Have your say on current trends and challenges in the global IP market

The 2018 IAM benchmarking survey - designed to shine a light on the key issues in the IP marketplace by drawing on insights from our corporate and private practice readers – is now underway.

In the questionnaires (there is one for IP owners and one for legal practitioners), which take around 15 minutes to complete,  we ask for views on issues like litigation, patent valuation and monetisation, IP office performance, policy developments and other important topics. The results of our 2017 survey can be found here.

We invite all our readers working inside IP owning organisations or law/attorney firms to take part in this year’s survey in order to help us – and the IP community – better understand the threats and opportunities which currently confront IP professionals.

To say thank you, we will enter all participants into a draw to win a free delegate place at this year’s IPBC Global in San Francisco.

  • If you work in an IP-owning company, please click here to complete your survey.
  • If you are a private practice lawyer or attorney, please click here to complete your survey.

Your answers will be treated as strictly confidential.


Selected results and analysis will be published on the IAM website and in the magazine in June.

The closing date for receipt of survey responses is 18th March.

Should you have any questions about the survey or experience any technical difficulties, please do not hesitate to contact me at [email protected] .

New subscriber offering coming in March

Big changes are on the way for the IAM platform: from March we will be providing subscribers with even more detailed analysis of and intelligence about developments in the global IP market, as well as giving them an exclusive first look at the IAM Patent 1000 2018 rankings. While some content will remain free to view, non-subscribers will lose automatic access to the intelligence, analysis and data that we publish daily, and will not be able to view much of the new material that we will be offering to subscribers.
