Un ours en peluche. Un jouet est un objet dont la fonction principale est de permettre le jeu. Sommaire1 Histoire2 Typologie2. Jean-Baptiste Chardin, L'Enfant au toton, vers Les jouets modernes, en revanche, sont souvent produits en masse et vendus dans les magasins. Typologie[modifier modifier le code]Jeux de construction[modifier modifier le code] Briques de Lego. Les ensembles de construction font appel aux enfants et adultes qui aiment travailler avec leurs mains, les puzzles, et qui ont de l'imagination.
Altekruse, Un grand nombre de jouets sont des jeux actifs. Le fait de jouer avec ce genre de jeux permet aux enfants de faire de l'exercice, de construire les os et les muscles et d'aider la condition physique. Certains jouets, comme les Beanie Babies, attirent un grand nombre d'adeptes, et deviennent des objets de collection. These spinning acorn tops look great standing still or in motion. Perfect for adults and children, the natural shape of these tops make for great fun. Each top is completely unique as each acorn "stem" has a slightly different shape.
Finished with a durable coating, these acorn tops are both sculptural and whimsical. In order to conclude, I will say that it seems to me to be very difficult to synthesise the bond between innovation and market conditions through a general law because of the high numbers of factors that can influence it in so many different ways. As the author states, it is very difficult to describe the connection between competition and innovation.
Writers and experts have different opinions on the subject. On the one hand, monopolist seems to have less incentive to innovate. From his position it does not seem to be reasonable to use resources to create something new, because there is nothing more to be won for him. However, in the real world we can observe complicated net connecting competitors, markets, suppliers, technologies etc. Therefore, monopolist on one certain market could be innovative in various ways in order to get new business.
He could try to use capabilities gathered in his current business in process of new product introduction or find innovative way to manage the supply chain to decrease production cost. Also, innovation may allow the monopolist to get customers that were not even considered as they chose different products, but referring to the same need. For example, breakthrough in computer gaming industry could attract more people to spend their time playing games instead of use another means of entertainment.
He argues that competition is an ever-present threat and the possibility of losing monopolist position may discipline the company and make it constantly innovate. Competition seems to be a factor that usually makes companies innovate, but it does not always happen. For example, automobile giant General Motors may be reluctant to introduce its first electric car, even if the company considers electric vehicles as future of automobile industry.
First problem might be that if the new technology does not conquer the market, then GM may lose much more than smaller competitors. Therefore, company might want to wait for market response and react adequately.
The other reason might be that introduction of the new product puts in question the whole previous business based on gasoline or oil powered engines. Such significant change may cause problems with various stakeholders e. Moreover, when the company considers the innovation to be easy to be copied by the competitors, it may not consider the profits from the innovation as high enough to make an effort to innovate.
Having considered all mentioned situations, it is hard to come up with one general solution to the problem. I believe that all situations should be analyzed separately. When we focus on certain market and companies present on it, we can be closer to the conclusion on the impact of competition on innovation.
Great names of economics as Joseph Schumpeter and later Clayton Christensen have given great input to this question, and until now, there is no universal agreement in this matter, about a direct correlation between competition or a lack of it and innovation. In fact, I would say that what defines the positive or negative impact of competition to the degree of innovation, are the specific market characteristics. As admitted in the article, a monopoly situation will generate larger profits or larger capacity to innovate , while a perfect competition situation will create more benefits from differentiation or incentives to innovation.
Regarding the capacity to innovate, which can be not only in form of money for investment, but also knowledge, intellectual property and other assets, is often found in monopolistic or close to it companies. These companies will naturally prefer a stable market and may not see sufficient reasons for incurring the risk and the cost of innovation. In this situation the promotion of competition is positive. When it comes to the incentives for innovation, which are maximized in the perfect competition situation, the main question is how to provide capacity for the market to innovate.
This can be done by providing patents, subsidise investigation and attribute certifications or prizes to companies who can attain certain degrees of quality for example. Concluding, my opinion is that the external environment should be able to provide both capacity and incentives for innovation and the state should be in position of balancing both variables with the legal and financial tools at its disposal.
To finish is also important to consider that there are other variables that influence the amount of innovation in a market, for example the technological degree. Indeed, imagine we are not in a competitive market, profits for firms are higher than in a very competitive one but people have an incentive to enter into this market to also make big profits.
