With technological innovation in hyperdrive, businesses are working harder than ever to hold on to their valuable ideas. To do this, companies are constantly filing patents in the United States. The United States has the largest consumer market in the world and top-notch intellectual property protections. Because of this, companies from all over the world come to the United States with their most innovative ideas. For the copier industry, patents are a massive aspect of their business. Kyocera, Ricoh, and Xerox all have their hands in many technological industries. This consistently makes them some of the most innovative companies year after year.
As shown in this USA Today article, Kyocera ranks with the tech giants in acquiring patents at number 31. In 2017, Kyocera was granted 1,144 patents in the United States. This ranks Kyocera one spot behind Ricoh and two above Xerox. For Kyocera, this is an increase of 12 patents granted from 2016. Not only is Kyocera keeping pace with last year, but they are going above and beyond, showing growth.
