Under the background of globalization, protection of intellectual property rights has been further strengthened and patent becomes one of the most important factors related to the survival and development of an organization. In recent years, patent-related events have been continuously outbursted, but relevant discussions are still stay at the surface level. In the present study, we first analyze the patent threat between different organizations, including its formation mechanism, definition, type classification, manifestation and impact factors. From the perspective of technology development, patent threat can be classified into three types: patent gap threat, patent diversity threat and patent R&D threat. Secondly, an empirical study has been carried out on the whole Chinese communication industry. The result shows that Chinese communication industry mainly faces serious patent gap threat caused by the lack of core patents.
