The global development of regional industry becomes more transparent because of the economic globalization. The development and reform of industrial technology caused by big data analysis makes industries more predictable. Based on the core issue of "patent thicket", this paper constructs an analysis framework of the competitive situation of industrial patents and carries out empirical research, taking Xiamen city as an example, basing on Jiangsu province, Guangdong province and Shenzhen city and with the aid of WIPO "industry - technology" matching table. It shows that compared with the advanced provinces and cities, Xiamen’s competitiveness of industrial patent is relatively weak. Most of them are in the state of technological precursor monopoly and exploration of weak competitive technology. Based on the results of case analysis, the paper puts forward setting up the periodic monitoring mechanism of the competitive situation of industrial patents, rationally arranging incentive policies and paying attention to industry development, so as to ensure measures such as the monitoring quality of competitive situation of industrial patents to promote industrial innovation and development.
