What data do you provide?

PatentSight is a big data innovation analytics company from Germany. We source worldwide patent data and apply a unique algorithm to assess patent quality - and hence the innovative strength of the companies owning these patents. We are able to early identify technology trends and disruptive innovations, and to provide exclusive insights into a companies’ R&D strategies.

In the ESG-context, PatentSight’s unique innovation KPIs help investors identifying companies adapting to climate change from a technology perspective. Among others, we provide metrics for ESG-screenings (positive/negative) and impact investing.

All of our ESG-innovation metrics are forward-looking and scientifically-proven.

Where and how do you source your data?

In a first step, we source global patent data directly from the patent offices, allowing for worldwide innovation analysis. Our database has a coverage of over 100 million patent documents. Private and stock-listed companies with patent portfolios are available for analytics.

In step two, we work intensively on the data quality. Every patent in our database is checked for validity and remaining lifetime. Furthermore, all patents are connected to the companies that currently own them, so that investors can assess who has the commercial power over the inventions.

In step three, the relative business value of every patent is calculated by a unique algorithm. The evaluation approach is based on scientific research and has been published in a peer-reviewed journal.

Who are the data users?

Global blue-chip clients across industries (e.g. tech, pharma, chemicals, engineering, energy), discretionary and quantitative investors, and authorities such as the EU Commission
