High-Quality Development of Ceramic Industry Clusters in Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area Based on Green Innovation


Ceramic industry
Green economy
Technological innovation
Green development




In the past ten years, the ceramic industry which, belongs to the manufacturing industry, has formed an industrial cluster advantage in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area in China. However, the continuous economic downturn in the international market, coupled with anti-dumping and other trade barriers, and the domestic overcapacity and environmental pollution pressure has impeded the export of ceramic industry products. The internal and external problems are restricting the improvement of green innovation performance of the ceramic industry cluster in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area under the high-quality development. This project divides green innovation into several stages and levels for analysis, and establishes an evaluation index system in three dimensions: green economic benefits, technological innovation, and green development. Data on the factors affecting the high-quality development of the ceramic industry in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area were extracted from databases such as CSMAR, WIND, RESSET, and CCER, followed by empirical tests. Finally, the specific improvement path for the high-quality development of the ceramic industry in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area is obtained, and lastly the policy recommendations is proposed in the paper.
