Abstract-- The purpose of this research is to examine the new product prediction by using the trademark information and the patent information. We have focused on the adding goods and services, and the suggestive trademark. The additional goods and services are added by the applicant. The additional goods and services are expected to include the information about the type of the new product. The suggestive trademark is expected to contain the information about function and effect of the new product. We analyzed the additional goods and services, and the suggestive trademark. As a result, it was found that the information useful in new product predicted can be extracted from the trademark information. In addition, we examined how to search for patents related to new products by using the trademark information. The information extracted from the trademark information can be expected to be utilized as a keyword. Furthermore, designated goods and services were found to be converted to IPC information. Consequently, it was found that keyword and IPC search using the information extracted from the trademark information is possible. By using the trademark information and patent information, it is expected that it is possible to highly accurate new products prediction.
