Une analyse de R&D industrielle de longue période : le cas de l'industrie informatique
This article takes another look at the theme of the relations between innovation, profitability and size from a long-term analysis (18 years from 1983 to 2000) of the computer industry. The industrial dynamics of the industry induces us to hypothesize that a change into the industrial organisation has taken place during the period. The empirical analysis is realised from a proprietary database built upon the sixty first firms of the sector. It is shown that no relation exist between R&D spending and size of the firm. It is also shown that the same occurs between R&D spending and profitability. On the other hand, the relation between profit and size is more complex: it depends on the time period studied and so on the industrial organisation of the industry.
