Further, overall patent-recording action got back to development in 2020 after the primary dunk in 10 years in 2019, because of a decrease in China. In 2020, China's IP office revealed development again with 1.5 million patent applications, trailed by the US, Japan, Republic of Korea and the European Patent Office. Together, these five workplaces represented 85.1% of the world aggregate. 

Among the main 10 workplaces, just three — China (6.9%), India (5.9%) and the Republic of Korea (3.6%) — recorded development in applications in 2020. Germany (62,105), India (56,771) and the Russian Federation (34,984), among others, additionally included among the best 10 workplaces.
