Future Visions and Policy Recommendations for ASEAN Member States (AMSs) based on Estimation of Industrial Property Applications

The research project ‘Future Visions and Policy Recommendations for ASEAN Member States (AMS) based on Estimation of Industrial Property Applications’, was conducted by the Yoshitoshi Tanaka Project Group of the Tokyo Institute of Technology over a 2-year period from Sept 2017 to Aug 2019 under the supervision of ERIA. This research forecasts the number of industrial property applications in each AMS using multiple-regression analysis based on historical data of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) database and the World Bank database as independent variables. It was found that the number of industrial property applications by residents in most AMS has been lower and is forecast to remain lower than the number of applications by non-residents. Indeed, in every AMS patent applications by residents are quite low, which will become a big obstacle to their future industrial development. In the hope of making a contribution to their industrial development, we tried to identify the driving factors to increase IP applications by residents, which consist of patents, utility models, design, and trademarks in each AMS. As one of the results of the research, the individual driving factors and necessary actions have been proposed to the government of each AMS. We hope AMS will be able to benefit from the results of this research in their pursuit of economic growth.