Imagine now that we are in a very competitive market, profits will be lower but laggard firms will be discouraged to enter in this kind of market by the low profits. If competition increases, people have an incentive to innovate. Secondly, innovation is the way to differentiate himself from others. On the other hand, large firms have more to lose if they decide to innovate, as explained in the introduction.
Moreover, this relation is also influenced by strategic interactions between firms, market characteristics but mainly governments. Indeed, to regulate this debate, governments have launch, for example, the system of patents.
To conclude, these two concepts are very important for the economic welfare and depend on many factors. As it is explained in the above, a clear link between competition and innovation is, from a practical point of view, really difficult to establish. As a matter of fact, this link depends on various relationships that differs according to the market environment.
Nevertheless, from a theoretical point of view, as Schumpeter and Arrow are explaining in their theories, a distinction has to be made between the firm capacity and its incentives to innovate. But I found it interesting to examine deeper the way incentives to innovate depend on the competition on the considered market, as well as on the technological frontier.
This paper outlines that the assumption that firms with more market power monopolies in particular have smaller incentives to innovate than firms facing a higher degree of competition is a little too simplistic. The model that is explained has been written by Aghion and Griffith in It considers two main cases: when there is a leader and a few oligopolists, and where there is a well installed firm which is threatened by a newcomer that wants to enter the market.
This model is based by looking at firms regarding their distance to the technological frontier which is defined as the most advanced level of technological research. It is the set of the most efficient existing technologies, see sources. In the first case, when there is a leader and a few oligopolists, a high competition has different effects depending on their distances from the technological frontier.
If firms are far away from it, they will not be able to imitate the new technology, so here the competition is reducing the incentives to innovate.
However the firms which are on the technological frontier have the possibility to escape from competition by introducing a completely new technology.
When an entry happens, it is at the technological frontier of the moment. If the newcomer manages to enter, he becomes therefore the new leader, unless the installed firm moves the frontier. In time of competition, when the entering probability is increasing, the expected returns of firms which are not on the frontier are decreasing. Therefore, those firms which are not on the frontier are discouraged to innovate: there is a discouraging effect.
Those firms have thus an incentive to innovate to escape from competition. In conclusion, the point that I wanted to highlight here is that you cannot just simply consider that monopoly have smaller incentive to innovate that firms facing a high degree of competition. It is true that the competition-innovation link depends on the type of firms which are on the market, but it depends also on other factors, such as the technological barrier at the moment and the entering probability for instance.
Sources: Gaffard, J. I think the link between competition and innovation is real but it depends on many factors. A first factor would be the sustainability of the products on the market. Are the products sustainable or does the technology evolve constantly? But if the technology of our product evolves quickly, we have to manage to innovate before the others to keep our market shares Red ocean. Managers must focus on short-term benefits but also on long-term benefits, which implies to consider that there is a constant danger that another firm innovate before you and steal all your market shares.
On the contrary, little firms that want to enter in the market face high competition and have to differentiate themselves by innovating and proposing new products.
Innovating is the best way to remove entry barriers and take market shares in a short period of time. The mutually influence between competitive environment and innovation cannot be simplified as a worldwide generalization. If we assume a one-way relationship between both concepts it will induce a dilemma. Innovation becomes more likely in a competitive environment after which it could lead, through its competitive advantage, the company to a partial monopoly and this monopoly will decrease in the competition… To summarize this proposition we can say that competition induce a decreasing in competition market, which is illogical!
First, the original goal of innovation are not the same in different companies. On one hand, we have the companies that develop in the expectation to commercialize it late; on the other hand, we have the companies that see through innovation only a financial goal.
In our legal patent system, we have seen emerge much more companies with a financial goal amongst which patent troll. The reason to make this distinction is to mark a difference on the influence of innovation on competition. Concerning the effect of competition on innovation, I believe the intensity of the competition can be focused.
The link between competition and innovation is a fact. The perfect competition is supposed to lead to a social optimum. It could be said that the innovation would also lead to social welfare, but it is not always the case. Indeed, I think innovation cannot be only linked with competition; other factors, like taxes or externalities, can force a company to innovate or not. This is why the relationship between both is hard to explain.
A lot of other dimensions are taken into account by companies to make their choice. As the market is not a lab, it is impossible to neutralize all the other factors and therefore see and understand the real relationship between both. In order to create incentives for firms to innovate, firms have to capture some profit from their innovation. Importantly, the structure of the market affects the profitability calculations. Some economists have argued that some monopoly power is necessary to provide incentives while other claims that rather a competitive market is essential.
