e-Mobility technology - who owns the strongest patent portfolio?

Posted by Sarbani Chattopadhyay on Sep 13, 2019 2:50:57 PM

In the past weeks, we have learned who the main players (Top 20 patent owners) are, in terms of portfolio size, among firms developing e-Mobility technologies. We further ranked this group of innovators based on the size of their portfolios, number of active patents in their portfolio and also according to the legal status of active patents owned. What we haven’t looked at so far, is a comparison of these companies on the basis of the quality of their portfolios. 

Therefore, in this edition of #eMobility updates, we rank the firms that are developing e-Mobility technologies, based on portfolio strength as measured by their portfolio’s Patent Asset Index™.

e-Mobility technology - how to predict the portfolio of your competition

Posted by Sarbani Chattopadhyay on Sep 6, 2019 4:41:00 PM

Having seen in all of our previous blog posts on e-Mobility that more information is always better than little information, let’s take a look at the Top 20 patent owners in e-Mobility based on the distribution of ‘In force’ and ‘Pending’ patents within their 'Active' portfolio in e-Mobility technologies. Our previous post in this series discussed how these players ranked, in terms of their ‘Active’ patent portfolio in this technology. This week, we emphasize the importance of accurate legal status information, by differentiating Active patents into ‘In force’ and ‘Pending’.

e-Mobility - why is knowing the legal status of patents important?

Posted by Sarbani Chattopadhyay on Aug 30, 2019 4:26:19 PM

Having already seen a bird’s eye view of the technology field of e-Mobility and having understood why accurate ownership information is important when conducting patent analytics, we now want to show you how precise and up-to-date legal status information of the patents being analysed is important to get a transparent view of any competitive technology landscape. In this blogpost, we compare the same Top 20 companies from the previous posts in this series, only this time we consider the legal status of the patents owned by them.

"The competitor to be feared is one who never bothers about you at all, but goes on making his own business better all the time."
- Henry Ford

 

E-mobility is unquestionably on the rise. As patent analysis experts, we have seen this trend in the absolute and qualitative increase in patenting in this technology class (IPC & CPC – B60L). According to a recent study by the International Energy Agency, global electric car sales witnessed an astonishing 40% year on year growth in 2018. If this growth is maintained, it is not long before conventional combustion engine cars become a thing of the past like steam powered vehicles. In this context, Automotive OEM's need to ensure they have all the right information regarding this technology to be better prepared to face these changing times. Read on, to know how clean patent data and accurate analytics can provide the necessary insights to your strategic decision making process.
