The Process of Patent Landscape Analysis

A patent search is carried out on commercial patents and non-patent data. The analysis starts with a relevant keyword and its synonym, and further, it proceeds with a class-based, citation, and assignee-inventor search.

The invention’s nature determines the number of results generated for it. With broader and older technologies, you can generate thousands of results, while for newer and narrow ones, there can be around ten to a hundred results.

Once the search is performed, it will analyse the results and generate valid results. The report also contains relevant trends and deep insights for understanding the current position of technology. Patent landscape reports provide through a proper patent dashboard.

In short, patent landscaping involves computer software and human intelligence. It proceeds with surveys and reports that are organised and then reported.

A patent landscape, once completed, helps businesses reveal crucial information about the analysis. There are around five key steps that are involved in the process, and it takes, in combination, various decisions based on the study’s purpose.

This kind of process involves the following steps, which include:

  1. Search, review, and refine the subject matter
  2. Data cleanup and normalisation
  3. Review data, create categories, and populate
  4. Create charts/tables and visualisations
  5. Ongoing monitoring and analysis
