Canon stated that it “again ranked first among Japanese companies and third overall” in terms of US patents being awarded in 2015, noting that it “actively promotes the globalisation of its business and places great value on obtaining patents overseas”. It added that it “carefully adher[es] to a patent-filing strategy that pursues patents in essential countries and regions while taking into consideration the business strategies and technology and product trends unique to each location”.
The US market, with “its many high-tech companies and large market scale”, represents for Canon a “particularly important region in terms of business expansion and technology alliances”. The Recycler reported on Canon’s previous US patent achievements in 2014, 2013 and 2012.
