The IP Office publishes an analytical report with activity indicators in the field of intellectual property for 2023.

IP trends in Ukraine

The current state of play in the IP sphere logically reflects general macroeconomic trends in the country. Thus, compared to 2022, the total number of applications for industrial property increased by 47.6% and amounted to 32,759 applications. This amount exceeds the indicator of 2022 (22,195 applications) by more than 10.5 thousand applications, but is inferior to the pre-war level in 2021 (41,003).

The increase in the rate of filing industrial property applications for the last year is a clear indication of the inventive community and business intensification and is a consequence of positive expectations for the development of the economic, political and social situation in Ukraine.

Inventions, as the most complex and important industrial property right, show an increase of 5.5%.

The applications filing dynamic for other industrial property is higher:

  • utility models - 47.4%;
  • industrial designs - 34.8%;
  • trademarks - more than 55.4%.

Inventive activity

The current challenges for the intellectual property sphere, creative and innovative sectors of Ukraine's economy make it possible to adapt quickly due to the creative potential of innovators.

Intellectual property is an integral part of innovative recovery, as ensuring the introduction of new technologies and, accordingly, the location of production in Ukraine requires proper protection of intellectual assets. Thus, the post-war recovery of the country depends on the development of the innovation sector.

Analysis of statistical data on filing for inventions and utility models shows that the inventive activity of national applicants in 2023 increased by 42.5% compared to the previous year .

The total number of registrations of inventions and utility models by resident applicants amounted to 3,104, which is 16.6% more than the indicator of the previous year. Comparing the figures for 2022 and 2023, the number of utility model registrations increased by 31.7%

Business Activity

Trademarks are long-lasting productive assets that contribute to economic growth and can be used in economic analysis of innovation.

The 61.7% increase in the trademark filing under the national procedure by resident applicants indicates that the figures for 2023 are gradually approaching those of the pre-war years.

The share of resident applicants in the total number of trademark applications has increased significantly and amounts to 73.0%. The share of applications filed under the Madrid system by non-resident applicants is 66.9%.

Expectations for 2024

Given the current growth in the rate of filings and positive trends in the national economic recovery, the total number of applications for industrial property rights in 2024 may reach the level of 2021.

The analysis of the obstacles that limit the development of IP mediation in Ukraine and the study of possible ways to effectively eliminate them are presented by Vladyslav Bilotskyi, Deputy Director of Ukrainian National Office for Intellectual Property and Innovations (IP Office), and Aurika Hrybovska, Head of the Mediation Centre of IP Office.

The specialists took part in the conference "LVІХ International Scientific and Practical Conference”, Canada, Ottawa, where they presented their study "Problems of Implementing and Conducting IP Mediation in Ukraine". The authors note that mediation, one of the basic principles of which is the voluntary implementation of a conciliation agreement by the parties, is designed for conscious and conscientious participants in conflict resolution who are psychologically ready to find mutually beneficial solutions. The main criteria should be a person's ability to negotiate, establish relationships with others and communicate.

The research of IP Office specialists also showed that the factors that slow down the development of IP mediation in Ukraine include:

  • low level of public trust in mediation;
  • traditional positions of the parties to the dispute;
  • the specifics of national justice.

To overcome them, the focus should be on:

  • increasing the level of trust to mediation;
  • spreading information about the benefits of mediation and its success in comparison with other methods of resolving IP disputes;
  • including the issue of IP mediation in the agenda of the general judicial reform.

On May 13-14, 2024, Director of the IP Office Olena Orliuk and Deputy Director of the IP Office Liubov Maidanyk visited the Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition in Munich (Germany).

The management of the national office joined the round table “Opening up Data for Research on Ukraine”, organized by the Institute, and also took part in a number of informal working meetings on deepening bilateral cooperation between the Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition and the IP Office in the area of intellectual property legal protection and Ukraine IP rights enforcement.