Schumpeter supports the fact that some monopoly must be tolerated to obtain progressiveness. They highlights the conflicting incentives that market structure provides for innovation. In one hand, more rivals tend to stimulate more rapid innovation in order to be first with a new product and benefit from the disproportionate rewards of being first. The question is whether a monopolistic will continue to be dynamic in terms of its innovative efforts.
It is necessary to identify its incentive to innovate. The incentive to innovate for a monopoly is the profit increase he gets from the innovation. We can compute this by subtract the pre-invention profit from the new profit.
When evaluating its increases of profit —and therefore its incentive to innovate- the inventor in the competitive industry does not need to subtract anything. With some graphs, showing an innovation consisting in a decrease of marginal costs for the innovator, it is straightforward to show that the incentive is greater in the competitive industry than in the monopoly.
Tirole has described this lesser incentive in monopoly as the replacement effect. There are two ways to consider the link between competition and innovation. One is that competition has positive effect on innovation, the other is that competition has negative effect. Obviously, in the same period of time and the same economic environment, they cannot exist in the same time.
When we talk about competition and innovation, Apple and Samsung are always mentioned as good examples. We look back to last two decades, people only used basic cell phones but smartphones. At that time, Apple and Samsung worked in different electronic industry.
Apple focused on personal computers. Samsung mainly produced household appliances. There were not almost any competition between them. In this case, IT innovation stimulates competition.
Every years, Apple launches a new iPhone and Samsung also launches its new smartphones at the almost same time. Both of them have new innovation in their products. In this case, Competition stimulates IT innovation. In a competitive market, Inter-stimulated relationship is between competition and innovation. And innovation is the only way to let which company can continually compete with other rivals. Last decade ago, Nokia was the No.
You can its phones everywhere. Unfortunately, due to the evolution of phones, less and less people bought its phones and it has a great deficit over the ten years to early Eventually, it was bought by Microsoft.
From this amazing news, we can understand that innovation is the most important measure on competition. As long as a company lost its own power to innovate, it would be soon obsoleted. Innovation is such an important thing but not all of them can be accepted by the market. For instance, Galaxy Tab S, which is made by Samsung, has both tablet and smartphone functions. Even though people like a big screen, Galaxy Tab S is too huge to carry. In conclusion, innovation connects closely to competition.
Innovation is the greatest motive power in competition. That is the reason why more and more products were created in faster and faster speed. I agree with the quote explaining that monopolies have fewer incentives to innovate because they face less competition. Indeed, they face a lower threat of companies finding an innovation that could harm their position as leader.
But, on the other hand, a monopoly is never alone on the market, there are always competitors be it indirectly or smaller actors. He says companies performing well in one generation of innovation, have troubles coping with the next wave of innovations. I think this can be explained by the fact that good performing companies rest on their laurels and do not see the upcoming danger. They think they do not have to innovate because they are the market leader and as explained in the text, they do not want to cannibalise their sales.
When we look at the example of Kodak for instance, they were performing pretty well in the camera business until the day of the digital camera came. They did not see the importance if this trend and did not invent enough.
Additionally, in the case of Apple, I think their position on the market has deteriorated compared to a couple of years ago. An Iphone was seen as a real revolution when they started and no other company could provide a similar technological phone.
Some people even argue Samsung phones are better and more powerful, and at the same time cheaper than Iphones. A company such as Apple with a comfortable position in the beginning is facing thus more competition and who knows where they will be in a couple of years?
But is the Iphone 6 so different than the Iphone 5? I personnaly do not think so. If Apple continues to bring new Iphones, Ipods and Ipods without substantial innovations, maybe more people will move to the competitor and they will start losing substantial market share. For the past few decades starting with works of J. Schumpeter and K. Arrow the question of interaction and mutual influence between innovation and competition remains the focus of the analysis of economic growth, including research projects, current agenda of public policy, and the practice of innovation.
The relationship between competition, innovations and economic growth in the different market types monopoly, oligopoly, perfect competition have been evaluated by various authors using both theoretical approaches and empirical data. Therefore the results of such researches are often completely contradictories.
One of reasons of this statement comes from the nature of innovation. So in the situation with a lot of small competing firms one could find more reasonable not to take risk of innovation and go bankrupt but stay with not big but stable profit. Other point is once the innovation is in the market, competitors could find various ways to use it or simply to copy. This problems suggest that the right government intervention is needed to maintain incentives for innovation in the competitive market such as subsidizing, creation of the strong legal defense for innovation etc.
