Abstract

The application of digital technology has provided a fresh boost to the manufacturing industry, infusing it with new momentum. This study focuses on the development of the manufacturing industry in 30 provinces across China from 2011 to 2020, examining the influence of the digital economy on its growth and further exploring the effects of industrial agglomeration. The findings suggest that the digital economy positively influences the development of the manufacturing industry, and that industrial agglomeration serves as an effective intermediary in this process. Finally, using a spatial econometric model, it was found that the positive impact of the digital economy has the characteristic of spatial spillover.