In her speech at the roundtable, Olena Orliuk emphasized the intensity of innovative progress and technological development.

The use of the latest technologies and artificial intelligence is already a top trend. According to the director of the IP office, Ukraine is also making every effort to keep up with global innovation trends, despite the war of aggression that russia is waging against Ukraine, which has a negative impact on the functioning and development of the Ukrainian economy.

Despite all the problems and challenges, Ukrainian business continues to work, adapt to the extremely difficult realities, looking for new ideas for implementing and scaling its projects, fill the economy with the necessary high-tech products, and looking for ways to enter new markets", said Olena Orliuk.

She noted that today a large number of Ukrainian companies are developing modern technical solutions in such pivotal areas as DefenseTech, MedTech, IT, and AI. This helps to accelerate global innovation development and strengthen our country's defense potential and economy in times of war, prioritizing the lives of our military and preventing the damage to civilians.

Olena Orliuk also shared details related to the institutional development of the Ukrainian IP Office, its vision and development plans, as well as the latest documents, including:

Special emphasis was pointed on The National IP Strategy until 2030, which is being developed by national and foreign experts, and the role of the IP Office in this process.

Liubov Maidanyk shared with the roundtable participants the details of Ukrainian IP office cooperation with the EU institutions in the IP sphere and provided the main statistics on the receipt of applications for IPR and registration by the IP office. In particular, she noted that the total number of applications for industrial property rights in 2023 increased by 47.6% compared to 2022. Inventions showed an increase of 5.5%, utility models - 47.4%, industrial designs - 34.8%, and trademarks - more than 55.4%.

The speaker also spoke about e-services and interactive information and online systems of the IP Office and international instruments with which the national IP office actively interacts. In particular, she spoke about the Global Brand Database and the Global Design Database. These databases are regularly updated and contain up-to-date information, including on Ukrainian documentation.

Liubov Maydanyk also highlighted that due to wartime conditions, some information in Ukrainian registers is restricted for security reasons.

For information: 

The event was organised by the Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition to strengthen research about Ukraine, collect and study complete data in the innovation cycle: from education and science to inventions, innovations, small and medium-sized enterprises and industry.

The roundtable participants were looking for answers to the questions that arise when systematically studying public data in order to synergize cooperation with data owners and possible joint research teams with Ukrainian experts.

On 1 May 2024, the Order of the Ministry of Economy of Ukraine, “On Approval of the Rules for Drafting and Submitting Industrial Design Applications and Conducting an Examination of Industrial Design Applications and International Registration of Industrial Designs,” entered into force.

This order was registered with the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine on 16 April 2024 under No. 547/41892.

The Order defines:

  • rules for applying for an industrial design,
  • list of documents to be provided,
  • examination procedure rules.

Adopting the new Order will help product manufacturers register their designs quickly and easily, protect them from copying, and peacefully develop their businesses. Its implementation will bring many benefits since it streamlines the registration process, fortifies industrial designs against copying, and paves the way for businesses to flourish.

“The Ministry of Economy is actively working on expanding business opportunities to use tools to protect creative solutions. The appearance of industrial products plays a crucial role in promoting products on the market. Therefore, creating a fast and transparent mechanism for registering industrial design rights should help businesses obtain protection and bring their innovative products to the market.

The updated Rules contain novelties regarding electronic document flow and also include provisions that will allow businesses to quickly manage and commercialise this intellectual asset even at the stage of registration”, – notes Deputy Minister of Economy Vitaliy Kindrativ.

The approval of the Rules on Industrial Designs is of important European integration significance. Olena Orliuk, the head of the Ukrainian IP Office, emphasised this:

“The action plan for implementing the European Commission’s recommendations, presented in the Report on Ukraine's progress as part of the 2023 European Union Enlargement Package, determines the need to adopt acts on the examination of applications for industrial designs to bring the secondary legal acts of Ukraine into compliance with the EU acquis in June 2024. Therefore, adopting the relevant Rules is another evidence of Ukraine’s timely fulfilment of European integration obligations”.

