Based on the enterprise data of listed companies from 2002 to 2016, this paper studies the relationship between different types of service-oriented strategies and technological advancements of China’s dominant manufacturing enterprises. The research results show that the superior enterprise adopts the customer-oriented service strategy or the product-oriented service strategy to promote the technological progress. The strategy of product-oriented for superior enterprises is mainly to promote technological efficiency to improve the level of technological progress, while the strategy of customer-oriented is mainly to improve the level of technological progress by improving technological innovation. In industries with high global market potential, the adoption of product-oriented strategies by dominant enterprises is more conducive to the impact on technological progress. The research realizes the dialogue between the micro level and the meso level, and theoretically reveals the “black box” of the dominant enterprise service strategy type that influences the technological progress path. The author proposes that the government should formulate industrial policies to screen out dominant enterprises for cultivation, and provide necessary conditions for advantageous enterprises to achieve transformation and upgrading, and give full play to the advantages of enterprise autonomy to stimulate market vitality. For industries with high global market potential, efforts should be made to open up the domestic demand market, siphon global innovation factors to form agglomeration in China, and provide a basis for enterprises to successfully implement transformation strategies.
