|Trademark:||103 thousand 747||13 thousand 976||117 thousand|

Turkey has broken a record in trademark application. It ranks in number one in Europe with about 120 thousand trademark applications. In 2011 103 thousand 747 local and 13 thousand 976 foreign in total 117 thousand trademark applications were made. France is in rank two after Turkey with 91 thousand 214 applications.
Last year 7 thousand 262 local and 6 thousand 223 foreign in total 13 thousand 485 patent and utility model applications were made at Turkish Patent Institute.
The increase rate of local patent applications of Turkey in 2011 is 26 percent.
Local patent and utility model application increase in first six month of this year have increased by 14 per cent when compared to the same period of last year and the number of application has increased from 3 thousand 698 to 4 thousand 202. Foreign patent and utility model application increase has been 19 per cent when compared to the same period of last year and the number of applications has increased from 2 thousand 918 to 3 thousand 470.
As long as we could not achieve brandization in reality, broken record and achieved rank one will not be triggering development, which is considerably clear.
