Global RFID Competitive Advantage from Patent Mining

A chart for PFS vs. CPP matrix obtained from patent data for a specific technology may be used to show a competitive advantage landscape in a global market place.

Here PFS (Patent Family Size) is the number of international families (foreign patent applications) for a specific technology sub-class divided by the total number patents for all classes and CPP (Cites per patent) is a mean value of citations received by a specific technology sub-class from subsequent patents.

A class with high value of PFS means that this technology sub-class may have be competitive in market share of emerging global market compare to other technology sub-classes.

High CPP value is often associated with important innovations, which are key to future development in technology innovations.

Thus a specific technology sub-class located in the upper right corner of the matrix chart (high value both in PFS and CPP) may can have competitive advantage compare to other classes in developing a successful market globally.

Research for the US RFID patent issued before January 1, 2009 shows that tag antenna, tag architecture, and reader protocol are the RFID technology areas that have a competitive advantage with the further development of international IPR.

As large retailers and security concerns are both increasing, organizations are making RFID tracking more stringent, thus propelling the growth of the market further.
