Out-licensing & Technology Transfer Support

Leveraging outlicensing to unlock value of patents...

In the last 15 years, licensing activity has registered consistent growth with royalty / licensing revenues of US firms increasing from $35 Bn in 1994 to $153 Bn in 2007 and value of cross-border licensing transactions (receipts) growing from $27 Bn in 1990 to $180 Bn in 2009 (annual growth rate of 9.9%).

Despite the above, licensing currently accounts for only 0.6% of US corporate revenues and most companies in high-income countries out-license less than 10% of their patents; thereby indicating that out-licensing still has significant potential for sustainable growth in the future.
