GTT GROUP Releases 4th Quarter Patent Transaction Market Report (PTMR)

Portland, OR March 14, 2022

Global Technology Transfer Group, Inc. (GTT Group), a world leader in strategic patent analysis and patent transaction services, released its Fourth Quarter 2021 Patent Transaction Market Report (PTMR) this morning. The report includes the Patent Market Index (PMI®) and the Patent Licensing Index (PLI®).

The fourth quarter PMI dropped slightly (0.45%) but remains above the 2020 fourth quarter value. Michael Lubitz, Managing Director & Founder of GTT Group comments: “Overall Patent transaction volume saw a slight drop from last quarter, however this was offset by a higher percentage of larger sized deals. Key technology producers continued to grow their IP intensely in AI, 5G, Blockchain, and many other burgeoning sectors, but in this quarter they opted for wholesale acquisition to limit brokerage related expenses and time spent acquiring or divesting.”

The PMI or Patent Market Index decreased by .45% percent to finish the quarter at 110.3. While a drop, this level is still significantly above the 3 year average. Monitored secondary transaction volume decreased by 6.8% in the fourth quarter, reaching the lowest point since Q3 of 2020. However, like mentioned above, the magnitude of each deal has increased showing a trend towards large scale acquisitions. 

The PLI or Patent Licensing Index dropped by 5.8% in the fourth quarter. Despite the recent decrease, the PLI is still up over 12% for the year.
