Share this page:

2020 was a whirlwind of a year with COVID-19 causing much disruption across industries. The Automotive sector was no exception and has been one of the most heavily challenged sectors by the measures implemented to adapt to the pandemic. As usual though, business must go on and we have seen this across industries. In December, Cipher moderated IAM’s Automotive Industry Review event which explored the year’s ups, downs and pivotal moments, while dissecting what they mean for 2021.

Take a look at our short video that delves into the year’s patenting and litigation trends. Key takeaways observed include a deep dive into specific technology drivers, a general increase in litigation and much more.

We also reviewed the hive of M&A activity across 2020 that you can learn more about by downloading the PDF below.
