This paper examines the evolution of the LCD industry in Hong Kong, from the beginnings in the 1970s, when imitation strategies were relatively easily implemented, to the 1990s, when some local companies are finding niches in the global market. Increasingly, however, they are facing pressures to re-examine their product development systems in more fundamental fashion. The paper points to the possibilities and limits of a "growth without R&D" strategy. Copyright © 1998 Carfax Publishing Ltd.
