White Space Identification

Where are the big entry opportunities?

SPA’s clients use white-space analyses to identify spaces where there is room for technology development, patentability or freedom-to-operate. These analyses help clients find new opportunities, e.g., potential product features or combinations of features that no company has targeted, important applications of a known technology that are yet to be explored, new technologies that are emerging or pre-emptive IP strategies that could be pursued to constrain competition. Conducting such analyses requires an in-depth knowledge of the technology area and an understanding of key technology parameters that matter. SPA’s technical experts study the technology space in detail to understand core dimensions of technology that matter, and then develop cross-feature maps that highlight white-spaces.
