Abstract [en]

This paper analyzes the determinants of revealed comparative advantage that accounts for the ICT goods market. A thorough exploration of the factors and literature related to geographical clustering, innovation, R&D, labor productivity and FDI is provided to promote a complete overview of the ICT sector. Moreover, a brief comparison is made to the ICT service sector. Technological progress resulting from investments in R&D, high innovation activity, and capital accumulation, is the main indicator of dynamic comparative advantage and export specialization. Our analysis is conducted with a special focus on 21 OECD countries and China, whose presence has provided the goods market with substantial dynamism. The results obtained provide an interesting outlook in regards to comparative advantage, with two of our variables yielding unexpected outcomes. The potential for future research is high concerning the ICT industry, in particular the recent surge of exports in services.
