After a boom in 2021, investments in innovation showed a mixed performance in 2022. Scientific publications, R&D, venture capital (VC) deals and patents continued to increase to higher than ever. However, growth rates were lower than the exceptional increases seen in 2021. In addition, the value of VC investment declined and international patent filings stagnated in 2022. – Scientific publications grew moderately in 2022 by 1.5 percent to around 2 million articles, as health- and COVID-related research, which caused a boom in 2021, slowed.
Global R&D grew strongly at a rate of 5.2 percent in 2021 – close to pre-pandemic growth in 2019; business R&D grew strongly by 7 percent – a rate unseen since 2014. Data for 2022 are not yet available. – Global government R&D budgets are expected to have grown in real terms in 2022. Significant increases in real 2022 budgets were planned for Japan and the Republic of Korea, and a smaller one for Germany, making up for cuts in R&D budgets in 2022 by other top R&D spending governments such the United States.
