Measurable market insights and indicators based on patent data

From patent data to indicator-based information, and measurable market insights

Patents are a forward looking indicator and measure company innovation that will lead to a product within 2-5 years. A company with significant patent activity in a certain technology will likely develop and monetize a product in the coming years. Conversely, a company without patents is unlikely to play an active role in the specific activity in the future.

Therefore, we have quantified information about potential future markets that do not yet exist in standard statistics and financial data. Through the quantitative analysis of patents filed by companies, it is possible to gather intelligence on technologies and market trends. By further grouping these patents into understandable concepts, the layer of abstraction is removed, and future markets can be accessed. EconSight provides clarity by turning expert patent data into structured indicator-based information and measurable market insights for data-driven investment decisions. We ask who is active in Smart Factory, Virtual Reality, Brain-Machine Interaction, Personal Medicine, Precision Agriculture or Artificial Intelligence, and who is good in these technologies.

Major players trust the EconSight approach

First thematic Blackrock fund powered by EconSight  

The BlackRock iShares Metaverse UCITS ETF tracks the STOXX Global Metaverse Index and is the first fund to identify market leaders, innovators and specialists in the metaverse based on Econsight patent data.

EconSight has worked closely with Qontigo and Blackrock on the development of the index to identify the pioneering companies developing the Metaverse. The index relies on EconSight technologies, High Quality Patents, and Specialization Score methodology to select the top companies within the metaverse technologies. A special element of the fund is the intelligent combination of core and enabling technologies that make up the metaverse, ranging from 3D image modelling, avatars, blockchain, graphic processing units (GPU), non-fungible tokens (NFT) and virtual, augmented and extended reality – all developed by EconSight.

The index comprises 65 global companies ranging from the digital marketplace, gaming, healthcare, manufacturing, software as well as hardware and components.
