ABSTRACT

Empirical evidences from the developed and few emerging economies have shown that the producing unit of the economy tends to influence the entire economy’s performance and stability. But, without adequate finance, incentive of operations, business friendly environment, effective management and operation structure, growth-oriented government policies and regulations, the manufacturing firms’ will not perform as expected. The rate of firms exit in the Nigeria’s manufacturing sector prompted this study, to analyze the dynamics of manufacturing firm’s growth in Nigeria using panel analysis. The panel regression model employed emanated from the neo-classical, managerial, and optimum firm’s size theories and
the Gibrat’s Law of Proportionate Effect. Multi-stage sampling technique was used to survey 45 manufacturing firms quoted under the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) between 1989 and 2008. The estimated dynamic panel model revealed that the manufacturing firms finance mix, utilization of assets to generate more sales, abundance of funds reserve and government intervention as indicated by Tobin’s Q, operating efficiency, capital reserve and government policies are significant determinants of manufacturing firms’ growth and dictated their dynamics in Nigeria. Also, that the Gibrat’s component enhanced the growth rate of
manufacturing firms’ sales, profit and capital employed dynamically in the manufacturing sector.
