In 2011, there were 307, 237 applications for trademark registration filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office according to the TESS online database records. In 2012, that number increased to 308,326 – a gain of less than one half of one percent. Of course, the slight increase is better than a decline, and is a reflection of a US economy that is growing slowly.

The number of registrations issued in 2012 grew more significantly:

  • Registrations issued in 2011: 179,984
  • Registrations issued in 2012: 187,545
