This thesis endeavors to present a comprehensive overview of the global state of solid propellant technology. Its genesis lies in the imperative to furnish contextual backing for a patent conceived, titled " Photo-polymerization for additive manufacturing of composite solid propellants", aimed at subsequent coherent market analysis. Solid propellants represent pivotal constituents utilized as propulsion fuel in rockets, missiles, and analogous systems. Comprised of solid chemical compounds, such as polymers, aluminum compounds, or graphite dioxide, combined with oxidizers and adjunctive additives, these materials furnish a steadfast energy source and exhibit prolonged stability, rendering them versatile for multifarious applications encompassing rocketry, launcher mechanisms, fire extinguishing agents, and airbag expansion. This work assumes the form of a Patent Landscape Report (PLR), wherein meticulous data processing and manipulation from a discerningly curated Patent Database will distill pertinent information and delineate trends germane to solid propellant technology. Patents are recognized as potent repositories of information, and PLRs are purposefully devised to distill intrinsic insights from these documents, thereby evaluating the extant technological progress within a sector and furnishing strategic support to companies and institutions within the field. Additionally, this endeavor aspires to provide an encompassing contextual understanding of solid propellants by delineating the distinct stages within the production process. Moreover, it endeavors to proffer an exhaustive introduction to the realm of patents, facilitating a robust foundational understanding pivotal for a more nuanced comprehension of the ensuing analytical processes. The exploration and analysis of the collected data will be executed utilizing R, an open-source programming language widely acclaimed for its prowess in data manipulation and visualization. Such an approach ensures comprehensive visual reinforcement for this scholarly pursuit. Subsequently, the outcomes gleaned from the varied analyses will be synthesized, thereby spotlighting key trends and insights in the conclusive and final deliberations.
