Motywy i bariery działalności patentowej przedsiębiorstw rodzinnych i nierodzinnych – analiza komparatywna

Łukasz Wściubiak


The aim of this paper is to identify differences in motives and barriers of patenting between family and non-family firms. In addition, the impact of selected features of the surveyed enterprises (ie. firm size, level of innovativeness) was also examined. In the study the results of a survey conducted among purposefully selected group of 48 manufacturing companies from Poland were used. Time range of research covered the period 2014–2016. The results of the research allow us to conclude that motives of patenting differ between family and non-family enterprises, and family firms are more likely to use patents for strategic purposes (eg. improving technological image or strengthening the bargaining power). In turn, the size of the company and the level of innovativeness turned out to be factors influencing the barriers of patenting.
