Abstract

[eng] Analysis of Determinants of Technological Innovation in a Newly Industrialised Country : an Econometric Study of Business Data in the Turkish Manufacturing Sector.. This article examines the determinants of technological innovation activities by businesses in Newly Industrialised Countries (NIC). After reviewing the factors explaining these activities, it uses a logit model to explore an econometric estimate based on individual business data for the Turkish market. The results show the positive contribution made by both imported capital goods and the qualification level of workers to the probability of innovation ; an initially increasing and subsequently decreasing relation between company size, sector concentration and the probability of innovation ; the absence of a positive impact of foreign direct investment and licences acquired by local business on innovation ; and a positive two-directional relationship between innovation and export decisions. [fre] Cet article se propose d’examiner les déterminants des activités d’innovation technologique des firmes dans les Nouveaux Pays Industrialisés (NPI). Après un examen des facteurs explicatifs de ces activités, une estimation économétrique sur données individuelles d’entreprises est effectuée pour la Turquie dans le cadre d’un modèle logit. Les résultats font apparaître : une contribution positive des biens d’équipement importés et du niveau de qualification des travailleurs à la probabilité d’innover ; une relation d’abord croissante et ensuite décroissante entre la taille des entreprises, le taux de concentration sectoriel et la probabilité d’innover ; une absence d’effets positifs des investissements directs étrangers et des licences acquises par les entreprises locales sur l’innovation ainsi qu’une relation positive bidirectionnelle entre la décision d’innover et celle d’exporter.
