Global Economic Review, 2007, vol. 36, issue 2, 167-182

Abstract: Given the importance of global competition in the information and communication technology (ICT) industry and its contribution to national economies, this paper examines the competitive structure of the global ICT market. By examining the effect of global strategies of the top 50 ICT multinationals, benchmarks, performances and key characteristics of multinational strategic behaviour in the ICT industry is established. The results indicate that there is higher rivalry among the competitors in communication and electronics/equipment segments. Additionally, the most efficient global strategies are adopted from the US and Japanese multinationals imposing a “policy gap” on corporate governance between US, Japan and the European countries.
