Some of the most important benefits of a provisional patent application are-

Establish an early filing date
Give additional time to perfect the invention or work on improvements
Determine whether there is a market for the product or process that is being patented.
To delay filing and prosecution costs to a later date.
Include sufficient detail to support claims in a later-filed non-provisional application.
Permits the applicant to mark a product as “patent pending.”
Gives protection against public disclosure provided that a complete non-provisional application is filed shortly thereafter.
