The link between R&D investment and market structure: evidence from Japan
This paper examines how market structure affects R&D investment at the firm level. Using a sample of 1338 Japanese firms, a sample selection model is employed to estimate R&D investment. The pooled sample results suggest that the likelihood of conducting R&D is negatively associated with market concentration. However, the relationship becomes insignificant when the model is estimated by industry group. Large market sales have a positive effect on the likelihood of conducting R&D for both pooled and industry group samples.
