How the battery companies tackle the challenges of post Li-ion batteries ?
Energy storage market has been booming since the 2000s. Battery market is dominated by Lead-acid and Li-ion batteries. However, the diversifying number of battery applications and niche markets lead to special requirements in terms of capacity, energy density, power density, self-discharge stability, cycling stability, operating temperatures, morphology/weight, safety, and cost constraints. One way to meet market performance expectations is to develop post Li-ion battery technologies. During the last years, new battery technologies emerged (Na-ion, Li-S, Li-Air, Mg-ion) and could be commercialized within the next 20 years. These post Li-ion technologies have to overcome numerous challenges to achieve better performance/cost than Li-ion batteries, leading to significant research attention, and patenting activity at all supply chain levels (electrodes, electrolytes, cells).
Major companies such as LG Chem, Samsung, Toyota, and Dyson are already developing their patent portfolio on these emerging technologies confirming post Li-ion battery market potentiality.
The entrance of key battery players and the proliferation of emerging technologies have led to a complex technology and competitive landscape that is essential to understand. Patent analysis is very complementary to market research to deeply understand what is going on in post Li-ion battery field, identify cutting-edge technology developments, anticipate changes, early detect business opportunities, and understand competitors’ strategies.
The Post 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 battery technologies (Redox Flow, Na-ion, Li-S, Li-Air, Mg-ion) 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).
