Based on data of World Input-Output Tables from 2010 to 2014, this paper uses the method of social network analysis (SNA) to analyze the characteristics of global value-added trade networks and empirically examine the impact of servitization of manufacturing on the status of global value-added trade networks. The result indicates that servitization of manufacturing is totally conducive to improve the status of global value-added trade networks by gaining more core resources. Furthermore, the information servitization exerts stronger influence than that of some traditional servitization such as transportation and retailing, which have lower technical contents. With the conditional distribution from low-end to high-end stage, the impact of servitization of manufacturing presents inverted U-shaped trend. Facing with the trend of servitization of manufacturing, China needs accelerate the reform and opening-up of domestic service sector, providing strong support for China's manufacturing to play a more important role in the global value-trade networks.
