This study focuses on geographical concentration of industries in Kazakhstan at 2, 4 and 5-digit disaggregation level, across 16 regions of Kazakhstan during 1990 - 2013. The main objective of this study is to identify the change in regional concentration of industries during the sample period. There are certainly considerable differences in levels of concentration between industries and their changes during the sample period. Thus, sectors like utilities, food and beverage industries show less concentration, whereas industries with high knowledge intensity present very high levels of spatial concentration during the whole sample period. In addition, there was a considerable decline in concentration of oil and gas and related extractive industries during the period of under consideration both in absolute and relative terms. It happens to be that many new industries with high knowledge intensity have emerged since 1990 and that there are many sectors that are negligibly small.
