About Statistics from the Norwegian Industrial Property Office
The service provides up-to-date statistics on industrial rights in Norway. Reliable statistics help you to explore figures and trends for innovation in Norway, and are a useful tool for both the media and the business sector.
You may find answers to the following questions:
- Which branch has the highest level of patenting activity?
- Is there an increase or decrease in the number of trademark applications?
- How many applications are granted?
- Which companies have the most industrial rights in Norway?
- Which part of the world do most applications come from?
- How do the Norwegian counties compare to each other?
Where does the data come from?
The data is collected from NIPO’s database covering trademark, design and patent rights in Norway. In addition to cases that are available in the NIPO database, the Statistics Service also includes applications that are not open for public inspection.
- All Norwegian patent applications and granted patents over the last 20 years, both national applications, PCT applications and European patents validated in Norway (Norway became a member of EPO in 2008).
- All Norwegian trademark applications and granted trademarks over the last 10 years, both national applications and international applications where Norway has been designated.
- All Norwegian design applications and granted designs over the last 10 years, both national applications and international applications where Norway has been designated.
The Statistics Service provides public and free access to industrial property rights (trademarks, patents and designs) in Norway.
