    Taiwan drops one spot to become the world's fourth-largest cumulative foreign holder at 162,732 USPTO patents.

    For 2015, Taiwan is passed by South Korea. Taiwan becomes the world's fourth-largest cumulative foreign holder of 162,732 USPTO (ie. U.S. Patent and Trademark Office) patents during the last 39 years. Essentially, Taiwan is out-innovating every other country on the planet except for the United States, Japan, Germany, and South Korea. This would explain Taiwan's ever-increasing standards of living and foreign exchange reserves.

    Patent Counts By Country, State, and Year - All Patent Types (December 2015)

    [​IMG]

    A. Taiwan's cumulative USPTO patents are clearly massive in terms of quantity. However, we have to examine the quality of the Taiwanese patents. This can be done indirectly and easily by mentioning ten large leading Taiwanese companies in diverse industries.

    1. TSMC (or Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company) is the world leader in the foundry business with 50% worldwide market share. TSMC logic chip technology is currently being mass produced at a leading-edge 16nm FinFET.

    2. Mediatek is a leading multi-billion dollar designer of systems-on-chip (SOC) for smartphones and tablets.

    3. Quanta and Compal produce 80-90% of the world's notebook computers with Taiwanese patents.

    4. AU Optronics is a leading LCD manufacturer. AU Optronics won a monstrous patent lawsuit against South Korea's LG where a U.S. Federal District Court ruled that LG infringed on four key AU Optronics patents.

    5. Epistar is a leading LED manufacturer with 1,000 LED patents.

    6. Formosa Plastics is a leading manufacturer of specialty chemicals.

    7. Taiwan is the world's fourth-largest machine tool exporter and has built a sub-micron CNC machine tool.

    8. "Delta Electronics, Inc. (Chinese: 台達電子工業股份有限公司), founded in 1971, is the world's largest provider of switching power supplies and DC brushless fans,[1] as well as a major source for power management solutions, components, visual displays, industrial automation, networking products, and renewable energy solutions. Delta Group has sales offices worldwide and manufacturing plants in Taiwan, China, Thailand, Mexico, India and Europe."

    9. "In Taiwan, which has the second-largest chip-design industry after the U.S., Novatek is a standout. Chairman Ho Tai-shung has turned it from a little spinoff of United Microelectronics (the Taiwanese chipmaker that is the world's second-largest foundry, behind only neighbor and rival Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing) into a chip-design powerhouse. Novatek, based in Taiwan's premier high-tech zone, the Hsinchu science park, is the island's dominant provider of TFT-LCD driver and controller chips, key components in the liquid crystal displays used in PC monitors and TV screens." (from BusinessWeek)

    10. "Largan is the world’s biggest designer and manufacturer of imaging lens products used in mobile devices." (from Bloomberg News)

    B. 60% of mainland Chinese high-tech exports are being conducted by Taiwanese companies. This means mainland China still relies on Taiwanese patents to expand its economy. With over 70,000 Taiwanese companies and one million Taiwanese residents, it is business as usual on mainland China.

    C. Mainland China produces its own USPTO patents that is about 3/4 of the total number of Taiwanese USPTO patents on an annual basis. With $3.2 trillion dollars in foreign exchange reserves and its own USPTO patents, China's continued industrialization is unstoppable. It's nice to have Taiwanese companies, but they are no longer indispensable.

    China has its own long list of corporate titans: Lenovo, Huawei, ZTE, PetroChina, Xiaomi, Alibaba, Baidu, SMIC, Haier, SAIC Motor, etc.

    D. Since Taiwan has a small population of 23 million people, it proves that any country with over 20 million in population has the ability to industrialize based on its own innovation and USPTO patents.

    E. However, Taiwan is a rare success story. Theoretically speaking, economics is not a zero-sum game. Thus, a developing country's economy should take off with currently undiscovered inventions. Practically speaking, it is difficult to identify a new economic sector that could produce billions of dollars in profits.

