Today Global Technology Transfer Group, Inc. (GTT), the world leader in patent asset analysis and monetization services, releases the Q1 2010 Patent Market Index (PMI), an index tracking patent transaction activity and trends in the patent marketplace.
The Q1 2010 PMI continued quarter on quarter stability, with the PMI up from 58 to 60, but not showing consistent growth. The PMI now stands at double the same quarter a year ago and close to the scores of the second half of 2008, but it still tracks below the highs of 2007.
"Recovery continues to be fueled by mobile broadband infrastructure, devices, and applications," says Michael Lubitz, CEO and Chairman of GTT. "PMI should continue an upward trend for the remainder of 2010, but recovery will continue to be modest and incremental."
The PMI was developed using GTT proprietary tools to provide realistic market outlooks to GTT clients. These market outlooks include information on market activity and trending key statistics for determining current asset value and best use scenarios. These tools and the applied data provide GTT with the information to guide clients concerning the appropriate use of patent assets.
