We use research to continually improve the way we deliver services to customers. We also analyse and share data to help shape policy, research and commercialisation.

In addition to providing economic advice, IP Australia conducts a number of research projects and maintains publicly available data sets that offer key insights into the Australian IP system.

Key research and data initiatives at IP Australia include:

  • The Australian IP Report: a comprehensive annual report providing statistics and analysis on the economics of IP in Australia.
  • IP Government Open Data: a publicly available and free data set that provides access to over 100 years of information from IP Australia on IP rights applications.
  • Our economic research program : research that evaluates the economic impact of various components of the IP system, in order to assist evidence.
  • Our customer research that helps us continually improve our service offerings.
