  • Latecomer
  • Technology acquisition
  • Abstract Technology has become one of the important factors affecting the competitive advantages of the high-tech firms. The Latecomers are the firms isolated from the main stream technologies and lack of technology resources, they implement “Catch-up” strategy by playing the role as technology recipients, acquiring technologies from the first-movers, and expect to join the leading-edge technology group. This research is at the Latecomers’ standpoint, to investigate how Latecomers’ technological abilities, marketing abilities and the environmental risks influence the options of the Latecomers’ external knowledge acquisition.
    This paper studied the incidents of the technology acquisition in the LED and Solar industries from 1990 to 2009. Two databases, the strategic alliance of SDC Platinum and the patent database of USPTO (United States Patent and Trademark Office) were used in this study. Multiple Logistic Regression was used to test the hypothesis. The analysis in this study found that the Latecomer’s technology abilities, marketing abilities and the environmental risks really influenced the choice of technology acquisition mode made by Latecomers.
