Patent Portfolio Management

"Creating and maintaining the volume, scale, diversity and balance of the portfolio are the keys to success."


Patent portfolio

For any organization to maintain its relevance and profitability, it should give equal amount of attention to its IP & patent portfolio, which is a significant factor of an organization’s value.

The business value of a company is based on a collection of patents i.e. Patent Portfolio. A decent patent portfolio comprises a reasonable number of patents that are mapped to business products. The strategy has to be in place to make use of unutilized patents by monetizing them.

Some patents may also need to be disposed of for cost savings. So it is really important to maintain and manage these patent portfolios properly, in order to obtain a better return on investment (ROI) for an organization.


Patent Portfolio Management normally involves technically segmenting the organizations patents according to their presence & influence in and around a particular technology. The segmentation will help you to identify the value of each individual patent family in a portfolio according to their technical quality, enforceability, offensive/defensive strengths & business value. This process involves in-depth analysis of each and every patent of the portfolio concerned and their technology. Based on the analysis, further strategic decisions can be initiated by the organizations. The Strategic decisions may include In-licensing/Out-Licensing of Patents, New R&D investments, or Pruning out unwanted patents.

Project Needs

This US Based electronics device company wanted us to perform custom patent portfolio analysis on it’s own patent portfolio which contains around 994 patents. The main objective of the analysis was identifying and segmenting more valuable patents from its portfolio.


DexPatent team worked on this project for nearly 60 days and the team analyzed the portfolio , the 994 patents were classified into 267 patent clusters and the patent clusters had been segmented into 5 types [core, supporting, out-licensable, emerging technologies and scrap patents]. Finally DexPatent delivered the report with 47 Core, 103 supporting, 86 out-licensable, 5 emerging tech, 26 scrap patent families.
