Patterns of Globalisation in Five Industrial Sectors
This chapter provides an overview of globalisation issues in the five industries (i.e. automotive, scientific and precision instruments, software, tourism and cinema) analysed for this project and presents elements of comparisons between the globalisation patterns, on the basis of desk work and interviews conducted with major players in each industry. The concept of the GVC, as a set of economic processes, sets the frame and background for a closer observation and explanations of how, in different technological markets and contexts, roles are shared among enterprises, in particular large and small, local and global.
