With the rapid development of ICT and the market, the border in the market began to be meaningless any more, and it came to be difficult to produce products just with a single technology. Especially, with the acceleration of the convergence and integration of technologies, this phenomenon will further continue in the future, and at the point of time when the patents are more important than ever before, it is important to understand the purposes of patent applications. Thus, this study looked into related preceding studies in order to analyze the reasons or purposes that domestic IT manufacturers apply for patents and drew main factors through an expert Delphi survey. As a result of an empirical analysis of the drawn factors with executives of IT manufacturers (H/W, S/W), it turned out that there was a difference in the purposes of patent applications of the IT manufacturers.
