Despite the blockade imposed by the United States. Huawei continues to develop its technology and is the fifth company with the most patents
Huawei is known worldwide for its smartphonesHowever, the company has also developed in other technological sectors. Its presence has been such that it became the fifth company with the most patents in the United States.
According to an article by Bloomberg, the company has continued to develop its technology despite the blockade imposed by the American country.
The media highlighted that Huawei It is an important part of technological innovation worldwide. The study by Research’s IFI Claims Patent Services revealed that last year the tech giant received 2,770 US patents.
The companies that occupied the first places are: IBM with 8,682; Samsung with 6,366; Canon with 3,021; and TSMC with 2,798.
Bloomberg noted that Huawei it climbed from ninth place to fifth place. Its rise could also be related to the decrease in patents that were registered.
And it is that the United States Patent and Trademark Office granted 7 percent fewer registrations. This caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
This is a big step for HuaweiIt is a success after his “network equipment is excluded from the United States and the Joe Biden administration has prevented him from acquiring the necessary components for his telephones.”
What are the technology areas that have generated a lot of interest?
Among the fastest growing areas for innovation are artificial intelligence and machine learning. In this sector IBM, Samsung, Google, Intel and Microsoft are at the top.
The last five years have also seen an increase in patents in telemedicine and supply chain logistics.
Globally, Asian companies occupy an important place in technological innovation, Samsung remains the largest holder of patented inventions worldwide.
“Wherever you look, they seem to be establishing themselves, or seeking to establish themselves, as important players. You hear these stories that the Chinese market is going to take over the world. It’s starting to get real here, ”explained Mike Baycroft, CEO of IFI Claims.
