“Is my idea worth patenting overseas?”

We hear this question all too often, and we know that international patent protection can be an expensive and complex process.

To help those considering international patent protection develop their IP strategy, we’ll be providing a free Patent Analytics Report with every international type search (ITS).

This analytics report aims to provide Australian applicants with invaluable information to complement the results of their international type search report.

How can a Patent Analytics Report influence business or research decisions?

The analytics report provides an overview of patent filings over time and a list of the top applicants in your specific area of technology. You will also receive geographic information, such as where other applicants are located and where their patents are being filed. This information, paired with the results from the international type search, can help you decide on your international patent protection.

The information in the analytics report is provided for general information purposes only and should not be used as a substitute for professional advice.


My application and patent analytics report

Can I ask for more detail than what’s already included?

The analytics report is designed to provide a broad overview only. Our Patent Analytics Hub can provide comprehensive analytics services for universities and publicly-funded researchers on request. Alternatively, a registered patent attorney can direct you to commercial patent analytics service providers who will be able to assist if you require a more in-depth analysis.

How much will it cost?

The analytics report will be included free of charge with international-type search reports. Sometimes we will not be able to prepare an analytics report for technical reasons, and we will explain this in writing.

Provide your feedback

The free analytics reports were developed in consultation with applicants and IP professionals.
