Samsung Beats Sony With Patents as Shares Rise: Chart of the Day

May 9 (Bloomberg) -- Samsung Electronics Co., Asia’s

largest consumer-electronics maker, has widened its lead over

Sony Corp. in the number of U.S. patents obtained each year,

mirroring the gap in share performances between the companies.

The CHART OF THE DAY tracks the number of U.S. patents

obtained annually by Samsung, Sony and International Business

Machines Corp., the latter winning the most the past two

decades. Samsung, with headquarters in Suwon, South Korea,

opened a lead over Sony in 2003 and expanded on it since, with

more than twice as many last year as its Tokyo-based competitor,

according to data from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and

IFI Claims Patent Services. The lower panel shows Samsung and

Sony shares on a percentage-change basis starting from the end

of 1995, with the differential widening since 2003.

Sony, a trendsetter in the 1980s with products including

the Walkman, is struggling to recover from four years of losses

as consumers flock to smartphones and tablet computers from

Samsung and Apple Inc. Samsung Group, of which Samsung

Electronics is the largest unit, will boost spending to a record

47.8 trillion won ($42 billion) this year, including 31 trillion

won in capital expenditure, according to an e-mailed statement

in January.

“Sony can’t afford to develop new patents because of its


bad financials and, also, it doesn’t have a business model for


the future,” said Yoshihisa Toyosaki, president of Architect


Grand Design, a Japanese research and consulting company. “By


contrast, Samsung is applying for as many patents as it can. It


looks like Sony in the old days.”

Samsung, which ranked 21st among all companies in the total

number of U.S. patents obtained in 1995, jumped to the No. 2

spot in 2006 and has held onto it since. It was granted 4,868

patents last year, trailing only Armonk, New York-based IBM,

which got 6,148 in 2011, according to the Patent Office. Sony

ranked seventh last year with 2,265, up from 11th place in 1995,

according to the U.S. patent agency.