    In conclusion, the story of Taiwan serves as an interesting model for developing countries. Taiwan proved that you can bootstrap your own economy into becoming a developed country. Hence, it is interesting to keep monitoring the USPTO patents every year to see if there is a breakout country on the cusp of joining the industrialized world.

    Analysis

    In the entire world, there are only four countries (e.g. US, Japan, South Korea, and Germany) and Taiwan ahead of China in annual USPTO patents. China has left the industrialized countries of Canada, UK, France, and Italy behind.

    China has been climbing the USPTO rankings year-by-year. The number of American USPTO patents looks huge, but much of it is comprised of drugs research and medical devices. Eventually, China will compete in these categories too.

    We expect continued improvement from China with each passing year. Obviously, Huawei is growing stronger than ever. Huawei's revenue was $46.5 billion for 2014. Ericsson Telecom only had $26.4 billion.

    With an anticipated trade surplus of $700 billion this year, China can fund more research and development to generate more patents. Also, China bought a DRAM design company. We can expect future Chinese DRAM patents.

    1. Chinese USPTO patents are currently sufficient for a middle-of-the-pack industrialized country. Combined with Taiwan's USPTO patents, China is at the leading edge of industrialized countries. This is evident in China's status as the world's largest exporter of over $2 trillion in goods and the largest trade surplus nation.

    2. Standing alone, China meets the industrialized-country quantity standard for USPTO patents. Including Taiwan, China is only behind the US and Japan in annual USPTO patents.

    3. Judged on a quality standard, Huawei, ZTE, Haier, Baidu, SMIC, Spreadtrum, and many other large Chinese corporations (see China's billion-dollar companies) clearly meet the criteria of producing relevant patents that can be incorporated into expensive products.

    4. Having met the quantity and quality standards, we examine the health of China's tech companies. Using Huawei as an example, annual net profit has climbed 26% to $5.69 billion. Across the board, Chinese tech companies are registering record profits. We expect the Chinese tech boom to continue. After all, Chinese tech companies are flush with cash.

    5. The Chinese government has a hoard of $3.2 trillion in forex reserves. China Inc. is running a trade surplus of $2 billion PER DAY. This provides the Chinese government with a huge pool of cash to invest in existing and new tech enterprises.

    6. Approximately 60% of China's high-tech exports are conducted by Taiwanese companies. Does this mean that China is reliant on Taiwan's tech expertise? Not really. About one to two million Taiwanese live on the Chinese mainland. As residents of China, the Taiwanese expats are unlikely to return to Taiwan. In practice, China has already captured the Taiwanese experts and high-tech expertise.

    For example, all of Taiwan's notebook computer production has moved to China. Ostensibly, notebook computer technology falls under Taiwanese control. In reality, all of the engineers and technicians reside on mainland China. They work there on a daily basis to keep the notebook computer plants running smoothly.

    In conclusion, China is firing on all cylinders. Domestic Chinese tech companies are growing into behemoths. Huawei ($60 billion for 2015) has passed Intel ($55 billion for 2015) in revenues. Taiwanese tech companies on the mainland have already been captured. They are not going anywhere. China Inc. is reaping eye-popping profits on a gargantuan scale. I think we have passed the point of no return. China will keep developing into a monstrously sophisticated economy like the United States.

    China's Economic Miracle

    Due to ignorance, the mainstream media likes to propagate the myth of the Next China. There cannot be a Next China, because China's Economic Miracle was a unique event.

    Here is the standard version of the incredible fairy-tale story that is told. China was a poor developing country. Through low labor costs and hard work, China magically became an industrial behemoth.

    The fairy-tale is clearly wrong. China's wages have been far higher than Southeast Asia, South Asia, and Africa for decades. No one has followed in China's footsteps.

    The truth is that China (since opening up in 1978) has been part of Taiwan's economy. Taiwan's economic machine spent its trade surplus and has been building out China's economy for 38 years.

