Cipher’s Age analysis provides insight into the portfolio's maturity and pending pipeline, providing a view on the length of time the patent grant or application has been maintained for.
The X axis shows the number of years since priority date, and the Y axis indicates the number of either granted families, pending families, or both, that are of that age.
Hovering over any point will show the number of families that fall under that age bracket i.e. 12 years since priority date.
You can use the timeframe slider to adjust the years shown in the chart.
To view age according to the technology area, click ‘Technology’ above the chart.
If you want to restrict the view to e.g. Pending applications only, select the option from the drop-down menu above the chart:
To compare the portfolio age of two or more organisations, select the organisation from the sidebar on the left under ‘Organisations’. This will populate the visualisation or table you see on the right.
Click through on any data point on the chart to expose a list of the underlying data.
