Intellectual Property significantly contributes to the economy of the nations. As reported by Corrado and Hulten (2010) that the investment rate for tangible assets are higher in comparison to intangible assets through 1973 to 1994 and thereafter a drastic change has been seen wherein investment ratio of tangible to intangible get reversed post 1994 and this line of argument has been supported by Lev (2018) by showing that the investment rate into intangible assets are much higher than the tangible assets through 2007 to 2017. There are vast literature available world-wide which supports that there is positive relationship between Intellectual Property and Economy. Nevertheless, there is a dearth of literature on “Intellectual Property” AND “Economy” studied using bibliometric analysis. Therefore, this paper attempts to study the topic through utilizing bibliometric analysis that has been performed using the Web of Science (WoS) data from the year 1991 to 2024. The data collected has been analysed using the technological tools like VOSViewer and Microsoft Excel against the research questions carved out in the methodology section of this paper. The result analysis exposes wonderful insights into the trends of publications over the topic, most prolific authors and journals, discipline and subject types, affiliation and countries, key words networks and citation analysis. This study will guide the future researchers by given them a valuable insight over the already accomplished breath and length of study on “Intellectual Property” AND “Economy”.
