Fusion of new technologies and convergence has led to the emergence of new industries. This paper aims to present experiences of the concept of convergence from a patent citation analysis viewpoint. The main objective of the paper is to develop a tool for anticipating the emerging new industry segments.
The patent analysis methods have been used to get an idea of the stage of new industry segment in the intersection of the paper and electronics industries. The authors distinguish self‐citations from external citations, and further divide citations into two groups: within the industry and beyond the industry. Backward citations are used to evaluate the spill‐overs between industries and forward citations are used to evaluate the significance of technology‐based industry transformation.
The recognized trends of the trajectory changes and growing overlaps of technological fields show indications for possible convergence between industries. Differentiating between external and self‐citations within and beyond industry citations helps to provide more comprehensive prospects of a future technology competitive environment.
This study evaluated technology development in converging environments. It would be a scientifically significant contribution if the novel patent analysis methods could be used effectively for creating understanding in advance about the technology development and industry convergences.
The presented patent citation methodology provides new insights into the analysis of industry evolution, technological innovations and business development related to converging industries and technologies.
President Bush recently announced that Northern Telecom had received a presidential award recognising innovation and leadership in protecting the environment. Fulfilling a pledge made in 1988, Northern Telecom became the world's first large electronics company to meet a public commitment to eliminate ozone‐depleting CFC‐113 solvents from its 42 worldwide manufacturing operations. The goal was achieved nine years ahead of the mandate set by the Montreal Protocol, an international agreement signed by 68 nations that calls for the elimination of CFCs and other ozone‐depleting substances by the year 2000.
