Abstract

This study makes an early attempt to estimate the magnitude and intensity of manufacturing firms’ RandD by Indian states during the period 1991‒2008 and analyses the role of regional factors on firm-level RandD activities. As there is little research on state-wise RandD performance of firms in India, this study serves an important contribution to the academic and policy realm. It has brought out the fact the total manufacturing RandD investment in India is unevenly distributed regionally with a few states accounting for disproportionate share of it. Regional heterogeneity or inter-state disparities in RandD has increased between the 1990s and the first decade of the twenty-first century. In view of this persistent regional heterogeneity in RandD, the study has developed and estimated an empirical model for a sample of 4545 Indian manufacturing firms with RandD facilities located in single state and that explicitly includes regional factors as probable factors affecting RandD. The three-step Censored Quantitle Regression results confirm that regional factors play an important role in shaping the RandD intensity of the sample of firms. This led us to some useful policy suggestions for regional governments to promote local firms’ RandD activities.
