Trademark to Protect Your Brand in China

First to File

Since China operates as a first to file country, no proof of use is required for trademark registration. It’s imperative that you register your Chinese trademark as soon as possible before someone else does.

Once registered, you’re protected in China for 10 years. Only then will you have the support you need from various governmental channels to properly enforce and protect your brand.

  • The General Administration of Customs (GAC)
  • The State Administration for Industry and Commerce of the People's Republic of China (SAIC)
  • Civil Court and Criminal Litigation

Rapid Growth

Over the last ten years, China’s trademark filing count has skyrocketed to astronomical heights. In 2006, for example, China filed approximately 760, 000 marks. Fast forward to 2017, during which year China filed 5,748,000 trademarks.

Given that registration is required to do business in all major Chinese markets, trademark filing is incredibly competitive — with no signs of slowing down.

World’s #1 Trademark Filer

China has the highest number of annual trademark filings worldwide. Statistics show that a total of 5,748,000 China trademarks were filed in 2017 alone — compared to just 435,384 trademarks in the United States and only 59,101 in Canada! With such rapid growth, you must register as early as possible to secure your brand.
