September 2016 Patent Transaction Market Outlook released by GTT Group Including the Q2 2016 Patent Market Index

Global Technology Transfer Group, Inc. (GTT Group), the world leader in patent transaction and patent related advisory services, today makes available the Q2 2016 Patent Market Index (PMI®) and Patent Licensing Index (PLI®) in the September 2016 Patent Transaction Market Report.

The PMI® returned to the same range displayed during 2015, landing at 100.62, an 8.5% decline. Secondary patent assignments also returned to the range of 2015.

“The Q2 2016 PMI produced the largest quarterly decrease since the third quarter of 2014 and highlights current market volatility,” says Michael Lubitz, CEO and Chairman of GTT Group. “We believe there is a high probability for further downward movement in the third quarter as transaction momentum shifts to the fourth quarter.”

The PLI® (Patent License Index) followed the trend of the PMI and secondary markets, but remained in the steady index range of previous quarters since the index introduction in 2013 even with the Q2 decline. RPX remained as the top Most Active Deal Maker for Q2 2016, followed by Intellectual Ventures.

GTT Group’s Patent Deal Alert Service was announced over the summer and is available through complimentary subscription basis.
