Performance of Patenting Firms

Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapport/proceedingKonferencebidrag i proceedingsForskning

Most countries focus on industries with high technology and the governments grant subsidies to innovating firms. However, there has been remarkable few studies of the performance of innovative firms or industries. This study examines the performance of patent active firms compared to the non-patenting firms within the manufacturing sector in Denmark. Performance is measured both by growth in employment as well as in the return on equity and profit share in turnover. The results suggest that differences in performance of patenting and non-patenting firms are very small, which questions the political tendency to favour the high tech sector.
