Top Patentees 2019

In 2019, approximately 22,000 patents were granted by the Canadian Patent Office. Halliburton Energy Services was again the top recipient of patents with over twice the patents obtained as any other applicant. The other top applicants were General Electric Company, Nissan Motor, The Boeing Company and Siemens.

According to my analysis, the owners that received the most patents in Canada in 2019 were the following:

  1. Halliburton Energy Services, Inc. (United States)
  2. General Electric Company (United States)
  3. Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. (Japan)
  4. The Boeing Company (United States)
  5. Siemens Aktiengesellschaft (Germany)
  6. Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. (China)
  7. The Procter & Gamble Company (United States)
  8. Becton, Dickinson and Company (United States)
  9. Qualcomm Incorporated (United States)
  10. SNECMA (France)
  11. Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (Korea)
  12. BlackBerry Limited (Canada)
  13. F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ag (Switzerland)
  14. ExxonMobil Upstream Research Company (United States)
  15. Amazon Technologies, Inc. (United States)
  16. Nippon Steel Corporation (Japan)
  17. Google LLC (United States)
  18. Illinois Tool Works Inc. (United States)
  19. Societe Des Produits Nestle S.A. (Switzerland)
  20. Pratt & Whitney Canada Corp. (Canada)
  21. Toyota Jidosha Kabushiki Kaisha (Japan)
  22. Ethicon Endo-Surgery, Inc. (United States)
  23. Weatherford Technology Holdings, LLC (United States)
  24. Facebook, Inc (United States)
  25. BASF SE (Germany)

I prepared similar lists for 2018, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012 and 2011. This is the second year that BlackBerry/Research In Motion was not the top recipient of Canadian granted patents and is now no longer in the top-10. IPO has published similar lists for recipients of US patents.

The above data is based on an analysis of the patent data obtained from the Canadian Intellectual Property Office. Please let me know of any errors or discrepancies.
