Department of Homeland Security, “Intellectual Property Rights Seizure Statistics” (2012)

The number of IPR seizures decreased to 22,848 shipments in FY 2012 from 24,792 in FY 2011 (largely due to certain high-volume counterfeited patents leaving service). The estimated manufacturer’s suggested retail price for all FY 2012 IPR seizures is $1.26 billion, up from $1.1 billion in FY 2011. China was the source for 72% of seized goods.
