We employ network analysis to characterise the evolution of the world’s trade in value-added between 2000 and 2014. Relatively to previous studies, more recent time points are included, consolidating some of their conclusions. A small number of countries occupy central positions in the international production chains and concentration rules, along a few main production regions. Without Germany, Europe loses its pumping engine; the same for Asia without China and, in 2014, for the whole world, without the US. Will China eventually either absorb or dominate the other hubs, becoming the new central node of the World Trade Network?
