Nowadays, many creative industry clusters in China are rushing toward the development of a creative ecological model of " culture+e-commerce” and " academy+parks”, with the aim of accelerating the development of brand building and derivative markets, creating a complete creative industry innovation ecosystem. At the same time, the boundless nature of creativity has enabled scholars’ research on creative industries to change from the perspective of an industrial chain to innovation ecosystem. However, the research on creative industry innovation ecosystem is fragmented and lacks a clear definition of systematic combing and related conceptual features, thereby hindering the development of creative industry innovation ecosystem as a promising research area. Thus, we use scientific measurement tools of CiteSpace to do the visualization analysis and interpret the " 109 articles” and 4129 citations related to creative industry innovation ecosystem of the WOS database, and comprehensively review the related research content of creative industry innovation ecosystem from the perspective of knowledge evolution and development trends. Based on the analysis of the knowledge atlas of this field, the hotspots are systematically combed and categorized into four major sections: knowledge management, open innovation, innovation motivation, and value creation. There is content crossover and hotspot synergy between each section, and they present a progressive relationship. This paper also identifies the basic ecological niche of creative industry innovation ecosystem-creative individuals. Specifically, the knowledge flow patterns among creative individuals and enterprises in the system represent the internal mechanism of open innovation. At the same time, under the promotion of innovation drivers such as " R&D inputs, technological changes, consumer participation, and policy diversities”, this way of flow has, to a certain extent, increased the innovative output of the system and the value creation mechanism based on multi-agent collaboration. This study believes that " policy diversities, technological advancement, talent enrichment, and system openness” play a crucial role in stimulating the innovative power of the creative companies within the system. And it is important to promote the improvement of the related policies about Chinese creative industry innovation ecosystem. It also provides a reference for the fostering and development of creative industry innovation ecosystem based on the synergy of production, education and research in the context of China. The diversity of policies and the openness of the system will stimulate speculative and rent-seeking behaviors of individual companies while boosting the development of the system. Practically, it provides theoretical implications and solutions to collaborate development in terms of social networks for the management of creative enterprises, implying the importance of building favorable relationships with them.
