Patent landscaping is a kind of research and analysis that generates an overview of patents and patent applications of a particular technology. It can provide competitors’ technology and R&D analysis as well as analyze a portfolio for its economic value, licensing, strength or weakness.
How to do Patent Landscaping?/How to do patent landscape analysis?
We suggest to use our five-step proprietary process for creating a robust patent landscape analysis. Below are the steps:
- Determine the goal of the patent landscape study, e.g., idea generation, competitive intelligence, patent filing strategy, monetization, M&A, etc.?
- Decide which patent search and analytics software and third-party services to use.
- Conduct a preliminary search across patents and technical literature to determine the taxonomy for categorization of the results.
- Extract the single-family list of patents relevant to the technology area to perform various analysis and categorization of the extracted data.
- Perform categorization of patents as per the defined taxonomy and generate graphical representations using the information extracted from the data.
