Professor Han Pengfei collaborated with his peers to examine the phenomenon of foreign knowledge spillovers in China. In this study, the team found that over time, Chinese firms have gained leadership over foreign firms in China both in terms of production and patenting. However, while foreign firms have lost market leadership in low-tech (simple) industries, they have maintained strong leadership in high-tech (complex) industries. Exploring foreign knowledge spillovers using patent citations data, the team also shows that only firms in low-tech (simple) industries eventually decrease their reliance on foreign knowledge for innovation. The findings suggest that imitation is a path to indigenous innovation only in low-tech (simple) industries and point to the need of industry-specific policies.
