Global Technology Transfer Group, Inc. (GTT Group) Releases November Patent Market Outlook and Q2 2012 Patent Market Index (PMI)

Global Technology Transfer Group, Inc. (GTT Group), the world leader in patent asset analysis and transaction advisory services, releases the Q2 2012 Patent Market Index (PMI), an index tracking patent transaction activity and trends in the patent marketplace.

The GTT Group Q2 2012 PMI revealed a retrench in patent activity after nine quarters of unparalleled growth, returning to 96.5 in the second quarter of 2012. This is consistent with the Q2 2010 pattern of seasonal lag after reaching a Q1 2012 high of 107.0.

“This decrease of 10.5 points, a 10 percent decline, to 96.5 from the Q1 2012 PMI of 107.0 reflects a reduction in the overall number of assets that changed hands during the quarter,” commented Michael Lubitz, CEO and Chairman of GTT Group.
