How are battery players getting ready for the solid-state revolution?
Li-ion battery developments are driven by automotive applications. One of the major drawbacks of the conventional Li-ion battery for this application is the use of flammable liquid electrolytes resulting in critical and major safety issues. This could be overcome by replacing them with a solid-state battery, using solid electrodes and solid electrolytes.
Solid-state microbatteries are already commercially available, but the materials and methods used for their manufacture are extremely difficult to translate into bulk-size battery manufacture on a cost-effective basis. Solid-state battery developments are accelerating, and several companies are announcing their arrival on the market in 2020-2025, resulting in intensive patenting activity at all levels of the supply chain (electrolyte, electrode, cell, pack and system).
With the growing number of players involved in solid-state battery development, the variety of newly established solid-state battery consortiums, and the strong interest of EV/HEV makers (Toyota, BMW, Volkswagen, Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance, Hyundai), the solid-state battery is likely entering a new era. In this context, patent analysis perfectly complements market research to offer a deep understanding of the competitive solid-state battery-related landscape, to anticipate changes, detect business opportunities early, get ahead of cutting-edge technology developments, and understand competitors’ strategies.
The Solid-State Batteries patent monitoring service allows you to take advantage of a quarterly-updated Excel file and benefit from both quarterly analysis reports and direct interaction with our analysts.
The up-to-date Excel files include new patents, expired/abandoned patents, patent transfers (re-assignment, licensing) and patent litigation/opposition. The patents are categorized by supply chain position (electrolyte, electrode, cell, pack and system), electrolyte type (polymer, inorganic/polymer, inorganic) and inorganic electrolyte materials (Argyrodite, Thio-LISICON, Sulfide Glass Ceramic, Oxide Glass Ceramic, Perovskite, Anti-perovskite, LISICON, Garnet, NASICON, etc.). 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 PDF reports provide the IP trends over the last three months, with a close look at the key IP players, newcomers, and key patented technologies.
Direct access to our analysts offers you on-demand Q&A sessions and discussion regarding trends, analyses, specific patented technologies or a company’s IP portfolio in the solid-state battery field.
Benefits of the patent monitoring service
Keep an eye 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 detect newcomers early in your business area.
Keep track of the latest technology developments and get ahead of technology trends.
By keeping note of any recent patent filings, you can track the latest 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 last three months, with a close look at key IP players, newcomers and key patented technologies. Main patent applicants and their inventions, blocking patents, promising patents and key newly expired or abandoned patents will be highlighted.
Access to an IP analyst.
Take advantage of direct interaction with our analysts by phone and/or email and get specific input for specific patented technologies and company IP portfolios through on-demand Q&A sessions and discussion (100 hours per year).
