There is an renewed focus on manufacturing in Australia with investment through R&D tax incentives, grants, innovation labs and growth centres. Manufacturers need to consider the benefits to patenting research-generated IP and ensure their IP is protected in the country of manufacture, even if they do not intend to sell their products there.

Advanced manufacturing is a source of competitive advantage and therefore also requires protection equal to that of innovative products and processes.
