These match the previous patterns noted. Indonesia files the fewest patents of any G20 nation by a vast margin and sadly this doesn't seem to be rising. IP Komodo was surprised by the 4 from Myanmar until he saw that they were from the 1990s!

  1. Dear IP Komodo, thank you for this analysis and your blog.
    There seems to be a contradiction between the title of this post (patent filings) and the data presented (patent grants), which makes the interpretation confusing.
    Does your data show patent filings or patent grant ? I would think that the patent filings would be a better reflection of the recent R&D activities in the SEA region.
