Graphene – Patent Analysis Study
It is clear from the patenting trends in graphene-related patents and company portfolio and activity, that this is a rapidly emerging research-based area of technology.
Graphene exhibits range of extraordinary properties, possible uses of it are apparently almost endless. For example, it is so strong, people want to use it to reinforce plastics, making them conductive at the same time. Because it’s transparent and conducts electricity, people want to use it in applications like mobile phone screens, touch screens, TV screens and so on. People are also considering using it to go beyond silicon technology and make our integrated circuits even denser and speedier.
Visual Patent Analysis – What and Why?
Visual analysis is a powerful method to address challenges posed by patent information overload.
For companies it is critical to detect white-spaces and patent minefields early in the R&D cycle each of which can perhaps generate or save millions of dollars at a later stage. Traditional graphs and charts are good for displaying the results of an analysis activity but not for quickening and improving the analysis process.
Role of Patent Analysis in Business Strategy
Patent Analysis helps in getting an overview of the technologies the competitors’ are working on.
White Space Analysis using Patent iNSIGHT Pro
Many Technology and IP managers today look at white-space analysis as one of the key methods for strategic product innovation.
• Refine research direction by finding new areas for innovation and exclusivity
• Enhance product-patent portfolio. Broaden scope of existing patents by locating spaces around your patent positions which should perhaps be included in your claim coverage
In Patent iNSIGHT Pro you can use a combination of user defined categories and co-ocurrency analysis to conduct detailed white space analysis.
