent’s number of filings (254) amounted to more than its two main competitors’ filings put together (206).

MIP’s statistics are based on the total number of WIPO’s (World Intellectual Property Organisation) international PCT (Patent Cooperation Treaty) applications filed between January 2014 and December 2016 combined with MIP’s own IP Stars rankings to identify firms of interest.
