(aka White Space or Technology Landscape searches)
What is a patent landscape?
Whether you are exploring or moving into a new area of technology, or would like to get an overview of what your competitors are up to, an evaluation of the patent landscape is a valuable resource. A patent landscape search begins by collecting a large set of patents and patent applications focused on either an area of technology of interest, or assigned to a set of competitors (or a combination of both).
What information can a patent landscape give me?
Analyzing a large set of patent data can provide answers companies need when making strategic business decisions:
What areas of technology are my competitors focusing on?
What have been the technology trends over the last ten years?
Who are the leading players in a particular area of technology?
Who are the companies and inventors coming up with the latest cutting edge inventions?
Are there any new startup companies to be aware of?
Which companies are only following the leaders in the field?
Are there areas of technology which are very crowded with patents?
Are there other open areas which may represent R&D opportunities?
