Vertical intra-industry trade dominates horizontal intra-industry trade in Korea. A time series analysis on both these types of intra-industry trade yields the following: (1) vertical intra industry trade was caused by the rapid economic development that the Korean economy experienced in the past thirty years and (2) horizontal intra-industry trade was more random in nature caused only by the aggregate volume of trade.

JEL Classifications: F12, F14

Keywords: Vertical intra industry trade | Horizontal intra industry trade | Economic development | Causality
