  • Patent landscaping is generally performed on behalf of businesses that are looking to develop new products in a particular area. The information provided by the patent landscape is used to help companies to develop their business plans and research and development strategies. A patent landscape can help companies to minimize research risks by focusing on research areas that are crowded and can help companies identify areas for future growth.
    • A patent landscape can provide companies with information about how likely they are to get a patent approved. The patent office will not allow patents that are too similar to each other, so it is important to make sure that another company is not conducting research or planning patents in the same research area. Patent landscapes help companies to understand the intellectual property risks involved in research, that is, the likelihood that another company will claim ownership of the same technology.


      A patent landscape report will generally contain information about whether your competitors are patenting in the same business or research areas as your company. A patent landscape analysis that includes different steps from understanding, background study, taxonomy preparation, search strategies, analysis, noise reduction, quality checking and detailed representation with market insights. Here is a sample representation of basic taxonomy for a memory card that includes different parameters to evaluate such as file system, manufacturing technique, a semiconducting material, processing technique, read/write speed, size and thereof.
      Patent landscape is an important and excellent resource of ideas and information that can be used in the research and innovation model to identify opportunities and threats to a business and improve its survivability and profitability in the modern and competitive market. Patent landscape reports are intended to give a snapshot or overview of the patents in a specific subject area or covering a type of technology. Generally taking one to two weeks to complete, a landscape report can cover hundreds or even thousands of patent families. They can be used to visualise and discover existing whitespace in relevant areas, gain actionable competitive intelligence by understanding the current landscape, predict where your market is heading and spot trends in areas of interest to aid investment.
