Chapter 6: Dynamics in revealed regional competition between firms in Europe
In this chapter we take a dynamic perspective and analyse revealed competition, market dominance and spatial trade concentration on specific markets in the first decade of the twenty-first century. We apply our methodology to regional competitive trade dynamics in European regions during the period 2000–10, focusing on urban heterogeneity in regional development. We analyse all European regions but especially focus on the sector–region combinations introduced in the first chapter. We will show that over this period European regional development was characterized not only by a catching up of Central and Eastern European regions, but also by a further integration of these regions in the European economy. However, we will also show that this integration did not have unequivocal positive effects for all sector–region combinations in Central and Eastern European regions. We discuss in depth the revealed competition measure introduced in the previous chapter.
