Sempre meno manufatturiero in Europa? Tra terziarizzazione e aperture delle filiere
AbstractDecreasing weight of manufacturing industry in Europe? Between terziarization and opening of the value chains - This paper aims at understanding the decreasing weight of the manufacturing industry in the main European countries. The results obtained in this paper by using inputoutput tables seem to suggest that what we are observing is far from being a process of deindustrialisation of the European economies. On the contrary, these changes can be seen as the results of the manufacturing firms’ attempt to increase their competitiveness on the international markets. In so doing they tend to focus more and more on non-prices strategies (innovation, marketing, distribution, etc.), leaving to the Emerging countries the most labour-intensive phases of the production process. These strategies lead to a rise in the high-skilled -service jobs within the manufacturing firms, which interact increasingly with service sectors.
