Cooperative network analysis of patent holders in the field of OLED technology
With the continuous development of science and technology, the number of patents continues to increase. At the same time, patent cooperation is more normal. It is particularly important to analyze the cooperation relationship among patent holders. The application of social network analysis methods solves this problem. OLED tends to gradually replace LCD. South Korea's Samsung and LG hold the majority of patents in the OLED field. How to break through has become a problem faced by Chinese companies. This paper uses the degree centrality, betweenness centrality and closeness centrality in the social network analysis method, and uses the data visualization tool Ucinet to systematically analyze the OLED technology patents from the Derwent Innovation Index. The results show that there is a clear trend of cooperation among patent holders in the OLED technology field. China's OLED enterprises should speed up the industrial chain layout, increase relevant R&D investment, and improve the R&D intensity of core technologies.