Also, the Rules define the IP Office’s authority to check, within the application examination proceedings, whether the applicant (one of the applicants) or the author (one of the authors) is not a person associated with the aggressor state. If such information is confirmed, the IP Office has the right to decide on refusing the state registration of an industrial design.

WIPO Supports Ukraine in Developing the National Intellectual Property Strategy: Results of the Session "IP Strategy: WIPO for Ukraine"

Representatives of the IP Office participate in the 45th session of the WIPO Standing Committee on Copyright and Related Rights

As a testament to our shared commitment to intellectual property, the collaborative session' IP Strategy: WIPO for Ukraine' was not just a meeting, but a platform where ideas were shared and valued. It was held as part of  IP Week 2024, dedicated to World IP Day (April 26). This session saw the active participation of esteemed representatives from the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and our valued stakeholders from Ukraine's intellectual property sector.

Addressing the session participants with his expertise and authority, WIPO Director General Daren Tang, in his video message, underscored the pivotal role of the audience in shaping the IP Strategy and elaborated on the significant role of intellectual property in unlocking the power of innovation and creativity to address global challenges. His call for unity to build a better future resonated with the audience, emphasising the importance of this collective effort:

Throughout history, when faced of challenges, it has been human ingenuity, ideas and innovation that has allowed us to overcome and succeed. So, to put the SDGs [the UN Sustainable Development Goals] back on track, we need to harness intellectual property as a catalyst to unleash the power of innovation and creativity to address our common global challenges. (…) IP can be the vehicle to turn bold new ideas into real-world impact. So on this World IP Day, let us come together as a global community and use the power of IP to achieve the SDGs to build a better future for all of us.

The session was moderated by Bogdan Paduchak, First Deputy Director of the Ukrainian IP Office, who also congratulated everyone on the International Day of Intellectual Property and reminded once again that Ukraine can celebrate this holiday and look to the future thanks to the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which defend our independence every day.

Mr Paduchak, in his role as the moderator, also familiarised the audience with the draft National IP Strategy, a document of utmost importance that is currently under discussion and preparation. He reiterated the significance of implementing this new strategy, which is designed to effectively address the challenges that Ukraine’s intellectual property sector is currently facing:

“Since the adoption of the last draft of the National Strategy, Ukraine has experienced an incredible number of changes and challenges. Russia’s aggressive war against our country, huge losses and challenges for society and the economy, the EU candidate status and rapid technological and institutional reform of the intellectual property sphere – all this prompted the development of a new National IP Strategy.”

Habip Asan, Director of the WIPO Division for Transition and Developed Countries, also joined the discussion. He thanked the Ministry of Economy team supervised by Deputy Minister Vitaly Kindrativ and the Ukrainian IP Office team headed by Olena Orliuk for their dedication and work in developing the new Strategy. He additionally made remarks on the importance of this Strategy not just for the sphere of intellectual property but in general for society, the daily life of Ukrainians, and the reconstruction of our country:

“Our shared goal is for the Strategy to serve as a road map to guide Ukraine's development in the coming years, harnessing the power of innovation, creativity and intellectual property, catalysing economic growth, promoting technological progress and encouraging invention. WIPO is ready to support the Ukrainian IP office at all process stages, from its development to its successful implementation”.

Habip Asan

Virag Halgand, Head of the WIPO Section for Central European and Baltic States and Mediterranean Countries, also joined the discussion. She noted the importance of the Strategy in coordinating the efforts of all stakeholders to create an effective action plan and implement it in close cooperation with international partners.

At the end of the discussion, Dr Heiko Richter, LLM (Columbia), Senior Research Fellow in the Department of Intellectual Property and Competition Law at the Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition, in his capacity as WIPO Expert, shared the progress of the analytical and diagnostic phase of work on the Strategy, which identifies areas that need further strengthening. He further emphasised the importance of synchronising the Ukrainian Strategy with current EU legislation.

