Spatial transferring of the high‐tech industry in China: the perspective of specialization

Spatial transferring of the high‐tech industry in China: the perspective of specialization Purpose – High‐tech industry transferring shows different features to the transferring of the traditional industries. In order to explain those special features in China, the purpose of this paper is to build a new conceptual model for high‐tech industry transferring and explore some empirical evidence. Design/methodology/approach – This paper employs a perspective of specialization to analyze high‐tech industry transferring and a primary conceptual analytical model is discussed. Key models and methodologies are the industrial gravity center model, dynamic modes analysis, character induction and mechanism deduction method. Findings – The features of high‐tech industry transferring within the China context include fast, surge, inverse‐gradient, as well as agglomeration and specification transferring. Based on the transfer pattern, high‐tech industry transferring modes are classified into two categories: vibration transferring and surge transferring. Originality/value – Using a conceptual model, this paper analyzes the features of high‐tech industry transferring in China and proposes two typical patterns to explain how the industries transfer and what are the dynamic mechanisms. In order to improve high‐tech industry transferring in China, five policy implications are recommended. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Science and Technology Policy in China Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Purpose – High‐tech industry transferring shows different features to the transferring of the traditional industries. In order to explain those special features in China, the purpose of this paper is to build a new conceptual model for high‐tech industry transferring and explore some empirical evidence. Design/methodology/approach – This paper employs a perspective of specialization to analyze high‐tech industry transferring and a primary conceptual analytical model is discussed. Key models and methodologies are the industrial gravity center model, dynamic modes analysis, character induction and mechanism deduction method. Findings – The features of high‐tech industry transferring within the China context include fast, surge, inverse‐gradient, as well as agglomeration and specification transferring. Based on the transfer pattern, high‐tech industry transferring modes are classified into two categories: vibration transferring and surge transferring. Originality/value – Using a conceptual model, this paper analyzes the features of high‐tech industry transferring in China and proposes two typical patterns to explain how the industries transfer and what are the dynamic mechanisms. In order to improve high‐tech industry transferring in China, five policy implications are recommended.
