We expect the remainder of the year to....continue to remain in the 100-plus range.
Portland, OR (PRWEB) October 29, 2014
Global Technology Transfer Group, Inc. (GTT Group), the world leader in patent transaction advisory services, announces the Q2 2014 Patent Market Index and October 2014 Patent Transaction Market Report. The Patent Market Index (PMI™) tracks patent transaction activity and patent marketplace trends, and is reported quarterly in the Patent Transaction Market Report (PTMR).
The Q2 2014 PMI™ continued the Q1 2014 rising trend and brought the index to 128.6 for the first time. GTT Group attributes the Q2 2014 PMI index gain of 8.5% to recording lags and deal momentum continuing through the first half of 2014. Patent Asset Transfers also recorded a second quarter historic high mainly due to a rise in secondary assignments.
“This rise is a continuation of the rebound from the lull in activity charted by the index during the last quarters of 2013”, states Michael Lubitz, CEO and Chairman of GTT Group. “We expect the remainder of the year to experience some downward adjustment in the index, but continue to remain in the 100-plus range.”
Intellectual Ventures succeeded Samsung at the top of the Most Active Deal Makers list. RPX Corporation, Tessera, Google Inc., Huawei, and Microsoft completed the list. Solid-state devices led the Class code activity list with double the number of estimated transfers during the quarter than the second-place class code for information storage and retrieval. More detail on these lists is available in the Q2 2014 PMI and through direct discussion with GTT Group.
