Patent Valuation

Patent valuation reports are instrumental in determining the value of one or more patents within a company’s patent portfolio, utilizing multiple parameters. These reports assess various indicators to define the strength and significance of a company’s patent portfolio. Some of the key parameters considered are:

1. Patent Activity: The overall number of patents in the portfolio and the rate of patent filings over time.

2. Technology Share: The extent to which the company’s patents cover specific technological domains.

3. Research and Development Emphasis: The alignment of patent filings with the company’s R&D focus.

4. Co-operation Intensity: The degree of collaboration and co-filing with other entities.

5. Share of Granted Patents: The ratio of granted patents to total patent applications.

6. Citation Frequency: How frequently the company’s patents are cited in other patents.

7. Relative Technology Share: A comparison of the company’s patent coverage against competitors.

8. Average Patent Quality: The overall quality and significance of the patents in the portfolio.

9. International Scope: The geographical extent of patent filings.

10. Technology Scope: The diversity of technology domains covered in the patent portfolio.

To determine the value of IP assets, we employ a multi-parameter “Rating & Scoring Approach,” resulting in a numeric score that reflects the overall strength and value of the company’s patent portfolio. This comprehensive analysis helps businesses make informed decisions about their intellectual property strategies, licensing opportunities, and potential investments.
