Trademarks in Latin America—Economic Impact in 10 Latin America and Caribbean Countries
Published: October 28, 2019
We partnered with the Inter-American Association of Intellectual Property (ASIPI) to study how trademark-intensive sectors contribute to the economies in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Mexico, Panama, and Peru.
The study found that trademark-intensive sectors contribute 18 percent to employment—equating to 35 million jobs—and pay their employees up to 57 percent more in wages. It also found around one-third of a country’s international trade derives from trademark-intensive sectors.

This study assessed the economic contribution of trademark-intensive industries in five economies in the ASEAN region: Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand, and Singapore, which at the time accounted for nearly 90 percent of the ASEAN community’s combined Gross Domestic Product.
Trademarks in Latin America—Economic Impact in Five Latin America and Caribbean Countries
We partnered with the Inter-American Association of Intellectual Property (ASIPI) to study how trademark-intensive sectors contribute to the economies in Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Panama, and Peru.
Across the five countries, trademark-intensive industries generated 8 to 26 percent of total employment, and 10 to 21 percent of Gross Domestic Product. This is equivalent to 18.5 million jobs and a value added per person of US $2,390 annually.
