Abstract

This paper is divided into eight sections. Section I points out the difference between the industrial structure of India and that of its major technology suppliers, and the patterns of supply and demand for technology which also differ as a result. Section II distinguishes the market structures of Indian industries, and relates them to technology supply from abroad, R and D and appropriability of technology. Section III describes how these market structures have evolved since the fifties. Section IV shows the influence of technology imports on the market structures and the dominant types of firms. Section V suggests a relationship between industrial performance and conditions of supply of technology. In Section VI the author deals with fellow-researchers' findings on those conditions of technology supply. Section VII compares some of the aims of technology import policies with their consequences. Finally, section VIII lists some of the policy changes suggested by the findings.
