Focus Landscape Search

A FOCUS landscape search will bring into focus the patent situation in a technical field or in the context of your competitors. Depending on your needs, you can choose from three options.

What is a Focus landscape search?

The FOCUS landscape search is offered at an attractive flat rate. You get a clear product at a fixed price that includes the patent landscape search and the final reporting of the results with a summary and recommendations from our search team.

A FOCUS landscape search will bring into focus the patent situation in a technical field or in the context of your competitors. Depending on your needs, you can choose from the following three options:

  1. In-depth analysis
    In-depth analysis of one entity. This search could, for example, include an analysis of an entity’s patent citations. It could also reveal the relevant inventions in time and in a technical field. You might also be interested in statistics regarding the time to grant or the “dead” and “alive” patents.
     
  2. Topic analysis
    Define your position within a particular area of technology. You will get an idea of the largest players and in which part(s) of the world the technical area is most protected. We will prepare an overview of the technical field, including your position, based on the portfolio size.
     
  3. Competitor analysis
    Compare the patent filing activity of five competitors. We will investigate the number of filings over time and examine the countries in which the competitors file and the technical areas in which they are filing. We can also detail the co-operations established between companies over the years.

The Reporting

Our reporting will be done by means of a PowerPoint Presentation. In the presentation we illustrate the outcome of the patent landscape search in approximately eight graphs. Furthermore, our search team will summarize the main findings and give you recommendations for further investigation, if applicable.

Add-ons

A new feature of the FOCUS landscape search is the possibility of “add-ons”. If, for example, the topic analysis reveals a competitor that is very active in the most relevant technological field, it might be worthwhile to do an in-depth analysis of the competitor and to add on this additional search. Or you might want to conduct regular patent watches to keep an eye on your competitors or the developments in a certain technical field. NLO can provide this service for you.
