India Ranks 20 in Patents Ranking

In both WIPO and PTO ranking India ranks lowly on 20th rank. Asia corners almost 1/3 rd of Science and Technology patents with even small countries like Taiwan, South Korea and Japan doing much better than India cornering a quarter of all patents put together. Taiwan is ranked 4rth in PTO rankings, South Korea 5th and Japan is second. US leads both the lists.

So India may do well by improving its Patents research and enter the league of the likes of Germany, France , Italy et al. PTO ranked China at a lowly 15th spot still doing better than India.
