In 2013, the growth trend in the number of Israeli patents registered in the
US continued. 2013 saw 3,012 patents registered in the US by Israelis – an
impressive increase of 22%compared to 2012. Israel now claims a distinguished
third place ranking in number of patents per capita registered in the US, with
320 patents per 1 million residents, preceded only by Taiwan and Japan with
about 473 and about 409 patents per million residents, respectively. The USA
is the Israelis’ preferred location for patent registration as indicated by the
fact that in 2013, a mere 420 Israeli patents were registered in Europe, seven
times fewer than in the US. Nonetheless, even in Europe, Israel ranks notably
high, with 52 patents per 1 million residents, claiming second place among
non-European countries, preceded by Japan and followed by the US.
In 2013, 6,185 applications were filed for patent registration in Israel, a 9%
decline compared to 2012. An 8% increase was registered in the number of
patents approved in 2013, at 3,663 patents. This year saw 5,324 new Israeli
patent applications, and 784 international applications filed by Israelis in the
context of the patent authority’s operation – as of 2012 – as international
search and examining authority. It should be noted that in 2013 the trend
of improvement in the average waiting period for the examination of new
patent applications continued, with the waiting period estimated at 28 months
compared to 32.5 months last year.
The number of Israeli trademarks registered in the US in the fiscal year ended
September 30, 2013 was 462, an increase of 12% compared to the previous
fiscal year. Israel comes in 8th place in number of trademarks registered in the
US per number of residents, with 57 trademarks per one million residents.
This year as well Reinhold Cohn Group ranks first place. Ranked second place
is the Pearl Cohen Zedek Latzer Baratz Law Firm. In May 2013 Pearl Cohen
Zedek Latzer merged with Baratz & Co. Attorneys-at-Law & Notaries. Ranked
third place is Luzzatto & Luzzatto Patent Attorneys, a firm specializing in patent
registration, design, trademark, due diligence and more.
