Can an Analysis Result Be Reproduced Exactly at a Later Date?
Since patent data is "alive" and the PatentSight database is constantly being updated and improved, the exact reproduction of analysis results from the past may not be possible at a later point in time. However, you can save your search results and your analysis results by using one of PatentSight’s export options. It may also be useful to regularly tag the set of patent families obtained as se...
How are the Competitive Impact Deciles in the Value Distribution Chart Calculated?
The Competitive Impact deciles are formed by sorting all active patent families in the PatentSight database by their Competitive Impact and subsequently dividing the patent families in this ranking into ten equal groups from the top to the bottom. As a result, the global top 10% of the patent families by Competitive Impact form the Competitive Impact decile "10", whereas the global bottom 10% o...
How Can the Technology Relevance Have a Positive Value if the Market Coverage is "0"?
While a patent family might no longer be protected in any authority and therefore have a Market Coverage and Competitive Impact of "0", it still may be significant for subsequent art, as expressed in the citations it still receives or has already received from other patent families. Therefore, the Technology Relevance is calculated for both active and inactive patent families even after the exp...
The Market Coverage is an indicator of the size of the global market in which the patent family is active. It is calculated on the patent family level based on the gross national income (GNI) of each authority in which the patent family has at least one active member. The GNI of the USA is represented by the value "1" and the GNIs of all other authorities are represented by values relative to...
The Technology Relevance is an indicator of the technological importance of the patent family. It is calculated on the patent family level based on the number of subsequent art citations (forward citations) the patent family has received. The number of citations received by the patent family is adjusted by three factors: the patent office citation practices, the age of the patent family, and ...

PatentSight allows you to determine the overall remaining annuity fees of a patent family or a patent portfolio. The calculation is based on annuity fee data from 40 patent authorities. You can find out the entire fees that would occur if a patent family or a patent portfolio was maintained for its remaining lifetime. Alternatively, you can also split the fees by year and by authority. Attrib...
Introduction Custom fields allow you to insert your own data into PatentSight and to analyze groups of patent families predefined by you. However, in contrast to tags, custom fields not only support mapping of text information but also mapping of numeric information to patent families – all you need to do is to import such information into PatentSight. With custom fields, you can map your own t...
How to Use Custom Fields
