White Space Analysis

"White space is where unmet and unarticulated needs are uncovered to create innovation opportunities"



White space analysis is a process and tool that allows us to look at the landscape up and down the value chain with a new lens. It can help uncover opportunities that are not obvious, it can identify new openings untouched by competitors, or it can be considered part of what was traditionally deemed a remote, different industry or outside the boundaries of the firm. Some white spaces might have a little patenting activity and some might not even had any patenting activity at all. Our services will provide you viable solutions for all your innovation roadmap decisions.


In-depth patent mining combined with statistical analysis will help you identify this technology Gap/opportunity or White Space in a Particular technology area. DexPatent's white-space report of technology enables our clients to identify the future potential research areas. Our Clients will get charts showing technology growth and white-gap area where further R&D can be done to gain a competitive edge and to carry out incremental innovation for new product development. We help clients by our White Space Analysis Report to take well informed investment decisions when looking for growth in existing technologies.
