Global Technology Transfer Group (GTT Group) Releases December Patent Market Outlook and Q3 2012 Patent Market Index (PMI)

Global Technology Transfer Group, Inc. (GTT Group), the world leader in patent transaction advisory and patent analysis services, releases the Q3 2012 Patent Market Index (PMI), an index tracking patent transaction activity and trends in the patent marketplace.

The Patent Market Index grew 13.1 points in Q3 2012 over the previous quarter, from 96.5 to 109.6. The Q3 2012 PMI continues the steady growth trend set since Q3 2009.

“One important indicator of the current quarter PMI strength is the significant number of small and medium sized transactions,” explained Michael Lubitz, CEO and Chairman of GTT Group. “Our expectation when reporting the Q2 2012 PMI was for a significant uptick in Q3 and Q4, and it came through for Q3. We remain optimistic to report continued growth in Q4 through the first half of 2013. ”
