This paper estimate the values map of three electronics industries of China in the 2000s. Utilizing demand estimates of the three industries, I draw and a cost-benefit indifferent curve that can depict "cost-advantage strategies" and "benefit-advantage strategies". Results indicate that FIEs takes a benefit-advantage position and private owned enterprise keeps a cost-advantage position, whereas SOEs were trapped in the middle. An additional findings is that benefits of POEs and SOEs were not priced proportionally. Higher benefit products are priced much the same as lower benefit products. This might imply "excess'' price competition among SOEs and POEs.
