Fast Growing Technologies of 2019

IFI CLAIMS has identified ten fast growing technologies based on data through the end of 2019. IFI analyzed US patent documents published for the first time. This includes published patent applications and granted patents that were published without a corresponding application (US-B1). Patent publications were grouped by Cooperative Patent Classification (CPC) codes at the group level. For example, A61P 21 which corresponds to “Drugs for disorders of the muscular or neuromuscular system”. Over 4,600 CPC groups were screened by size in 2019 and for rapid growth over the period 2014 to 2019.  The largest 2,100 categories were selected, and growth was calculated using the Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) over the five-year period. 

Using patent classification codes, we produced an interactive chart, allowing you to make your own discoveries, and a slideshare highlighting the ten fastest growing technologies.
