Intelligent use of IP assets helps companies meet the challenges, and stay competitive in the ever evolving market place. In addition to offering a look at the track of technology, no competitive analysis is comprehensive without a patent landscape.
What is the importance of patent landscape?
A patent landscape will provide you a complete list of current and future competitors along with an insight into your competitors’ strategic course of action, including future products and offerings. It can also help you in identifying opportunities for your research and development; patent investments, clarify the relative strength of your patent holdings and find out potential targets for acquisitions or strategic partnerships. This research is mainly conducted by patent law experts working in the field of patent filing in India and conducting the patent search.
Patent landscape is mainly done on behalf of companies that are seeking to develop new products in a particular area. The information gathered is used to help companies develop business plans and/or strategies. This research can help companies minimize risks by focusing on areas that do not contain a lot of patents and to identify areas for future growth.
What does the patent landscape report contain?
The report will contain information whether your competitors are patenting in the same area or conducting research like yours or not. The report will also have information on any new entrants in the market in your area and whether there are any patents pending similar to your outstanding or upcoming patents. Depending on the requirements, the patent landscape may or may not include an exhaustive list of patents and several times it contains a picture of the patenting activity in the area of interest.
Benefits of patent landscape
