Innovation and Market Structure in the Manufacturing Sector: An Application of Linear Feedback Models
In recent years, there has been a renewed interest in the relationship between market structure and innovation activities at an industry level. The paper examines the relationship between these for the manufacturing sector in a sample of 33 countries. It applies a recently developed method, based on linear feedback models, and uses cross-country time-series data. Despite the relatively small number of observations, the results indicate that domestic competition, external market share, and research and development have a positive effect on innovation activities. The results also suggest that the introduction of the foreign competition may have an initial positive effect on innovation activities, but over time this becomes dissipated.
