Third Quarter 2018 Review & Market Outlook Released By GTT Group, Inc., Including the Q3 2018 Patent Market Index (PMI®)

Wednesday, November 28th, 2018

Global Technology Transfer Group, Inc. (GTT Group), the world leader in strategic patent analysis and patent transaction services, today makes available the Q3 2018 Patent Market Index (PMI®) and Patent Licensing Index (PLI®) in the Third Quarter 2018 Patent Transaction Market Report.

The PMI® declined for the second consecutive quarter to 89.91 points in Q3 2018, a 2.9% drop, but remained above the Q4 2017 low point. The quantity of secondary patent assignments regained ground with a 2.4% increase to 1,926, well within the range of most quarters since Q3 2015.

“The PMI fell again in Q3 2018, but appears less volatile compared to previous downturns,” according to Michael Lubitz, CEO and Chairman of GTT Group. “It is likely the market will continue with lower volatility over the next several quarters as smaller asset transactions will constitute the majority of deals. This is not a new trend and further declines in the PMI are likely.“

Samsung, BCS Software, and SuperD Technology shared the top position in the Most Active Deal Maker category of Q3 2018, with a long list of companies sharing the second position. The most active sellers included AT&T, Japan Display, Sharp, and GE.

Immediate updates on specific patent deals are also available using GTT Group’s Patent Deal Alert Service through subscription.
