We have identified eight technologies showing significant growth from 2013 to 2017. These are not the largest patent classifications, as shown in IFI's Top 50 Report, but they are the patent classifications which have shown the fastest growth over the last five years. Only technologies with over 800 published applications in 2017 were considered in order to concentrate on areas of significant activity as opposed to small niche areas.
