Industrial transformation has had a major impact on global economic and social development. In China,all urban land is owned by the state;this system of government leading urban land supply promotes regional industrial transformation but also results in inefficient use of industrial land and repeated construction. How to promote structural reform of land supply to promote regional industrial transformation and change the mode of economic growth is an urgent for China. Here we describe the characteristics of industrial land supply and industrial transformation in Beijing and explore the influence of land supply and industrial transformation. We found that the industrial transformation speed in Beijing city was fast-slow-fast from 1997 to 2011,with two rapid transition periods in 1998 and 2011. The level of advanced industry was rapidly upgraded,and the industry generally transformed from resource-intensive traditional industries to technology-intensive modern manufacturing. The area and price of industrial land in Beijing increased significantly from 1997 to 2011,but the marketization of Chinese industrial land supply in 2007 represented a turning point:the area of industrial land increased significantly before 2007,and the growth rate slowed down sharply after 2007,while the price of industrial land increased significantly after 2007. VAR model results show that the influence of the change in industrial land supply on industrial transformation was relatively small,with a lag effect and high volatility;however,industrial transformation had a significant negative effect on industrial land supply. Innovating supply-side reform of industrial land and developing policy for land intensive are needed to ensure the land supply of new industrial formats,the rational allocation of land and healthy development of the economy.
