The global patent analytics market size was USD 813.2 million in 2021. The market is projected to grow from USD 907.6 million in 2022 to USD 2,099.3 million by 2029, exhibiting a CAGR of 12.7% during the forecast period. The global COVID-19 pandemic has been unprecedented and staggering, with patent analytics experiencing lower-than-anticipated demand across all regions compared to pre-pandemic levels. Based on our analysis, the global market exhibited a decline of 11.1% in 2020 compared to 2019.

Patent analytics software is widely used to analyze, separate, and automate intellectual property (IP) searches. The rising number of patent filings across the globe due to increased R&D activities has fueled demand for analytics solutions. According to a World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) report, global patent application filings reached around 2,75,900 applications in 2020, increasing from 2,65,800 applications in 2019. Also, leading players in the market are focused on adopting technologies in analytics solutions to offer services such as advanced search and exploration. For instance,

  • In April 2021, Anaqua, Inc. launched the business innovation platform, namely Suite, which aims to enable inventors and companies to become more competitive by accelerating the innovative capabilities and procedures of the firm. The Suite is offered as part of the independent product AQX IP management platform, which serves all domains such as intellectual property, research and development, and product management.


Slowdown in R&D Activities Amid COVID-19 Slightly Declined Demand for Patent Analytics Solution

The emergence of COVID-19 has impeded the demand for advanced IP analytical tools due to declined research and development activities across several industries in response to restrictions imposed by several countries' governments on production, research institutes, innovation centers, and others.

In addition, several business sectors have shown a decline in revenue and loss of profit margin during the COVID-19 pandemic. Also, the demand for analytics solutions and services has declined owing to the budget constraints of small and medium organizations.

However, several leading patent analytics companies are planning to develop customized platforms for the healthcare sector due to rising innovations and investments in the healthcare and pharmaceutical industry amid the pandemic. The tools aim to assist end-users in the healthcare sector in storing and studying substantial medical records to understand the treatment of COVID-19 infectious diseases. Several government authorities are adopting advanced technology for understanding necessary treatment using the analytics software and platform. For instance,

  • In November 2020, Parola Analytics, Inc., an intellectual property research solution provider, launched the "Parola Patent Experts Edge" platform for helping its clients amid the COVID-19 pandemic. This client-focused solution has guidance from U.S.-based IP experts from a wide range of scientific and technical expertise at an affordable cost. These solutions were launched specially to provide valuable insight during the pandemic.

  • In June 2020, the U.S. National Institutes of Health launched an analytics platform to secure, store and study vast amounts of patients' medical record data about the coronavirus disease. The platform was named National COVID Cohort Collaborative (N3C), which helps scientists analyze and understand the disease's data and develop necessary treatments.

  • In May 2020, WIPO launched advanced intellectual property (IP) tool. It tracks and measures COVID-19 related intellectual property policy changes implemented by WIPO in response to the global pandemic. The advanced analytics service measures IP rights related to the infectious COVID-19 pandemic infectious disease.

Adoption of Cloud Computing and Intellectual Property (IP) Management Platform to Boost Growth

Several organizations are adopting cloud computing to simplify their business operation as the cloud can store vast amounts of data. Key players in the market are focused on adopting advanced technologies such as cloud computing, Big Data, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to provide analytics tools. For instance,

  • In May 2021, the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) released a new cloud-hosted WIPO IP Office Suite. The tool intends to increase partnering intellectual property (IP) offices' security, dependability, and efficiency.

Key players in the market are investing in adopting cloud computing technology and gathering funding to develop advanced analytics platforms to meet IP laws. For instance,

  • In March 2021, PatSnap announced that it received USD 300 million in Series E investment. Tencent Investment and SoftBank Vision Fund 2 led the investment round with existing investors Vertex Ventures, Shun Wei Capital, Sequoia China, and CPE Industrial Fund.


Increasing R&D Investment and IP Rights Filings per Year to Propel Market Progression

Rising research and development (R&D) activities in healthcare, manufacturing, IT & telecommunications, and others have accelerated the demand for analytics tools. End-users in these industries invest significant amounts in filing IP rights for their innovative products before launching. These key factors create ample opportunity for prominent market players in the market. For instance, according to Samsung Electronics 2020 business report, in 2020, the firm invested around USD 17.98 billion in R&D and registered 6,648 Korean and 8,520 U.S patents. In addition, the firm holds 197,749 patents across the globe.

Similarly, in 2020, major companies such as IBM Corporations and LG Corporation added around 9,435 and 5,112 patents. An increase in IP filing by the leading players is expected to boost the patent analytics market growth.


High Transactional Costs Associated with Software and Services to Impede Market Growth

Patent analytics software is used for commercial IP right searches and negotiating services. This software entails a huge deployment and transaction cost that has impeded patent application demand around developing nations. For example, the price of patent analytics solutions and services offered by players such as Gridlogics, Harrity & Harrity, LLP, and others ranges from USD 1,000 to USD 5,000 per year depending on the type of patent searching and filing applications.

Further, according to PatentSight GmbH, businesses would spend USD 5.1 billion on annuity fees to preserve their portfolios at the world's top ten patent offices in 2020. The 166 firms with the maximum expensive portfolios would receive a portion of all annuity fee payments, of which 50 businesses alone spend USD 1.3 billion. 


By Component Analysis

Growing Demand for Customized Services by SMEs and Large-Scale Enterprises Drives Growth

Based on component, the global market is bifurcated into solution and services.

The solution segment will likely gain a major proportion of the market during the forecast period.
