Designs in SE Asia

Designs are creeping up the region's agenda as the adoption of the Hague designs filing system in SE Asia gets closer. Now the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) will conduct a study on the use of designs in 3 SE Asian countries namely: Indonesia, Philippines, and Thailand. These all show large numbers of designs in the region. Here are the ASEAN published details for the major emerging markets in SE Asia.

The key point to note is that in most SE Asia countries the proportion of local applicants is higher for designs than for other types of IP. More local designers use the filing systems than say for patents. This justifies a focus on this type of IP in the region.
