In September 15, 2010, WIPO released the World Intellectual
Property Indicators for 2010. According to the report, the global
financial crisis has affected the innovation activity in 2008 and
2009 and the growth data shows a slowdown. Yet China has shown
strong growth in trademark filings. While total trademark
applications worldwide fell by 0.9% in 2008, China saw 20.8%
growth. The total number of trademark registrations worldwide grew
by 7%, which China accounted for around 90% of the growth.
Further, China ranks first for the most frequently designated
through the Madrid System and tenth in the world for international
trademark applications, which has substantially shown the
importance and attractiveness of the Chinese market.
According to the latest statistics from the China Trademark
Office, the total amount of trademark applications filed with the
CTMO has exceeded 1 million in 2010, i.e. 1.003 million,
significantly increased from 2009 by 21 %.
