How the battery players will overcome challenges to reach a full EV world?
Worldwide demand for energy storage devices has been booming since the 2000s, leading to a very dynamic battery market. Li-ion batteries have become the technology of choice for many applications, ranging from portable consumer devices and electronic devices to electric vehicles and more. According to Yole Développement, the rechargeable Li-ion battery cell market will be worth $59.1 billion by 2022, thanks to a 20% CAGR from 2016–2022.
Li-ion battery technology developments are driven by the growing interest for hybrid and electric vehicles. These applications require the improvement of battery performances in terms of capacity, energy density, power density, self-discharge stability, cycling stability, operating temperatures and safety without forgetting cost constraints. Thus, Li-ion batteries have attracted significant attention at all supply chain levels (electrodes, electrolytes, separator, cell, pack and system) over the last 10 years, resulting in intensive patenting activity, with a substantial recent increase.
With an increasing number of players and a proliferation of battery technologies and materials, patent analysis is very complementary to market research to deeply understand what is going on in Li-ion battery field, be ahead of technology trends, anticipate changes, early detect business opportunities, and understand competitors’ strategies.
The Li-ion batteries patent monitoring service allows you to take advantage of a monthly-updated Excel file and benefit from both quarterly analysis reports and direct interaction with our analysts. The monthly Excel files include new patents, patents expired/abandoned, patent transfers (re-assignment, licensing) and patent litigation/opposition. The patents are categorized by technology segments including Anode materials (Lithium metal, Silicon, LTO), Cathode materials (LFP, NMC, NCA, LiMPO4, LiMO4, LiNiMO2), Electrolyte (gelled/polymer, liquid, solid inorganic), separator, battery cell morphology (Thin film/Microbattery, Flexible, Cylindrical, prismatic) and supply chain position (electrode, electrolyte, battery cell, battery pack and systems). This useful Excel patent database allows for multi-criteria searches including priority date, patent assignees, claims, legal status of patents and technology segments. The quarterly reports provide the IP trends over the three last months, with a close look to key IP players and key patented technologies. The direct access to our analysts offers you Q&A session and open discussion on specific patented technologies or company IP portfolios.
Benefits of the patent monitoring service
Keep a watch on your competitors’ IP activities and their future intentions.
With the help of the patent monitoring service, you will be aware of your competitors’ current patenting activities, their IP dynamics, patent transfers including acquisitions and licenses, patent litigation, technology development and R&D strategies. You will also be able to early detect new entrants in your business area.
Keep track of the latest technology developments and be ahead of technology trends.
By keeping note of any recent patent filings, you can track the newest innovations in the field. You will get details on claimed inventions and you can follow technology developments. New technical solutions could inspire and improve your R&D activity.
Prevent registration of IP rights that may be harmful to your business.
You will obtain information on patent applications filed even before exclusive rights have been granted and you can react in time to prevent registration of IP rights that may be harmful to your business.
React in time to infringements and mitigate legal risks.
Monitoring newly-issued patents allows you to regularly assess your freedom-to-operate, ensuring your products or processes are not covered patents and thus they can be manufactured, sold or used safely without infringing valid IP rights owned by others.
Take advantage of free technologies and decrease R&D project risks.
By tracking both expired patents and abandoned patents, you will be able to identify inventions entering the public domain that you can use safely for your development.
Understand the current IP trends and IP strategy of competitors
On a quarterly basis, the report will provide the IP trends over the three last months, with a close look to key IP players and key patented technologies. Main patent applicants and their inventions, blocking patents, promising patents and key patents newly expired or abandoned will be highlighted.
Access to the IP analyst
Take advantage of direct interaction with our analysts by phone call and/or email and get specific input for specific patented technologies and company IP portfolios through Q&A session and open discussion (100h a year).
