India is experiencing a surge in start-ups and unicorns, and an effective intellectual property (IP) system is a prerequisite for a thriving startup ecosystem. New revolutionary technologies generated by the country have changed India into the world’s third-largest startup ecosystem. India ranks 42nd among 55 leading global economies on the International Intellectual Property (IIP) Index 2023 released by the U.S. Chambers of Commerce, according to which India is ripe to become a leader for emerging markets seeking to transform their economy through IP-driven innovation.
