Today, the major part of the value of a company - on average over 80% - consists of intangible assets. Patents are among the "most tangibles among the intangibles": they can be borrowed, sold, licensed, for example. Companies use them to protect innovations from imitation and as a strategic instrument to keep competitors out of the market or to ensure a strategic balance of power.

Accordingly, patents also allow a deep insight into the R&D activities of companies and reveal much about the planned future and potential capabilities. However, this requires a quality measurement or, even better, a value assessment in order to obtain reliable information. The sustainability efforts of companies can also be supported, substantiated or questioned with patent value analyses.
