… Think again.
Foxconn, the world’s largest EMS/ODM, with annual revenues now topping $200 billion (!), said this week it now has more than 54,000 invention patents worldwide.
Some 63% of them have been issued in the US (17,600 patents) and Japan (16,200).
Among the most common technology areas:
- Computer accessories 17%
- Semiconductors 14%
- Processing and detection technologies 13%

If you wonder what the end-game is, think worldwide monopoly.
