Global Technology Transfer Group, Inc. (GTT Group), the world leader in patent transaction advisory services, announces the Q2 2013 Patent Market Index and October 2013 Patent Transaction Market Report. The Patent Market Index (PMI) tracks patent transaction activity and patent marketplace trends, and is reported quarterly in the Patent Transaction Market Report (PTMR).

The Q2 2013 PMI decreased slightly to 93.0 from the previous quarter index of 95.3. The 2.3 point drop in the index form Q1 2013 continues the steadying trend since 2010 with the PMI maintaining a 90 to 100 index range.

“The Q2 2013 PMI reflects a market equilibrium,“ remarked Michael Lubitz, CEO and Chairman of GTT Group. “We believe the current PMI level represents a market activity level reflective of selective strategic acquisitions.”

Acquisitions within mobile broadband and related technology areas continued to represent the bulk of market activity.
