White Space Analysis

Identification of the white spaces in the evolution of the technology curve is an activity of research and development departments where the main objective is to identify unaddressed challenges and turning challenges into opportunities for technology development, patentability or freedom-to-operate.

Prometheus IP conducts an in-depth analysis of patents relevant to a particular technology domain. We provide pictorial representations showing the technology growth and the white-space where further research and development can be done to gain a competitive edge and to carry out an incremental innovation for new product development.
