Abstract

Based on patent database of the China State Intellectual Property Office, the study analyzes 75,458 transfer data of patent application rights and patent rights and 238,807 non-public data of patent citations, which are used as proxy variables of technology flow of market-based and non-market-based, respectively, among 30 provinces in China from 2009 to 2015. Random effect models of panel data results indicate that there are regional differences in the impact of technology flow on technological specialization. Under the conditions of market-based (rent spillovers), the technological specialization of regions with high technology knowledge stock are more positively affected by technology flow, but regions with low technology knowledge stock are not. While under the conditions of non-market-based (pure knowledge spillovers), there are not significant for both types of regions. Based on the findings of this study, policy implications are discussed.
