  With the development of economy and society, the importance of intellectual property rights has gradually increased, and the quantity and quality of intellectual property rights have gradually become an important reflection of an enterprise's R&D capabilities.

   In order to implement the requirements of the “Thirteenth Five-Year Plan for National Intellectual Property Protection and Utilization Plan” on “strengthening the evaluation of the correlation between patent activities and economic benefits”, we will promote the evaluation of innovation-driven development that combines patents with industrial development. To carry out smoothly and realize the connection between patents and industry, the State Intellectual Property Office formulated the "Reference Table of International Patent Classification and National Economic Industry Classification (2018)".

   CnOpenData conducted a total of 4 categories of patent data: Industry Category, Industry Medium Category, Industry Major Category, and Industry Small Category based on the "International Patent Classification and National Economic Industry Classification Reference Table (2018)" The annual data volume statistics at gradually subdivided levels are of high reference value for internal and external analysis of intellectual property rights represented by patents in various industries.
