Rumor: China Has More 6G Patents Than the US?

While the transition from 4G to 5G is still in the early stages of development in some parts of the world, the race has started for stronger connectivity with 6G. The sixth generation of wireless technology, when operational, will dwarf the 5G speed of its predecessor. It is estimated that 6G will be 100 times faster than 5G and will offer several new applications and increase the overall communication speed. It will revolutionize the wireless communication spectrum and open up a world of new opportunities.

Rumor: China Has More 6G Patents Than the US?

China’s patent office, China’s National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA), has announced that the country is leading the way in the race for 6G technology. Several Chinese companies account for about 35% of global 6G-related patents. CNIPA says that with 13,449 patents out of an estimated 38,000 patents for 6G, China is a global leader in research and development of 6G technology. The United States is in second place with about 18% of patents.

Last month, the global leader in 5G technology, Huawei, hinted that 6G technology could be born at the turn of the century. The company continues to carry out research along this route despite its many difficulties. Several companies, including Apple and Samsung, are also known to be stepping up their research throughout the development of the 6G as the race heats up.

The US and its European allies have started a research project on 6G technology and can work together to have a common front. China will continue to explore partnerships between Chinese companies and companies from Japan and South Korea to pursue 6G capabilities. Therefore, Chinese companies will continue to reduce their dependence on US suppliers in the face of the hostile situation between Washington and Beijing.

According to their segment, the patent split shows that China holds an ace in Artificial Intelligence and terahertz technology, with several Chinese universities encouraging research in this segment. We will continue to monitor the progress, although we will still be implementing the actual 6G in a few years.
