Introduction

The concept of the "IP landscape" (IPL) has been attracting attention recently.

An IP landscape is not limited to patent information, but also integrates and analyzes business information (e.g., non-patent information such as papers, news releases, stock information, and market information). Intellectual-property-based business management is realized through the analysis of intellectual property information applied to the formulation of management strategies and business strategies. This is a comprehensive approach that includes but not limited to planning of open and closed strategies, selecting M&A candidates, searching for alliance partners, and formulating intellectual property strategies, through the exploitation of intellectual property information.

IP landscaping usually includes patent search and patent analysis. In patent search and patent analysis, it is important to grasp the market position of each company and the overall technological trends and development trends for each technology. More specifically, it is important to understand what intellectual property your own company and other companies hold, what the strengths and weaknesses of other companies are, and how other companies are trying to exploit their intellectual property. In other words, it is important to understand both the business strategy and the intellectual property strategy of each company.

After reading this search report, you may be interested in more detailed patent searches and patent analysis. We offer a service called Patent Integration, which is an integrated patent search and patent analysis service. With reasonable pricing and a simple user interface such that even beginners can quickly search for and analyze patent information by company or technology from a web browser, please consider using it for detailed patent searches, patent analysis, and IP landscaping.

Patent Integration has a patent-landscaping function that can visually represent a set of tens of thousands of patents/patent applications. This allows you to convincingly show the technical positions of your company and its competitors to your management and business strategists in order to formulate management strategies and business strategies.

航行技術, Changes in the Number of JP Patents/Patent Applications

The changes in the number of patent filings of 航行技術 over the last 20 years (JP) are shown below.

The change in the number of patents/patent applications is the most basic index in patent analysis. By examining the change in the number of patents/patent applications, you can see the status of technological development and R&D focus for each company or technology. It should be noted that since there is a one and a half year lag between the filing and the laying open of patent applications, it is not possible to analyze the situation more recently than one and half years prior to the present.

In this report, you can only see the change in the number of patents/patent applications by company or technology, whereas Patent Integration allows you to quickly compare the number of patent applications with your competitors in each technical field by cross-referencing with other keywords and patent classifications.

Counting of the Number of Cases using the Patent Mapping Function

By examining the change in the number of patents/patent applications, you can see the status of technological development and R&D focus for each company or technology.

You can select a graph type from the menu on the upper left. Data can be output as a file to the clipboard, or in CSV format or TSV format. You can also output graph images as files in the SVG, PNG, and JPG formats. For the terms of use when using the data, please see "About this Site."

Patent Landscape ({{ld.d.db_name | country_map: 'en'}})

Patent landscaping is a visualization of the distribution of patent filings (application focus areas) for each technical keyword. Mountains and islands indicated by heatmap contours represent clusters of patent applications filed, and red areas on the heatmap indicate many patent filings relating to the keyword.

The patent landscape for 航行技術 gives an intuitive understanding of what patent filings they have made and what technical position is to be established. By selecting filing year checkboxes and filtering, you can track their past filing trends (what technical area they have focused on).

By selecting applicant/patent holder checkboxes and filtering, you can visually grasp the technical areas of the filings for each applicant and the partnerships or alliances formed. Please use it as a guide for patent analysis and IP landscaping.

In addition, by visually representing the patent data in this manner, you can convincingly show the technical positions of your company and its competitors to your management and business strategists in order to formulate management strategies and business strategies.

In Patent Integration, you can check the specifics of a patent filing by clicking anywhere on the patent landscape screen. You can also quickly check the position of each applicant for each technical field by cross-referencing with other keywords and patent classifications. You can use it as a guide when considering hypotheses about each company's IP strategy on the IP Landscape. You can also use it for higher-grade intellectual property activities. It has reasonable pricing and a simple user interface that is easy for beginners to handle.

Visualization of Technical Position

The patent landscape allows you to analyze, without any hassle, what patent applications have been filed and what technical position is to be established.

Information on important patents (JP)

The following shows JP patents held by 航行技術 that have had an invalidation trial against them demanded or an opposition filed against them by a third party, and 航行技術’s JP patents/patent applications of high importance cited by Examiners in patent examination processes.

By noting the most important patents, you can obtain knowledge of the competitive business environment in which 航行技術 is placed (e.g., whether it is a fiercely competitive environment or an oligopolistic market and the like). In general, it can be understood that a company with a large number of demands for invalidation trials is developing their business in a business environment where IP disputes are common.

If you want to search for more detailed information, you can use Patent Integration to retrieve and download by company cited patents/patent applications or patents undergoing invalidation trials. You can quickly extract important patents from a patent set that includes multiple competitors by cross-referencing with other keywords and patent classifications. Please consider using it for searches for important patents/patent applications.

Search for Information on Important Patents

You can quickly search for important patents/patent applications, such as patents/patent applications that were cited many times and patents that have had invalidation trials demanded against them many times.

Glossary

Cited
Indicates that the patent/patent application has been cited (by Examiners) in notices of reasons for rejection in the examination process of other (Japanese, U.S., or European) patent applications. The higher the number of citations, the more important the patent/patent application is considered to be.
Request for invalidation trial
Indicates that a third party has requested a procedure to invalidate the patent. It is likely to affect the business of third parties and is considered to be of high importance.
Opposition
Indicates that a third party has filed a petition with the Patent Office to hear the validity of the patent again. Like the trial for invalidation, it is considered to be of high importance.
Information provision
Indicates that a third party has provided the Patent Office with useful information for examination for the patent filed. It is usually considered to be of high importance because it is done to prevent the patent from being granted.
Browsing request
Indicates that a third party has requested the Patent Office to view the patent bag (a set of documents exchanged between the Patent Office and the applicant). The bag is often checked prior to trial for invalidation, opposition, and provision of information, and is considered to be a highly important patent.
