Investissement direct à l'étranger et entrée séquentielle sur le marché


  • Vincent Aussilloux


[eng] Foreign direct investment and sequential entries. . The paper studies the choice between export and FDI taking into account the sequential aspect of rivals' decisions. A plant producing abroad operate like a preemptive credible commitment. It can allow the first-mover to deter direct investment and force the potential entrant to choose export rather than FDI, despite high tariffs. Therefore, when oligopoly producers of identical products compete for the foreign market shares, the ability to rapidly set up a local plant becomes essential. [fre] Investissement direct à l'étranger et entrée séquentielle sur le marché. . Le modèle proposé envisage l'arbitrage entre exportation et Investissement direct en tenant explicitement compte du décalage dans le temps des décisions des rivaux. Malgré des taxes à l'importation élevées, le caractère crédible de l'engagement en capital que représente l'investissement peut autoriser, dans cer­tains cas, la firme qui s'installe en premier à dissuader l'implantation surplace de son concurrent. Dans la situation où plusieurs oligopoleurs se font concurrence pour la conquête d'un marché étranger, une implantation rapide localement appa­raît dès lors fondamentale.
