  • Influencing Factors on the Entrants Motivation and Ability in the Context of the Disruption Process: A Cross-Country Study in the Western European PWLAN Market   Order a copy of this article
    by Stefan Huesig, Katalin Timar, Claudia Doblinger 
    Abstract: This paper explores how regulation affects the motivation and ability of entrant firms to create successful new sub-markets that are shaped by a potential disruptive innovation. We focus on the telecommunication industry, particularly on the hotspot sub-market, to study these effects in the context of a network industry. In this setting, the impact of a potentially disruptive innovation might be different because of the institutional embeddedness of incumbent and entrant firms. We examine this phenomenon by analyzing the entrants strategies and success of market entry into the hotspot sub-market in 17 Western European countries. The results indicate that the sub-market success of entrants in regulated markets depends both on the regulation and the resistance of incumbents to regulation in a specific country.
