Patent landscape analysis is a multi-step process
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
Background analysis of patents for better understanding of technology area
Shortlisting relevant patents and non-patent portfolios after the quick screening of the citations for the given technology
Semi-automated analysis of the extracted dataset to categorize them in various sub-fields of technology
Insight discovery, including top companies, top inventors, technology evolution, top R&D and market locations, prominent problems and solutions, risk assessment, areas of future development, technology gaps, and many more
Client appreciated the work done and analytics extracted. Thank you for your delivery. It was really appreciated it from R&D.
Client was immensely impressed with the work product. He specifically mentioned that the work done by TTC in this project was of good quality.
TT Consultants' insights enabled our company to identify opportunities for process improvement, frame new market expansion strategies, and identify IP and marketing blind spots. Your company’s work met our expectations. We are impressed with the quality and quantity of the reports.
I recently worked with TT Consultants on a Landscape analysis project, and was immensely pleased with the work product. I had a discussion with the R&D as well. The team is really impressed with the results. We are using the landscape analysis report as a reference from time to time.

Patent landscape analysis is a multi-step process
“Internet of things (IoT)” is a concept
The way new technologies and innovations are
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.
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.
