CambridgeIPâ€™s analysis of the densely populated graphene patent landscape reveals a surge in patent activity from 2007 by major corporations, leading nanotechnology research institutes and SMEs around the world. Grapheneâ€”the first 2D crystal discoveredâ€”possesses highly unusual electronic, optical and mechanical properties, and is of interest across industry fields as diverse as semiconductors and biotechnology. CambridgeIPâ€™s IP Landscape research confirms that graphene technology systems can be complex, relying on other technologies and processes.Â Our work also reveals that many of the end-use sectors for graphene are relatively patent intensive.Â These features of the technology space contribute to the formation of a complex and intense patent landscape.
In addition to our work assisting policy makers, major investment groups, VCs, service providers, academic research institutes & individual inventors, CambridgeIP has produced a series of IP reports inspecting Corporate and University patent activity, and exploring the â€˜disruptiveâ€™ implications of graphene across a range of technology fields.
