R & D Behaviour of Indian Firms: A Stochastic Control Model
AbstractThis paper develops a dynamic stochastic model to explain the observed pattern of R&D input choices of Indian private firms in terms of firm size, market structure, and science base. The inputs to the production of technological knowledge are taken to be in house R&D activities, and purchase of technology and know-how from foreign and domestic suppliers. The model is estimated with firm level data from light, petro-chemical, and heavy industries. In all three industries larger firms tend to substitute domestic for foreign purchase of technology and technical knowhow; and in heavy industry, larger firms also do more in-house R&D. Monopoly power of a firm in the light industry has no significant effect on its R&D activities; in the heavy industry, higher monopoly power to a firm reduces its purchase of technology, without affecting other R&D activities; in the petro chemical industry, higher monopoly power to a firm reduces its purchase of technology, but this but this reduction is partially offset by an increase in in-house R&D expenditures.
