What kind of royalties on inventions can an inventor expect to earn?

Royalties on Inventions

The percentage of royalties paid to inventors for their inventions can vary from as low as 1-2 percent to as high as 15-20 percent depending on several factors that include the size of the industry, market and manufacturer. An average royalty though is around 5 percent.

Often, a large and well known manufacturer might offer a smaller percentage than a smaller manufacturer. But if that larger manufacturer can bring greater brand recognition, distribution and customers to the mix, the smaller percentage could end up equaling a larger amount of money.
