China's manufacturing industry is showing a certain concentration level ? If there is , then cause agglomeration factor is what ? Purpose of this paper is to study the above issues . In this paper, the 20 2 -digit manufacturing industry as the research object . Krugman 's new economic geography as the main theoretical basis for the use of modern econometric methods , calculated based on the actual data of 2000-2003 in China , the geographic concentration index of China's manufacturing industry and the concentration of the five provinces and cities .

The study found that China's manufacturing industry continue to show a gathering trend , the industrial agglomeration occurs mainly in the southeast coastal areas , and expanding its regional industry , continuously improve the degree of specialization , so as to promote the continuous development of the regional economy . Due to the different characteristics of the industry , and thus the factors that affect the industry cluster will be different.
