Guest blog: Patents in the biopesticide industry revealed

Who is applying for patents in the biopesticide industry? Rubal Walia of INDUS TechInnovations explains

Although synthetic chemical fertilizers occupy a large share of pesticide market, biopesticides are gradually gaining significance. We have been looking at the patent landscape as well as the trends and patterns emerging in the Biopesticide industry.

We studied the patent filings in this technology area to understand the investments and patenting efforts being made. The infographic below outlines some interesting trends such as the pace of progress over the last decade, the geographical distribution of patents, patent transactions between different organisations and top patent asset holders.

The report displays a steady increase in published patents over the years, with 2012 revealing a sharp rise. Geographically, the US and China have dominated this area in patents and applications, followed by Europe. In addition, Monsanto, one of the pioneers in developing genetically modified seeds, leads the race as the top patent asset holder, with more than 1,400 patents. Pioneer, a Dupont company, is close behind with more than 1,000 patents.

The report also indicates that Monsanto is among the top acquirers of patents, buying patents from companies such as D&PL Technologies, Pharmacia, and Ecogen. Rivals Bayer and Gibraltar Business Capital have also acquired a large number of patents. You can see more information in the graphic.

The infographic was produced by Relecura, a patent and portfolio analysis platform developed by INDUS TechInnovations.
