Chapter 4: Technological competition in the Chinese market: an investigation based upon patents
This chapter focuses upon innovation spaces in China, based upon an investigation of patents. The act of patenting facilitates the competitiveness of industries and firms, based upon the ownership of technology in regional and international markets. However, until recently, the leading actors in patenting have been based in developed countries, rather than in developing countries. Moreover, there are interesting questions to explore about the emergence of national innovation systems, and particularly of institutions related to intellectual property rights (IPRs). They are just emerging in countries like China and India, where the patented technologies are also thought to be important to future competitiveness, in being able to capture the value of future innovations sold in markets.
