Production Networks in Asia: A Case Study from the Hard Disk Drive Industry

Daisuke Hiratsuka

No 301, ADBI Working Papers from Asian Development Bank Institute

Abstract: Production networks have been extensively developed in East Asia. Previous studies on production networks used international trade data or input–output tables, but such aggregate data cannot explain how the networks actually operate. With the aim of understanding the features and characteristics of East Asian production networks, this paper examines the procurement system of a hard disk drive assembler operating in Thailand. This micro-level case study found that this particular production network consists mostly of arm’s-length suppliers, who are independent and on an equal footing with the assembler.
