Global value chains (GVCs) literature shows suppliers engaging in global value chains (GVCs) increases their innovations but lose their independence from a lead firm like Apple, and then reduce their value appropriation. How can a supplier gain technological impact and capture value from GVCs? We argue that the GVC is a distributed innovation system, in which knowledge is dispersed and flowing among different GVC actors. This builds knowledge dependence among GVC actors. Knowledge dependence on different actors and its interaction with ease of knowledge combination alters innovation process, and thus innovation outcomes and value capture. Knowledge dependence of focal suppliers on Apple as a lead firm in GVC, as well as knowledge dependence on other suppliers has a positive effect on innovation impact of focal suppliers. Ease of knowledge combination moderates the relationship between knowledge dependence and innovation impact. Furthermore, the mechanisms show most useful when focal suppliers attempt to develop moderate knowledge dependence on Apple, that is, there is an inverted U-shaped relationship between knowledge dependence on Apple and value capture. Our theory and results contribute to the existing literature on knowledge dependence, distributed innovation, and GVC configuration.
