Abstract

Diffusion of innovations is a spatial process. Spatial conditions and demand preferences may induce creation of spatial lead markets before national and international adoptions take place. This paper aims to extend the Lead Markets concept in a spatial dimension, considering local differences. We firstly discuss theoretical underpinnings of the spatial dimension of Lead Markets concept and then apply the concept to the case of photovoltaic systems? diffusion in Germany. Based on spatial data and an extensive case study, we show how an innovation is deployed in local areas of a country before being adopted nationwide. We also apply the system of lead market attributes (demand, price, export, transfer and market structure advantages) to the case and discuss how a local lead market could take off in a particular region of a country. Our findings have significant implications not only in theory but also for practice, providing recommendations for policy makers who seek to enhance the level of diffusion for particular innovations.
