Drawing on the bargaining power perspective, we investigate the factors that affect technology innovation propensity of international joint ventures (IJVs) in emerging economies. With a sample of IJVs in China, we find that local equity share and local manager percentage are positively related to an IJV’s technology innovation propensity. Further, our results show that an IJV’s local market focus enhances its technology innovation propensity, and moderates the impact of local equity
share and local manager percentage on its technology innovation propensity. Theoretical and managerial implications are discussed.
