Korean companies earned a record-high number of Innovation Awards for Korea at this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the world's largest trade fair for household electronics and information technology.

The Institute for International Trade under the Korea International Trade Association on Jan. 10 said in a report on innovation trends amid the "living with COVID-19" era that Korean companies won 139 (22.3%) of the 623 awards presented at this year's CES, breaking the nation's previous mark of 101 set last year.

The awards honor consumer technology products with the highest ratings in 27 categories including design and technology. The highest-rated products in all categories receive the Best of Innovation Awards.

By company size, 80 of Korea's honorees were corporations, four mid-size businesses, and 55 smaller companies and startups.

By category, Korean companies accounted for 16 (48.5%) of the 33 entries in software and mobile apps, 10 (30.3%) of 33 in sustainability, eco-design and smart energy, and 14 (18.7%) of 75 in health and wellness.

The five Korean items earning Best of Innovation Awards comprised four from Samsung Electronics including its foldable smartphones and gaming monitors and the artificial intelligence-based company Petnow's pet diametric recognition technology using a "nose print."
