Global Technology Transfer Group, Inc. (GTT Group), the world leader in patent asset analysis and monetization services, releases the Q3 2011 Patent Market Index (PMI), an index tracking patent transaction activity and trends in the patent marketplace.
The GTT Group Q3 2011 PMI rose for the sixth straight quarter, up to 98.1 from 91.7 at Q2 2011. This rise of 6.4 points continues the upward trend since 2010.
“The gain demonstrated by the current PMI reflects the momentum across mobile communications and related technology sectors,” commented Michael Lubitz, CEO and Chairman of GTT Group. “This increase in the PMI should continue into the first half of 2012. The Q3 2011 increase was fueled by transaction volume in the mobile and related sectors.”
Notable transfers in Q3 2011 rose over Q2 2011 as IBM completed transfers to Google. Transfers in wireless broadband, mobile communications, microlithography, and flash memory contributed to the rise.
