A total of 2,040 patents were registered with the EPA from Austria, a rise of 2.6% from the previous year. In nominal terms, Austria ranks 13th worldwide and 9th among European countries.

However, if one assesses the number of patent applications per one million inhabitants, Austria ranks 7th of all countries applying for patents with the EPA, with a total of 234 per million. Austria is still far behind Switzerland, which leads with 892 per million people, but boasts almost double the EU average of 122.

Borealis was once again the Austrian company with the most patents filed (151), followed by Zumtobel, Tridonic and austriamicrosystems (AMS), which each filed for 50 to 60 patents.