Heiko Richter

Summing up the day’s initial discussion session, the Director of the Ukrainian IP Office, Olena Orliuk, addressed the audience and extended her gratitude to the colleagues from WIPO for their unrelenting support and noted the importance of the development of IP culture for Ukraine:

“I want to congratulate all of us again on International Intellectual Property Day. This day is especially notable for Ukraine since it coincides with the 38th anniversary of the Chornobyl tragedy. Therefore, we understand very well the importance of achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals to build the future, especially through the lens of Russia's ongoing military aggression against Ukraine. Therefore, we need to do everything possible in our field to offer society the tools to help both recover and develop. In this context, we are talking about the Strategy, which, I am sure, will appear in Ukraine. And we will all clearly understand where we are going next”.

The document defines the mission, strategic directions, aims and objectives of the IP office for the coming years.

The effectiveness of Ukraine's struggle for independence during the decades-long war of aggression unleashed by Russia, post-war recovery and technological development of our country largely depend on intellectual capital, on the constant investment of efforts by the state, business and society in the development of the innovation and creative sectors, on the development of an effective innovation ecosystem and the national intellectual property system as a whole.

Currently, international and national experts, experts from the IP Office and the Ministry of Economy, representatives of various IP sectors are actively working on the drafting of the National Intellectual Property Strategy of Ukraine until 2030. Its first draft will be presented on April 26 during the IP Week 2024. Further discussions will continue and recommendations are expected from the WIPO experts with whom the document is being prepared. GIZ experts were also involved in drafting recommendations on sectoral aspects of IP.

Joint efforts, a wide range of experts and specialists involved, as well as public discussions should contribute to the development of a high-quality strategic document for the IP sphere, which is planned to be approved by a governmental act.

In the context of the work on this document, we offer for review the IP Office’s Strategic Development Plan for 2024-2028, approved in February 2024 by the Ministry of Economy.

The Strategic Plan takes into account the fact that the IP Office was established in 2022, the year of the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine and the ongoing ninth year of the war. This directly affected the viability, protection and defense of the country, as well as the need to intensify the state's activities in all sectors of the economy. And the intellectual property sphere is not an exception.

"When drafting the Strategic Plan and defining key directions, we started from an understanding of common goals of the national intellectual property system as an integral part of the Ukrainian economy. We strive to join the European Union and NATO to create safe conditions for our future life and development. That is why our business, civil sector, government institutions, and society as a whole are working hard not only helping the Defense Forces to defend Ukraine and fight for its independence, including all possible international platforms, but also ensuring compliance with the requirements for joining the EU and NATO. We must continue to implement reforms, following the course of the EU candidate country. The support for the Ukrainian intellectual property sector, which suffered heavy losses from the war, is also reflected in consistent steps and acts of WIPO, European organizations, and actions of our foreign partners, and we deeply appreciate such support. We realize that some of the measures we have identified are of a longer-term nature than the timeframe of this plan. However, our team will work hard to implement the key areas and goals. Ukrainians are an intellectual and creative nation that deserves an innovative future. Effective, transparent, persistent and consistent activities of the IP Office are an important steps towards making this future real", - noted the IP Office’s Director Olena Orliuk.

In particular, the Strategy outlines nine strategic directions of the IP office:

1.Development of International Cooperation in the IP Sphere

The vision of the IP Office is to promote Ukraine's position on the world IP map, to launch a qualitatively new level of cooperation with WIPO and professional representation of Ukraine's interests there. It also aims to facilitate the regional and bilateral network cooperation development, including strengthening the cooperation with national and regional IP offices, in particular with EUIPO, EPO, and USPTO.

IP Office will continue to counteract Russia's attempts to legitimize its armed aggression against Ukraine through international organizations in the IP sphere.

