Last week, IAM reported on the latest patent filing and grant statistics for the past year released by China's State IP Office. A few days before, US research firm IFI Claims published its list of the entities that were granted the most US patents in 2015.

I've put together an infographic that compares the grants data from the two jurisdictions side-by-side. You may or may not be surprised to see that a few of the same names feature in both rankings; that Japanese companies feature prominently in both; and that foreign applicants are perhaps more well-represented in the China list than you might expect.
