Diabetes Landscape: Market, Technology And Intellectual Property

Analysis and commentary include discussion of the patent and product portfolio coverage of key companies. There are significant research and product development areas where leading companies lack coverage.

Investigation of assignee by technology group and forward citations of key patents provides insight into the large number of players and identifies potential targets for acquisition.

The patent holding and status of the following companies is covered in great detail:

Abbott Arkray Bayer Becton Dickinson DexCom Insulet J&J Medtronic Nipro Novo Nordisk Roche Sanofi-aventis

This unprecedented combination of market, technology, and intellectual property information will provide a detailed look at the market and devices in this space as well as provide a perspective of the challenges and opportunities associated with diabetes.
