Patent quality is an important factor affecting the industrial transformation and upgrading in China. Under the background of economic globalization, with the industrial innovation competition gradually evolving into the global industrial value chain competition, in addition to patent quality issues, the integration of industrial innovation has become a reality that must be faced by the industrial development of China. The effectiveness of innovative competitive intelligence analysis method is of great importance to the implementation of national innovation strategy and the influence of industrial development direction. This paper analyzes deeply the phenomenon of "problem patent" and "patent jungle" at home and abroad. To construct an analytical model based on the endogenous factors of innovation and the market as the criterion can effectively deal with the current situation of industrial innovation in China. Taking the innovation level of foreign industries as the benchmark, this paper puts forward a competitive analysis framework of industrial innovation from the perspective of patent quality. The framework is based on the impact of patent jungle on the development of industrial innovation, and takes patent stock and patentee density as measure index. The research finds that the analytical framework can effectively identify the position of industrial innovation in China, and then provide effective support for guiding industrial innovation in China.
