Medical Devices: Patent Filings & Innovation Trends
This report is commissioned to examine the global innovation & patenting trends across all categories of Life Sciences domain & Medical Devices, in particular, based on study of patent filings after 2003.
Patenting activity is very significant across the Life-Sciences domain consisting of Medical Devices, Pharmaceuticals & Bio-Technology. Looking at shear number of filings happening in this domain by enterprises of all sizes, universities and researchers, it becomes much vital to have a keen evaluation of the patenting activity to understand the innovation trends.
The initial research aims to give the readers a clear insight regarding the comparative patenting activity across all the three categories of Life Sciences. A closer look at the comparative patenting activity demonstrates a constant dip in Bio-tech & Pharmaceuticals whereas a consistent rise in Medical Devices category was observed.
