Asia has become an undisputed global innovation hub. From emerging domestic enterprises to established household names, Asian companies are taking centre stage as the balance of economic power shifts eastwards. As they stake their claims in the global marketplace, ensuring that they have the necessary expertise to create, manage, commercialise and drive strategic value from their intellectual property will be vital to their continued success.

In 2012, the Intellectual Asset Management (IAM) editorial team revealed the China IP Elite – those Chinese companies that have made the greatest strides in developing their IP assets and strategies. In 2013, in the lead-up to the inaugural IP Business Congress Asia, the editorial team identified the Asia IP Elite: those companies that consistently put intellectual property at the very heart of their overall corporate decision making and, as a result, substantially enhance their overall business strategies.

The exhaustive research process was based around close examination of multiple data points, as well as hundreds of interviews with senior IP professionals both in Asia and beyond. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first time that such research has been undertaken.
