Ciphers Portfolio Size Datasets

The size section has 11 datasets allowing a wide set of analysis. Simply click the size section of your report dashboard to view all of the size charts available in your report.

You can add any chart in cipher to a saved list of charts by selecting the tick in the top right of the chart icon as shown below. To save your chart selections for review later on, click the 'tick' icon in the top left of your report screen and select 'save'. For more information on saved charts, click here.

Ciphers Portfolio Size Data is broken down into datasets providing analysis of:

  • Portfolio size - Count of Patent Families

    • by organisation

    • by technology

  • Portfolio size - Count of Patents

    • by organisation

    • by technology

The analysis you want to undertake, will determine the Portfolio Size chart you select. Below is a description of each chart type to help to choose the relevant ones for your analysis:

Portfolio Size by Family view

Active Families, By Organisation

The dataset above shows the total number of active families in your report (both pending and granted combined), split by organisation. The overall number is displayed in the key to the right, whilst the chart shows the percentage breakdown, illustrating who the biggest owners are across all of your report (if multiple technologies are included in your report, these numbers are aggregated in this chart).

In the first instance, this chart will show the top ten owners and how many active families they own, however you can extend this out to show the top 25, top 50 etc.

This chart is useful to understand who the top owners are of both pending and granted assets combined, across your whole report.

Active Families, By Technology

The dataset above shows the total number of active families in your report (both pending and granted combined), split by technology.

Active Families, by technology and status

This chart shows the total number of currently active patent families per technology split by granted (shown in green) versus pending families (shown in blue). You can also view this dataset in different views i.e. side by side granted versus pending bars, or absolute numbers as shown below:

This chart is useful to understand:

  • Is this a rapidly growing technology, or is relatively little being filed in this space now?

  • What can I project/predict about the size/ importance of this technology in the future?

  • Is my company focussing enough (or too much) on this area according to what the general trends seem to be?

Active Families, by organisation and status

This chart shows the total number of currently active patent families per organisation split by granted (shown in green) versus pending families (shown in blue). You can also view this dataset in different views i.e. side by side granted versus pending bars, or absolute numbers as shown below:

This chart is useful to:

  • Compare actual portfolio sizes overall, and then at the balance of pending and granted families within that

  • Does my organisation have as many families in the pipeline as my competitors?

  • Does it look like company 'x' has a lot of existing granted families but very little new stuff coming up in comparison to other key players in the technology space?

Expired Families, by organisation

The above dataset shows how many expired patent families organisations have or had. The key to the top right displays the total number of expired families corresponding to a colour within the pie chart. Whilst the chart itself displays the percentage level (of expired patent families 'owned') across the technologies included in the report.

In the first instance, this chart will show the top ten owners and the total number of expired families they own, however you can extend this out to show the top 25, top 50 etc.

Expired Families, by technology

The above dataset shows expired patent families organised by the different technology areas included in your report. The key to the top right displays these technology areas as well as the number of expired families associated with each of the technologies. Whilst the chart shows you the the percentage breakdown of expired families across all technologies combined.

In the first instance, this chart will show the top ten technologies (with the most expired families) however you can extend this out to show the top 25, top 50 etc.

Expired Families, by organisation and technology

The above dataset shows how many expired patent families organisations own broken down by the different technology areas included in your report. The y axis shows the technologies included and the x shows the organisations. Totals running along the bottom and right allow you to see the total expired families for an organisation or for a technology.

Both the organisations and technology lists will default to the top 10, however you can extend this out to show the top 25, top 50 etc.