    Think of it as the Han version of America's Reconstruction, which lasted 14 years, after the Civil War. China was economically devastated and poor after paying for the Korean War (1950-1953) and the Vietnam War (1962-1976). The US waged two wars on China's border and bled China dry. This is where Taiwan steps in with all of Taiwan's wealth in capital and technology. Voila! Taiwanese Reconstruction of mainland China started in 1978.

    Thus, China's economy is a super-sized version of Taiwan's. Hence, it is not replicable. Taiwan has been running large trade surpluses for decades. Taiwan invested its huge hoard of capital into mainland China. Taiwan also possesses the world's fourth-largest cumulative foreign reservoir of USPTO patents. Obviously, Taiwan has been very successful in exporting PC motherboards, notebook computers, PC peripherals, semiconductor chips, electronics, specialty chemicals, etc.

    China was never a developing country that crawled up the ladder of industrialization. The Taiwanese engine has been pulling the Chinese economic train along for decades. It is still happening today. China will punch through the middle-income trap as if the barrier doesn't exist. Taiwan's nominal per-capita GDP is around $23,000 this year. China will keep following Taiwan up the wealth ladder. They are both using the same Han technologies and patents.

    fyi, often enough Hong Kong plays as a front-end for China. Many institutions, coporations or R&D get listed or registered there to take advantage of its free port status. Basically HK is flourishing with financial and service sectors as mainstays.

    As for Taiwan it has much catch-up to do. Merger is a shortcut to technical knowhow and Patent and Trademark >>> Taiwan's Foxconn agrees to acquire Sharp after slashing price by US$900m

    If you know, I've only copied @Martian 's text again.
    I was just trying to express that if top 10 countries have thousands of patents, who small countries can be next China's.
    BTW, news of US moves against India from 3 days and American trolling has irritated me so much.
    Will tag you in such two threads and would love in know more about your views on that. :p

    re: which "small" country would be the next China?

    Vietnam, yes Vietnam most likely with near 100mln population to have quantum leaps.

    Factors such as geography, demography and political stability aside, VN will be top beneficiary of TPP that US is strongly pushing forward. If u check TPP partners that US includes in the loop u'll find VN possibly the most potential manufacuring powerhouse. India is not in this confidant circle somehow though India is competitive on all parameters

    You aren't noticing man.
    No matter where does Vietnam reach, it isn't possible to reach level China for them at least in this century.

    Take example of India, we have finally achieved equal GDP per capita growth rate of China and it's highly unlikely go further increase as of current projections.
    Moreover, our population will start declining just after overtaking US economy in two-three decades.
    Simply, we also can't reach at level of Chinese Economy for 50-60 years.

    And FYI, we are faster and already overtaken Vietnam.

    From an economic perspective? yup, you are right but if you are talking from a military perspective, having 1:1 parity in all other indicators isn't a must. There are smaller nations who efficiently balance and sometimes even bully more powerful nations. India wasn't very powerful in 1971, we had many bhooke-nange on our strets but the way we behaved gave us an edge.

    Can we really delink organic economic growth with manmade calamities like economic sanctions and actual warfare? Such linear economic predictions should always be taken with a pinch of salt because they are based on the assumption that all players will behave rationally in the interest of mutual growth. If humanity has proved anything, it is that we have an unlimited propensity for irrational actions. If you looked at Pakistan during 1960-1980 you could have predicted that they would jump ahead of India by 2000 given their economic markers were much higher than India's. Their per capita GDP was 4X that of India. Then they discovered the great gift of Jihad. Look where they are today. Can we even imagine the prospect of an average Pakistani being 4 times richer than an average Indian even after drinking 2 bottles of the most potent country liquor? Nope.

    If you could watch it again, you'll find that India still possesses a respectable figure given it's conditions and count how many western countries are behind us which aren't even mentioned.
