Benefits of a Patent Search

Test Of Inventiveness

Before paying the government fees for a patent, it is sensible to do a search to test the inventiveness of the product or process. It's the only way to know how likely it is for your patent to be granted. While you may be aware of a product’s commercial uses, it is entirely possible that a competitor has patented a product or process similar to yours, but not begun using it yet.

Improves Approval Chances

If a patent has been granted to a product or process similar to yours, it could cause your application to be rejected. Hence, you should be able to frame your application to reflect on how yours is different.