I believe that in monopoly situation firms have more incentives to innovate. One of the most important incentive is to avoid new firms entering the market. In the fast growth of informatization and globalization, monopolist with significant market power and large capacities risks to lose everything if its product stops responding constantly changing consumer demand.
Another good incentive for monopolist to innovate is that normally it has nearly all the demand. It means that it risks less that innovation will not be consumed by its customers.
To sum it up, I want to say that competition on way or another affects the innovation process but the character of this effect varies depending on many factors and circumstances. I will try to explain my own opinion of this interesting topic by seeing the situation of innovation in 2 different levels of competition; a competitive market high level of competition and a monopolistic situation no competition at all.
In a competitive market, if a company want to live and thrive, the firm has to innovate a lot. In this situation, others companies will innovate and your product will quickly become exceed. Indeed, customers will finish by choose the product which is better and the companies will go bankrupt.
The competition forced by customers forced actually a firm to innovate. A company with a monopolistic situation and a nice product have, during the first period of time, no interest to innovate. Indeed, a product of the monopole is working well and trying to put a new product on the market will maybe do some cannibalism on the first product.
In a second period of time, any company have to innovate and evaluate to a new product. Indeed, the product of monopole has, such as every product, a life cycle. This situation of innovation is not push by competition but by another factor which has also link with innovation. In conclusion, I think that a big link between competition and innovation exist.
Without competition, companies will actually take more time to innovate. Firms will innovate when, for example, a product has finish is life cycle, but not by the cause of innovation.
We can clearly say that competition is one of the factors which push any companies to innovate. This situation is good for the market and the customers. For me, the nature of the link between competition and innovation is the same as time and innovation: This is a way to encourage change and innovate in a company. We may think that the relationship between competition and innovation is easy to find. Intuitively, we can say that the more firms you can find in a market, the more they will be in competition, and therefore, they will have an incentive to innovate.
This statement is not true and the link between competition and innovation is much more complex than it seems. First off all, the company size is an important factor.
Innovations usually involve important research and development costs. These research and development costs are sunk costs because they do not vary by the quantity that is produced.
It is easier for a large company to spend money in research and development because large companies have more financial resources than small one. Moreover, a large company can also minimize risk by diversifying the research and development project. Finally, large companies will have more incentive to invest in innovation because the expected profits are more important. Indeed, larger firms produce usually more than small one.
They have more customers, better distribution circuit, etc. For all these reasons, we can assume that the size of a business could be positively correlated with innovation. Secondly, the market power concept is also important. Often, for an innovation to be accepted by the market and in order to make people use it, innovation must have a minimum number of people who use in the beginning.
It is therefore important that the company has enough market power to impose his idea to market. For example, a new type of computer keyboard was invented a few years ago. This new type of keyboard allowed writing faster.
The innovation was good but it was never adopted by the market because no firm has enough market power to impose this innovation. So people continue to use the old keyboard azerty or qwerty although new was better. In conclusion, the relationship between competition and innovation is more complex than it seems.
It strongly depends on many factors that are unique to each business, market, etc. As described in the article of Michael L. Tushman and Charles A. A firm can never stop to innovate whether products or processes innovations. They can do it smoothly with incremental changes or hardly with revolutionary change. First, a firm like Microsoft must keep in mind that if they want to stay leader on a market, they will have to add exclusive features to their product once they get copied by other firms.
Secondly, once the market gets to maturity, firm will have to fight on the costs. That is one of the last steps of incremental change, and at this point managers should really begin to think about a revolutionary change. Revolutionary change is one way for small organizations to become big players, but — as it is said in the article — it can be a problem for big firms because of the cannibalism.
Managers of old-fashioned products departments have no incentive to encourage the launch of a new product, led by another department. So, here we see that we can also have conflicts within the same organization, not only cannibalism. In conclusion, according to us, innovation depends on the level of competition but also of the forecast of revolutionary changes.
Firms like Kodak were aware of the competition, but had not foreseen a new technology coming, which led them to bankruptcy although they were market-leaders.
So, organizations should keep on innovating with small on non-perturbing changes features,processes,costs,.. Finally, launching a brand new product as a leader can be a success as well as a failure; big companies like Microsoft should not put all their efforts in those new products.
