Samsung filed most patent applications to the European Patent Office

Munich, March 2013: For the first time Samsung and, thus, a non-European innovator filed the largest number of European patent applications. With almost 2,300 applications in 2012 Samsung took over Siemens which filed almost 2,200 patent applications. BASF is on the third rank.
The increasing filing activities by non-European applicants such as Samsung is another indicator for the further progress of globalization.
