No, trademarks do not typically need to be renewed on an annual basis. The renewal period for trademarks varies depending on the jurisdiction in which the trademark is registered. Most countries have renewal periods that range from 5 to 10 years.

Renewing a trademark involves submitting an application and paying the required fees within the designated timeframe specified by the intellectual property office or authority. This renewal process is necessary to maintain the legal protection and exclusive rights associated with the trademark.