2. Reliable Protection of Applicants' IP Rights

The aim is to ensure effective procedures for the examination of IPR applications based on the principles of the rule of law, legality, transparency, publicity, digitalization, objectivity, impartiality, independence, reliability, scientific validity, up-to-date methodological support, effective management of human resources, and compliance with reasonable time limits. The IP Office will also continue to work on compliance with ISA/IPEA standards.

3. Digital Transformation

The aim is to transfer service processes, administration, examination and “Applicant-Office” interaction to online adaptive and modern processes, which will increase productivity and quality of services. IP Office team aims to create tools for adaptation of hardware and software to the latest technologies, including artificial intelligence, which also aims to harmonize the technological environment for efficient exchange of IP data with the global community, national and regional offices, as well as international organizations, which will allow to create applied tools for intensification of work within the framework of global partnership.

4. High-Quality and Effective Legal Support of the IP Sphere

It involves the formation of a legal framework in which Ukraine is actively moving towards the harmonization and implementation of EU legislation in the sphere of IP legal protection and enforcement. A separate direction is the drafting of proposals for national legislation on the development of innovative entrepreneurship, building an innovative ecosystem and commercialization of intellectual property, taking into account the EU best practices.

5. Efficient Protection of IP Rights 

The vision of the IP Office in this direction lies in comprehensive steps to implement the forms and methods of IP rights protection provided for by law, in particular, through administrative proceedings. Promoting the introduction of alternative methods of IP rights enforcement, in particular mediation, including through the development of the Mediation Center at the IP Office. Active cooperation with Ukrainian and foreign stakeholders to prevent IP rights violations and implement sanctions policy. IPRs Infringement Monitoring Center functioning within the IP Office, strengthening its cooperation with the European Observatory on Infringements of Intellectual Property Rights, etc.

6. High-Quality Platform for IP Dialogue

It focuses on the IP Office activities as a high-quality platform for dialogue with right holders, business, creative industries, innovation entities, professional community, NGOs and governmental institutions to develop proposals on regulatory and legal regulation and improvement of the IP law enforcement, IP culture and awareness raising.

7. Innovation Breakthrough as a Basic Benchmark for Ukraine's Recovery and Development. National IP&Innovations Hub

The IP Office defines its vision in creating favorable conditions for inventive activity, commercialization of intellectual property rights and development of Ukraine's innovation ecosystem, development of tools to support innovators and businesses during the war and in the framework of Ukraine's recovery, promotion of innovation in the field of national security and defense in terms of intellectual property and technology transfer. As well as in promoting national businesses and creators to international markets through the functioning of the National IP&Innovations Hub, established within the IP Office. Expanding the TISC network and supporting regional projects of the TISC network. Strengthening the links between the national and international innovation systems.

8. Cultivating a Culture of Respect for IP 

It is about the active position of the IP Office in shaping the culture and respect for intellectual property, in creating opportunities for lifelong learning on intellectual property to increase the level of literacy and development of culture in the field of intellectual property, awareness of the rights of artists, inventors, creators, primarily through the IP Academy within the IP Office. Consistent steps aimed at raising awareness, promoting respect for IP rights, and improving the skills of IP specialists, including in cooperation with the WIPO Academy and international partners, will contribute to the improvement of Ukraine's rankings in the Global Creativity Index, Global Innovation Index, and integration of the Ukrainian innovation ecosystem into the European Research Area.

9. Transparency of IP Office Activities

The vision of the IP Office in this direction is to achieve clarity and transparency of the current activities of the IP Office with the aim of qualitative and efficient performance of functions and powers defined by the current legislation and the Charter of the organization in the field of intellectual property and innovations on the basis of the rule of law, financial discipline, effective organization of internal control and audit, procurement procedures based on the principles of legality, transparency, efficiency, targeted use of funds and control, comprehensive compliance with the anti-corruption legislation.
