Geographical Localization of Innovation: Evidence from Inventors’ Location in India. No. 2014-006 Featured

  • Written by  Swapan Kumar Patra and Mammo Muchie


Geographical location of technological innovation in India is analyzed in this articles using Indian inventors address from United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) data. From 1970 to 2012 period was divided into three phases based on the different industrial policies adopted by the government in different span of time. The data shows that location wise there is strong incremental polarization of innovative activity along with the changes in the economic policy. In the first phase, most of the innovators were limited in urban areas where the universities and government research institutes are located. However, along with the gradual opening of the economy, many foreign Multinationals have started their R&D operations in India. So, the location of innovation shifted and dispersed throughout the country. In the initial years most of the patenting activity was in the traditional fields and now moved to more high technology areas.
