In the European Union member states, including Hungary, the spatial and structural texture of industry transformed considerably during the past few years. We can encounter both spatial and sectoral winners and losers of this transformation. It occurred that the number of the employed in certain industrial sectors decreased, domestic and export sales occasionally dropped, and in case of other industrial sectors the opposite emerged. This raises the necessity of tests, with the help of which it can be determined whether there was any concentration increase or decrease in the spatial organization of industries that in recent years, and if the marked change in industrial specialization of the counties was characteristic. To ensure that industrial changes of recent years (plot, structure) can be monitored, it is important to examine the spatial concentration of industries in Hungary and the industry specialization over time in each area. This study presents the development of the absolute spatial specialization of the Hungarian industry in the light of export sales.
