Non-thermal plasma Technology (NTP) has been widely used in various fields, especially in environmental pollutants treatment field. This paper provides an overview of the global NTP patent landscape by analyzing relative patents based on CNABS and DWPI, selected from 1987 to 2019, which covers patenting activity related to technologies in pollutant removal from the process in the above-mentioned areas. The most common technologies for each area were identified and their developments were analyzed over time. Information related to the main countries, key applicants, current activities and the technology strength were identified by synthesizing important findings from qualitative research and quantitative literature analysis.
