The Korea Intellectual Property Office released a report on the Micro LED industry IP situation - in which it says that Korean display companies may lose their current industry lead as they account for less than 15% of all micro LED display patent applications.

The leading countries in Micro-LED IP are China and the United States - which together account for more than 50% of all applications.

Looking at all Micro-LED patent applications filed between 2000 and April 2018, the Korean IPO says that US companies filed for 525 applications, Chinese companies for 353 companies and Korean ones for 243 applications. Other leading countries are Taiwan (140 applications) and Ireland (91).
