Patent landscape reports provide a snap-shot of the patent situation of a specific technology, either within a given country or region, or globally.
They start with a state-of-the-art search for the relevant technology in selected patent databases. The search results are then analyzed to answer specific questions about, for example, patterns of patenting activity (- who's doing what? what is filed where?) or patterns of innovation (innovation trends, diverse solutions for a technical problem, collaborations). The results are presented visually to assist understanding, as well as conclusions or recommendations based on the empirical evidence provided.
