IAC Program

IAC Market Intelligence

On a quarterly basis, IAC produces market intelligence known as Patent Landscape Reports. These are detailed and comprehensive reports (ranging for 100 – 130 pages in length), which provide data and patent information that identify gaps, trends, etc. to help you better understand risks and opportunities to make informed decisions as you scale and grow. 

While having access to data and intelligence resources is important, the analysis and the utilization of that data is what provides value to allow for sound decision making and effective business planning. One way that IAC members will benefit from the Collective’s data and research is through Patent Landscape Reports, which provide a snapshot of the patent position of a specific technology or for specific market players. 

Patent landscapes can help members understand the competitive positioning of their technology as compared to existing patent owners and market leaders, resulting in better R&D decision-making, IP generation, and accelerated insights to guide an overall business strategy. 

IAC’s team of experts will work with members to help them understand and best utilize the data to improve decision-making and identify priorities based on the data.

Wireless Power Transfer

Wireless power transfer is a powerful new technology that uses fields created by charged particles to carry energy between a transmitter and a receiver over an air gap and is therefore a great substitute for wiring on many electrical devices.

By 2029, the global wireless power transmission market is projected to reach $170B USD.

IAC’s report on Wireless Power Transfer explores various trends in the near-field wireless power transfer domain including inductive coupling, magnetic resonance, capacitive coupling and capacitive resonance.

Electric Vehicles Ecosystem

According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), achieving net zero CO2 by 2050 requires Electric Vehicles (EVs) to comprise approximately 60% of total sales by 2030.

Governments globally are actively promoting the development of EV ecosystems to address emissions from conventional vehicles.

This report examines the global EV industry, analyzing patents and identifying trends and gaps in innovation and commercial activities across EV battery manufacturers, component suppliers, vehicle manufacturers, and charging infrastructure providers.

Precision Agriculture

According to a UN report, the world’s population is expected to increase by about 2 billion people in the next 30 years which highlights the need to feed a larger population. This has led to an increase in the adoption of precision agriculture technologies. Precision agriculture uses a more integrated approach to respond to chronic labor shortages, increased demand, less farmland availability, and an aging population of farmers.

Energy Storage

Industry experts, environmental advocates, and policymakers agree on the compounding effects of each misguided industrial attempt and inadequate policies on reaching net-zero carbon goals by 2030.

We need coordinated efforts and actions to realize our set targets to decarbonize the economy. Changes must occur across technology sectors and industries, policies, investments in renewing legacy infrastructure, and microeconomic industrial activities.

The report provides strategic insights, i.e. risks and opportunities, and valuable information to assist your business and IP decision-making.

Data Centres

Data centres have become vital for the operation and continuance of service for any modern-day organization. They act as central hosts to modern organizations’ critical and, in some cases, proprietary applications and data.

A data centre centralizes many functions around IT operations and facilitates storing, processing, and disseminating data and applications.
