Status of the Battery Patents: 2017 Patenting Activity - 30,400 New Patent Families, 30,900+ Patents Granted & 6,400+ Patents Expired - ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN--()--The "Status of the Battery Patents 2017 Patenting Activity" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

In 2017, more than 30,400 new patent families were published, 30,900+ patents were granted, and 6,400+ patents expired. In such fast-growing and dynamic battery market, it is essential to track patents in order to anticipate changes, quickly detect business opportunities, and identify emerging research areas and cutting-edge technology developments. In this report, we reveal the main 2017 trends for battery-related intellectual property (IP).

We show an overview of the recent patenting activity (new patent applications, granted patents, expired patents), the main patent applicants, the major patent litigations, and the hot technological topics of the year, for each supply chain segment (electrolyte, separator, electrode, cell, pack/system) and each battery technology (Li-ion, Ni-MH, redox flow, Li-Air, LiS, Na-ion and Mg-ion batteries). The report includes a special focus on the most interesting patents of the year.

This report details the two ways envisioned by R&D players to meet market performances expectations: improve existing battery technologies and develop new battery technologies. Nowadays, lead-acid batteries and Li-ion Batteries are leading battery market. Li-ion battery is a mature technology but its performances can still be improved and its costs reduced, leading to a thriving IP activity.

Other technologies are commercialized for automotive and consumer applications (Ni-MH battery), stationary applications (Redox flow, aqueous Na-ion and Na-S batteries) and medical devices (Zn-air batteries). Within last years, new battery technologies have been developed (organic Na-ion, Li-S, Li-Air, Mg-ion and Al-ion batteries) and could be commercialized within next 20 years. Patenting activity on all these technologies is detailed in the report.

Useful Patent Database (>40,900 Patent Families)

The report also includes an Excel database containing >40,900 patent families of the main patent assignees and related to the key battery technologies. This useful patent database allows multi-criteria searches, including patent numbers, priority/publication dates, patent assignees, titles, abstracts, claims, legal status of patents, hyperlinks to original documents, and technical segmentation (electrode, electrolyte, separator, battery cell, battery pack/system, Li-ion, Ni-MH, Redox flow, Lead, Li-Air, Li-S, Na-ion, Mg-ion, solid-state).
