Industry Mix, Plant Turnover and Productivity Growth: A Case Study of the Electronic and Electrical Product Manufacturing Industry, Working Paper 2014-05, Economic Research and Policy Analysis Branch Working Paper Series

Labour productivity growth in the Canadian electronic and electrical product manufacturing industry declined, from 21% per year in the period 1997–2000, to negative 4% per year in the period 2000–2006. This paper investigates if the restructuring and the reallocation of market share and resource within the industry following the bursting of the tech bubble in 2000 contributed to the slowdown in productivity growth.
