China currently leads the United States in science and engineering research output. The US lost its top spot after 2008.

According to data from the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), "2,555,959 science and engineering (S&E) articles were published around the world in 2018," Statista reports. This is up from 1,755,850 recorded just ten years ago.

China increased research output at a rate double the world's average over the past decade, Statista noted, causing the U.S. to lose the lead it held in 2008 as the world's foremost S&E research publisher.
