Here are the recent USPTO filing statistics through the first half of 2015:
New trademark application filings at the USPTO:
- First half of 2015: 183,205 new applications filed (data retrieved via TESS search on USPTO.gov on July 7, 2015]
- First half of 2014: 165,934 new applications filed (data retrieved July 8, 2014)
- [note that when searched on July 7, 2015, the USPTO database indicated 172,398 filings during that period]
The filing numbers tend to grow when more when some time has lapsed – one reason is because applications can be “split” or divided during the prosecution process and create multiple applications with the same filing date.
But when measure a weak after the mid-year last year vs. a the same time frame this year, the USPTO TESS database shows a 10.4 percent increase in the number of applications filed in 2015. This could be the largest leap in year.
