Valéo dethrones Peugeot SA at the top of the 2016 ranking of INPI patents.
This is mostly the result of the policy of rationalization carried out by PSA for 4 years, today under the symbolic bar of the 1000, against an offensive policy of filing initiated in 2013 at Valéo.
These patent applications concern not only the technological solutions developed by the group, but also their alternatives, giving priority to reducing CO2 emissions and intuitive driving.
Safran occupies the 3rd place of the classification and the CEA the 4th. Renault, CNRS, Airbus, L’Oréal, Thalès, Orange and Michelin follow.
