The IPSCIO 2020 Royalty Rate Industry Summary provides benchmark royalty rate measures covering 15 industries from over 30 years of data. Average, median and interquartile range (IQR) royalty rate measures by industry are included.

- Media & Entertainment
- Medical/Health Products
- Pharmaceuticals & Biotechnology
- Energy & Environment
- Electrical & Electronics
- Computers & Office Equipment
9,318 royalty rate observations were analyzed. There are fewer transactions in the summary than the total number of transactions in the RoyaltySource® database for several reasons.
- Only technology licenses from public sources are included. Trademark, copyright and right of publicity license transactions are eliminated.
- Many transactions do not fit in the 15 industry groupings chosen to report.
- Other transactions are eliminated because they have a royalty base of something other than a variation of sales.
The summary continues to grow annually and is occasionally refined as additional information is obtained resulting in transactions moving from one industry group to another.
This edition also features a condensed view of technology royalty rate data in waste remediation and recycling, such as water, wastewater and air pollution, offered in our Environmental Services Industry report. This Expert Report is part of a series looking closer into technology and trademark licenses. The bundle of records employed in each report are available to purchase by request.
