Kuwait Sees Fastest Growth of GCC Countries in Obtaining U.S. Patents

Published December 12, 2013
A new Global Academic Innovation Network (GAIN) report shows that so far in 2013 Kuwaiti inventors achieved the country's best-ever rate of annual growth in U.S. patents, obtaining more than double the number of patents in 2013 than in 2012. Kuwait far surpasses Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar, Bahrain and Oman in its speed in implementing programs which foster innovation resulting in U.S. patent rights.

The dramatic increase is a result of the Sabah Al-Ahmad Center for Giftedness and Creativity (SACGC) recognizing and supporting Kuwait's most inventive citizens, according to the GAIN study. Over 50 of the approximately 80 U.S. patents issued to Kuwaiti citizens in 2013 were filed by inventors who received support from SACGC. With U.S. patent issuance as a key indicator, SACGC has helped make Kuwait a leader among Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries in developing its innovation based economy. Many of the U.S. patents issued to Kuwait citizens from 2011 through 2013 were the result of SACGC's inventor support programs.
