TECHNOLOGY AND SUCCESS IN MEXICO: A PROPOSAL FOR INDUSTRIAL DIVISION

Recent literature on Mexican industry has emphasized its uneven sectorial development: some sectors have been successful, while the rest remain well behind. Given these circumstances, the present paper proposes a particular division for Mexican industry in High-Tech and Low-Tech sectors. This division is based on technological and structural variables for two different samples of the nineties and verified for statistical robustness using the discriminant analysis technique. Finally, the division is used for an empirical application in terms of profitability and market structure. The empirical results reveal a diverse behaviour of the High-Tech and Low-Tech groups.
