Fuelled by concern for the environment and by governmental support, the clean technology sector is experiencing explosive growth with significant investment in technology innovation and accelerating patent activity. As in any new technology space, recent entrants are challenging large, established corporations while everyone jockeys for position in the burgeoning global market. Whether involved in solar photovoltaics, low-powered lighting technology, electronic power and environmental control systems or low-emission vehicles, companies and investors alike are struggling to stay abreast of new innovations in order to make informed technology and market development decisions and to guide research and development roadmaps.
Forward-thinking players are putting effort into monitoring competitive intelligence and managing the intellectual property created by their R&D activities, to sustain their competitive edge and ensure they are in a position to maximize the ROI on their innovation. As clean technology extends into higher volume consumer applications (e.g. home energy automation, smart appliances, battery and battery control technology, etc.) the stakes are further raised for effective intellectual property management.
TechInsights provides technical and competitive intelligence for companies in the clean technology sector and other high-growth industries coping with the rapid pace of innovation. We help clients understand broad industry and technology trends as well as how specific competitors have solved challenging technical/design problems.
And since the fundamental asset of all innovative companies is intellectual property, we provide services to ensure that IP is effectively managed – from ensuring patent quality, minimizing risk of infringement and responding to 3rd-party assertions, to defending markets and generating licensing revenues. For companies that have made substantial investments in R&D, proactive management of intellectual property is essential to maximizing return on investment and successful expansion beyond regional markets.
Levering two decades of experience in the intellectual property/patent analysis domain, TechInsights has performed a wide range of work relevant to the clean technology sector including an in-depth review of the solar photovoltaic field. This type of business intelligence report which encompasses a market assessment, investigation of underlying technology trends and a detailed survey of the patent landscape, is of interest to clean technology companies as well as investors in the sector. TechInsights’ global reach and perspective is particularly valuable to companies seeking to enter new markets or defend market positions.
When in-depth circuit or material analysis is required for competitive intelligence, design support or patent claims purposes, clients draw upon our deep expertise in cross-sectional techniques and delayering of thin films in silicon semiconductors including Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) to see crystal lattice structures and Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) to reveal surface texturing. At a system level, TechInsights has also performed technical analysis of construction techniques of industrial solar cell panels.
Our leadership in electronic product teardowns and silicon-based semiconductor reverse engineering is particularly relevant to the environmental control and low power lighting sectors. Among our extensive library of product teardowns exists data on both CFL and LED consumer lighting.
Like the top companies in other technology-driven industries, the leaders in the clean technology sector recognize the importance of insightful technical and business intelligence, as well as the necessity of effectively managing intellectual property. Rather than burdening scarce R&D resources to support these activities, companies turn to TechInsights for our advanced business and technical analysis, domain experience and global reputation for intellectual property management services.
