    Whitespace Analysis​

    Exploiting gaps in a technology landscape
    Whitespaces are gaps in a technology space with little or no-patenting activity that can be exploited identify the right and high growth opportunities, untapped by competitors. Using the ‘white space’, where there’s scope for innovation, to broaden the scope of your patents can greatly enhance your existing patent portfolio.

    We make this complex process of addressing the unknown much simplex through our 3D matrix analysis, where we dig deep into the existing patents and using different strategies we find areas for further R&D, new product development, category innovation and available markets.


    White Space analysis or Gap analysis is a methodology that identifies the absence of patents in a particular product or technology area as a primary driver of innovation decision-making.

    For companies in the early stages of product development, or a new technology program in a larger company, White Space analysis can be useful to identify “clear” or “white” space for R&D, as well as help chart patenting strategies. Many Technology and IP managers today look at white-space analysis patent as one of the key methods for strategic product innovation.
    White space search can assist companies to determine technology growth and gap areas within a particular industry, where further research and development can be done to gain competitive edge, as well as to carry out incremental innovation for new product development.
    The analysis we provide, at PatentsKart, helps our clients to refine their research methodology for exploring new areas for innovation and individuality, Further this analysis enhances patent portfolio, broadens scope of already existing innovations by locating gaps around your patent positions which should perhaps be included in the claim coverage.

    Competitor Landscape

    Competitor profiling to understand your competition

    Knowing the IP strategy of your competitors means you are aware of the market opportunities and threats to your market share. Competitive intelligence or an understanding of your competition can greatly help in strategizing your patent development programs.

    Competitor landscapes typically include business insights about your competitors, including those players that you may not know exist. The study comprises a primary research to gather statistics about the key players in the technology. We then extract patents in each competitor’s portfolio, followed by screening and classification to analyze their IP activity. We prepare unique ‘competitor portfolio score card’ that includes competitor profiling or portfolio breakdown in the technology of interest.


    While a company in the early stages of R&D should be aware of its closest competitors, a strategic competitive landscape may become more useful as a company gets closer to product launch. Often these landscapes go beyond the patent literature, and include analyses of competitors’ marketed products, recent publications, and other competitive intelligence.

    We, at PatentsKart, provide extensive competitive landscapes which help our clients visualize Taxonomy, Investment trends, R&D and marketing locations of their rivals by generating statistical graphs. In some cases, these landscapes may be used offensively to identify patents that may cover competitor’s products.

    Portfolio Management

    Patent ranking model to optimize your portfolio
    An organized portfolio is essential for monetization. Large un-organized portfolios are generally under-valued, difficult to manage and would definitely have patents with little commercial value.

    The process of portfolio management involves identifying strength & weakness of a portfolio, by categorizing patents as per the core technologies. This helps you identify the valuable set and uncovers several opportunities for monetization of non-core (or underperforming) patents. We use a scoring system that takes into account several pre-defined parameters such as legal status, forward citations, number of independent claims, technology advancement (claim scope), product coverage etc. The scoring model ranks patents as strong/weak or core/non-core, which helps to create an optimized portfolio that can be exploited for licensing and litigation purposes.

    •  Portfolio categorization
    •  Patent Ranking
    •  Portfolio Segmentation
    •  Portfolio Visualization


    Patent portfolio management is a process where a company can coordinate its patent strategy with its product strategy. The value of a patent portfolio should be measured to see the true value of a company’s patents. Timing is the key to patent portfolio management.
    The monetary benefits of a patent portfolio include a market monopoly position for the portfolio holder and revenue from licensing the intellectual property. Non-monetary benefits include strategic advantages like first-mover advantages and defense against rival portfolio holders.
    Portfolio mining is a process followed to identify valuable patents that can be used to generate revenue for any firm. Categorizing the portfolio such that each firm will be able to quickly and authoritatively evaluate the merits and value of each asset will then allow the best use of the firm.
    Patent visualization is an application of information visualization. The number of patents has been increasing steadily, thus forcing companies to consider intellectual property as a part of their strategy. Patent visualization, like patent mapping, is used to quickly view a patent portfolio.

    IP Due Diligence

    Mitigate risks to generate maximum value 

    IP due diligence is a systematic review of the target company’s portfolio to assess the quantity and the quality of IP assets. It is generally done to evaluate licensing opportunities – buying, selling or M&As, and to make critical IP investment decisions.

    Due diligence seeks to examine the strength and scope of patents in the portfolio, to determine the associated benefits and risks. Defined by your requirements, each project is customized to meet your business goals. Typically, the process involves screening hundreds of patents in the company’s portfolio using a defined scoring system, along with infringement analysis, validity checks, SWOT, competitor mapping etc.


    For a patent portfolio to be a truly successful, effective, and winning portfolio, a company must also strategically manage it to return profits and direct market trends. Therefore, companies regularly conduct IP audits to understand the full value of these imponderable assets and make the most of their potential benefits. IP due diligence is basically a review of the target company’s portfolio to assess the quantity and the quality of IP assets in order to evaluate licensing opportunities (buy or sell patents). It also includes an assessment of how intellectual property is captured and protected by the relevant company of business.
    This IP due intelligence audit is done when an investor wants to invest in any startup company, when a company wants to make to make critical IP investment decisions, during a company’s merger or acquisition.
    The major reasons behind getting an IP due diligence done are:
    • IP due diligence can help a company understand better what’s in its patent portfolio with the aim of enhancing the marketability of its products or services
    • IP due diligence helps to maximise the value of these intangible assets which can boost the company’s balance sheet
    • It helps in Portfolio visualization & comparison, identify monetization (licensing) opportunities, Patent acquisitions to build on strength
    • IP due diligence helps to reveal risks and allows the acquirer to tackle the issues pre-close
