Abstract

Industrial innovation based on intellectual property is a key process for creating competitive advantage in this globalized environment of knowledge economy. IP as a way of protecting innovation is becoming essential for both commercial and strategic objectives. Therefore, it is of importance to understand the global patent family portfolio which has been barely investigated systematically. The objective of this study is to measure degree of IP globalization based on different type of patent families defined in literatures. Also, it is observed that areas with extensive patent family coverages are consistent to industries or countries where IP is rigorously practiced for commercial or strategic purposes. Management implication are discussed in this paper to suggest a systematic way of how patent family can be analyzed to understand the globalized industrial innovation.
