Resource description

By focussing on cumulativeness and spillover effects of technological knowledge,theories on technological regimes are predominantly supply side oriented inexplaining industrial dynamics. This paper introduces demand side considerationsas an additional explanation for industrial dynamics. Given variations in consumerpreferences over quality and network sizes of technologies, and different degreesof compatibility between succeeding technologies, we investigate how theresulting differences in the timing and frequency of new technology adoptionseffect the industrial dynamics. The simulation results of the model indeed suggesta relationship between different patterns of new technology adoptions and thedynamics of the firm population.
