Analysis of Derwent patent data conducted by Clarivate Analytics indicates startups in the US, Canada, and Australia are the market leaders in the research and commercialization of cannabinoids
PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Clarivate Analytics, the global leader in providing trusted insights and analytics to accelerate the pace of innovation, today launched the Money in the Pot report, a comprehensive analysis of patent data and activity in the global cannabinoid market from 2005 onward.
Utilizing the authoritative and accurate patent data from Derwent World Patents Index, the report explores the innovative use of cannabis and commercialization of the plant in the context of progressive global deregulation. Changes in the regulatory environment of countries like the US, Canada, and Australia act as the catalyst for new ideas in cannabinoids, particularly patents delivering innovations in cannabidiol (CBD), a key ingredient in the marijuana plant, for therapeutic and commercial use.
Mark Markley, Patent Analyst at Clarivate Analytics said: "Analyzing data provides a powerful viewpoint into innovation trends. The cannabinoid market is unique, showing an unusual pattern of sharp decrease in patent activity followed by a significant recovery. In the timeline of global cannabis innovation, 2012 is a pivot point. Deregulation in parts of the US sparked a shift in the cannabinoid market from therapeutic-centric innovations originating from large pharma companies to dynamic startups focused on delivering commercial innovations for recreational uses such as cannabis-infused sodas and vape pens."
