Patent Analytics

Patent analytics uses patent information to uncover innovation insights and patterns in a particular area or technology field. Patent analytics provides data-driven, evidence-based information that allows organizations make better strategic decisions in areas of research and development, innovation policies, IP commercialization and licensing, research collaboration, and many others.

Patent analytics is often carried out in several steps, such as obtaining data, evaluating it and finding patterns, and presenting results.
