Abstract

Identification and Judgment of logistics industrial cluster life cycle stages

Author(s): Xiaoye Zhou, Huan Sun, Hongxue Zhang

Identifying the different stages of logistics industrial cluster means a lot to obtain competitive advantage during the evolution. However, there is no general and simple method to divide the life cycle stages of cluster. The researches on how to identify life cycle stages of a certain cluster is less too. Therefore, a multi-dimensional method is proposed to identify logistics industrial cluster life cycle. First, principal component analysis method is used to analyze the main indexes of logistics industrial cluster life cycle. Second, Location Quotient method is applied on measuring the agglomeration degree of regional logistics industrial cluster. Then, logistic model is used to determine the key points and life cycle stages of logistics industrial cluster. Finally, it takes Shenyang Economic Zone as an example to identify life cycle stages of logistics industrial cluster. The result shows that pure aggregation stage of Shenyang Economic Zone logistics industrial cluster is from the year 2007 to June 2009. The netting stage begins from June 2009 to June 2017, and the innovation stage is from March 2017 to April 2028. It makes contributions to the sustainable development of logistics industrial cluster of Shenyang Economic Zone.
