I thought I would drop in a couple of interesting charts/tables I found in the WTO's 2020 World Trade Report.

There is a ton of interesting information/charts in the document (World Trade Report 2020: Government policies to promote innovation in the digital age (wto.org))

The WTO website itself also has lots of other resources available which look good but I haven't followed up on yet.


I found the first chart quite interesting as to the speed at which IT infrastructure growth is occurring in each sector.

The second chart is showing the rate of change of patent applications in the IT& communications space compared to total patent applications.

The final table is showing the top patent applicants by AI field which really gives an insight as to who is really pushing forward in this space!
