Fast Growing Technologies of 2021

IFI CLAIMS has identified the Top 10 Fastest Growing Technologies based on US patent applications. This report provides insight into rapidly growing patent classifications and the companies investing within those areas.

Patent publications were grouped by Cooperative Patent Classification (CPC) codes and the largest 3,376 categories were selected. Growth was calculated using the Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) over a five-year period (2017-2021).

Using patent classification codes, we produced an interactive chart, allowing you to make your own discoveries, and a slide show (below) highlighting the ten fastest growing technologies. Click the arrow on the right to begin the slide show.
