It is widely acknowledged that innovations hold the key to the better performance and the competitiveness of firms. Yet, evidence across countries reveals that only a small proportion of firms engage in innovation activities. To some extent, this can be attributed to the high rate of failure to commercialize innovation efforts. Bearing the above said in mind, this paper explores which factors and forces determine decision of firms to innovate and the market success of their innovations. A generalised tobit model is applied to the sample of firms from the retail sector of 26 transition economies collected between 2007 and 2009. The results of investigation identify foreign ownership as the most important determinant of innovation success in transition economies but also offer some interesting findings about multichannel retailing practice.
