Based on measurement of export technological complexity and input servitization level in the manufacturing industry of China from 2006 to 2015, the effects of onshore and offshore input servitization on export technological complexity of manufacturing industry were discussed based on the panel data model by combining industrial heterogeneity. Results demonstrated that offshore input servitization has significant positive effects on export technological complexity of manufacturing industry and onshore input servitization can inhibit export technological complexity slightly. Input servitization can promote the export technological complexity to a limited extent. All of these influences have industrial heterogeneity.
