Landscape Analysis

It is a multi-step process of examining, organizing, and extracting value from in-depth patent search results in a specific technology area. A landscape analysis consists of a set of references and accompanying analytics from which important technical, legal, and business information can be extracted. 

Landscape analysis provides a basis for understanding which enterprises, companies, & institutions are working in a particular area, gaining current awareness on a given technology, what technologies are being targeted, how the technical problems are being solved, gaps in the technologies, where the patents are being filed, who are the key inventors, and which product features are disclosed.

This information helps an organization to monitor competitor activity, generate novel technologies, design around competitor’s technology, identify licensing options and reduce legal risks, optimize R&D processes, business development, and marketing strategies, and develop a comprehensive IP strategy.

Challenges Faced While Conducting Landscape Analysis

Immense standard documents (more than 500K+ relevant documents)тАЛ

As large set of data is to be analysed, so a well structured approach is needed

Complete manual research & analysis resulting in a higher cost of review

No integration with recent AI & ML-based analysis technologies

Limited search capabilities reduces the scope of covering comprehensive dataset related to landscape analysis

Insights are not released through a unified platform, and no interaction with multiple data sources or cutting-edge analytics tools exists

Our Services

Patent/Non-Patent Literature Data Mining

Identify and list the group of patents/publications by manual or automatic mode, non-patent literature, commercially available products, and all other relevant materials relating to the technology domain. Standardization of the retrieved references and the bibliographic data is performed.

Patent Categorization

Categorization of a list of relevant patent or non-patent literatures into the various technologies or sub-technologies domains. The categorization is performed semi-automatically using the proprietary AI Based Tool.

Graphical Analytics

Provide relevant insights into the technology development over the years in terms of patenting activity and predict the future technology growth in the upcoming years. The insights are presented in the form of 3D, visual analytics relating to technology and its segmentation, IP basic trends, Citation Analysis and Competitor Analysis. The analytics can be illustrated by pie charts, bar charts, radar charts, bubble charts, line charts, area-based charts, and matrices.


Our Methodology

TTC team focuses on providing valuable, actionable insights based on comprehensive and detailed landscape analysis and helps to understand the contemporary and future trends in a particular technology and explore rewarding business product development opportunities.

Landscape analysis is an analysis of data that reveals business, scientific and technological trends. Landscape analysis is a concise report on the patent situation, and helps you gain current awareness of a given technology and help you formulate development strategies that would help you expand and improve on that particular art. Landscape reports typically focus on a single industry, technology, or geographic region.

Landscape analysis provides a map for navigating the competitive landscape, and is essential in establishing strong innovation identification, capture, and management programs at any enterprise.

It helps researchers and scientists learn about the current state of the art and learn important details about a given technology and potentially build, improve, or modify that art. It also helps to identify who are the important owners of the technology which further helps in considering potential mergers/acquisitions, licensing, etc. It helps to provide early insights into what competitors and their inventors have in the development pipeline and on what products competitors are betting which further helps to determine the phase of the technology.

It helps to identify technologies where potential innovations may be barred because of numerous patent references or broad patent claim language. Experts can assess new R&D opportunities by finding gaps in the landscape (patentability, novelty or “white space” analysis) and hence form an overview of how 'crowded' or 'open' a technological area is.

  1. Establish the purpose of the patent landscape analysis and identify the boundaries of the technology area of focus.
  2. Search, review, and refine the subject matter and perform further data clean-up and normalization
  3. Review and sort the patents within each relevant technology, product and/or application sub-category.
  4. Create charts/tables and visualizations providing the insights from the data.

The technological area is constantly evolving and the landscape changes significantly every now and then, therefore, landscape analysis does not hold valid for a long time. Also, comprehensive landscape analysis is costly, and not all companies can afford it.

Also, it is always a challenge to represent insights from such comprehensive and voluminous landscape reports and provide analysis that can be easily interpreted and consumed by the users.
