  • 3. Why graphene? Graphene: A fast developing research-enabled technology space, encompassing a very extensive set of potential markets and applications. • Graphene is the first 2D crystal discovered, with unusual electronic, optical and mechanical properties. • Graphene is of interest across industry fields as diverse as semiconductors and biotechnology. • Many graphene technology applications are in sectors which are notoriously patent and litigation intensive Examples of graphene applications include: • Faster computers: More efficient transistors based on graphene could result in thinner computer chips which use less energy and work faster. • More sensitive and robust sensors: Biotech sensor devices, environmental monitoring, oil & gas sensors • Thinner and flexible displays: Flexible and transparent electronics • Tougher and more conductive polymer composites: Much like multi-wall nanotubes (MWNT), graphene polymer composites can make polymers and other products, like natural rubber, stronger and electrically conductive.
  • 4. Patenting flatland: Graphene - Overview• Our report ‘Patenting flatland: Graphene – Exploitation challenges’ builds on research and analysis around university graphene patent activity, recently presented in Nature Materials: Tannock, Q. Exploiting carbon flatland, Nature Materials, Vol 11, 2-5, (2012) – CambridgeIP research for Nature Materials around the graphene patent activity and collaborations of universities has been updated and extended to analyse the entire graphene patent landscape and focus additionally on the activities of major corporations and leading SMEs. In addition the report considers the impact of leaders in the publication of non-patent literature on the patent landscape – The report is 70 pages long and contains 45 tables and figures Corporate/University R&D networks• Our dataset ‘Graphene patents’ is an expert verified dataset of all graphene patents and patent applications globally recovered in our research – more than 2,000. All key patent information fields and all major jurisdictions are covered. Patent trends over time
  • 5. Graphene patenting trends• In the graphene patent landscape, there has been a surge in patent filings around the world in recent years. From around 2007, we observe a spike in the number of patent applications both from corporations and academic institutions.• The overall picture that emerges resembles that of the semiconductor and biotechnology industries and some early-stage technology spaces, including nanotechnology, which experience particularly high levels of patent activity.• Tannock, Q. Exploiting carbon flatland, Nature Materials, Vol 11, 2-5, (2012) Number of patents: Annual and cumulative University/Research Insitituions SMEs Multinational Other 900 800 700 Patents - yearly 600 500 400 300 200 100 0 Pre-2001 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 © 2012 Patent numbers in the past two years may be under-represented. Patent applications may remain unpublished for up to 18 months.
  • 6. Corporations in the graphene patent landscape• The largest corporate patent portfolios in the graphene patent landscape are held by Samsung and Sandisk, reflecting clear industrial interests in semiconductor and memory-related applications.• Key differences in corporate research and development (R&D) focus and commercial strategies can be inferred from corporate patent filings.• Network analysis from Tannock, Q. Exploiting carbon flatland, Nature Materials, Vol 11, 2-5, (2012) Samsung‟s graphene patent network Sandisk‟s graphene patent network
  • 7. Universities in the graphene patent landscape• Across all years, there is a relatively high patent contribution from universities and research institutes, consistent with other relatively early-stage and research-intensive technology spaces.• Table 1 highlights the most active inventors with university affiliations or collaborations, and shows strong track records of industry–university collaborations in both South Korea and the United States.• Table 1 from Tannock, Q.

  • 8. Technology Profile Reports: Overview • CambridgeIP brings its significant experience in building patent-based technology intelligence with leadingPatent trends over time technologists and investors to create Technology Profile Reports. • CambridgeIP‟s patent-based approach provides a different perspective to understanding investment inPatents are inter-related R&D, geographical distribution and size of markets, market value chains, how a technology area is evolving and what are the fundamental drivers of its long-term performance. • Our analysis helps readers identify and assess those technologies where commercial value is concentrated. Corporate/University Patents cost money and significant organisational R&D networks resources to secure and maintain. Patents can provide a useful indication of those technologies that patent holders are prepared to spend money to protect.
