Abstract

We develop a model that investigates how strategically interacting firms share a given set of spatially separated markets. We show that, for intermediate values of transport costs, the spatial distribution of firms determines the structure of intra-industry trade, which in turn influences this spatial distribution. Our results highlight the strong and circular link between the spatial distribution of economic activities and the structure of intra-industry trade and suggest that the agglomeration of firms is not incompatible with high values of transport costs.Classification JEL : F12 ; L10 ; L13 ; R32.
