All the requirements of IP success are met by ensuring that all relevant references are identified and analysed, that key market trends are identified and that a comprehensive report is provided to you.


Usually, innovators only do prior art search, and go for filing the patent application. But, this type of search is limited to collecting details about already invented technologies, and doesn’t include any information about market areas to which the technologies can be used in.

As an invention to be brought up in the market one day, checking the target markets, top players, existing products, etc. related to it is a plus. We at Scintillation Research and Analytics Services Pvt Ltd do market analysis along with patentability search; the former is for checking market information and latter is for checking novelty of the invention.

Thus, you can write more embodiments and get the claims, which perfectly align with upcoming technology trends. This helps in increasing the value and demand of your patent in the target market, creating maximum IP monetization opportunities.

We have a team of professional patent and market research analysts with extensive experience in protecting and monetizing intellectual property assets of individual innovators, students, universities, and businesses.


We personally believe that patents, which have claims matching with current market trends, customer demands, etc. are monetized easily, and earn inventors a lot of money. Thus, along with patentability, we study active markets pertaining to the inventions, helping the innovator get market sound patent claims.

This help in knowing what is already invented, and the areas innovator should focus on.
