Nanotechnology represents a cross cutting spectrum of technologies spanning many scientific disciplines and industry sectors. CambridgeIP observes a high inter-relation between nanotechnology patents relative to patents in other technology spaces, reflecting the complexity of many nanotechnology systems and the multiple technology and market areas that nanotechnologies potentially address. Our analysis of the nanotechnology patent landscape additionally reveals a marked increase in nanotechnology patent activity in Asia in the past several years.
CambridgeIP’s surveys of nanotechnology researchers, our nanotech patent landscape research and our work with leading nanotech R&D groups provide evidence of concerns in the nanotech community over nanotechnology patent thickets and blocking patents in nanotechnology.
Our team covers a broad section of the Nanotechnology field. We have developed particular expertise in the following fields:
- Carbon Nanotubes (CNT)
