Patent landscaping

What patents do your competitors have?
Being a business owner means you are putting in a lot of behind-the-scenes effort into product innovations. Your competitors are most likely doing the same – like you, they are not biding their time. For this reason, it is good to know exactly what patents are out there, or what patent applications are pending. A patent landscaping will bring everything into focus for you.

Patent landscaping creates a clear view of the patent structure within a technical field, country, region or even globally. The results may also help you decide in which countries to submit your patent application.

A smart patent strategy

You can use the results to:

  • Compare your own position with that of your competitors
  • Define your exact position within a particular area of technology
  • Approach potential licensees or strategic partners

In short, patent landscaping results will put you in a position to adopt a smart patent strategy.

Always in the loop

Of course you are free to make a one-off patent landscaping request, but sometimes it may be smarter to conduct regular searches. This will keep you informed of patent activities:

  • in different countries
  • of specific other companies
  • within an area of technology
