Citing a new study by Fairview Research's IFI Claims Patent Services, the report said, "that shows Chinese firms are increasingly responsible for a greater share of the world's innovation."

The analytics firm said when it comes to global patent ownership, Chinese companies also dominate.

Although Huawei's networking equipment is excluded from the U.S. market, and the Biden administration has banned it from obtaining some components for its phones, the Shenzhen-based company has succeeded in obtaining more patents, said the report.

"Everywhere you turn, they (Chinese companies) seem to be establishing themselves, or seeking to establish themselves, as major players," IFI Claims Chief Executive Officer Mike Baycroft was quoted as saying.
