At present, the large-scale construction of the high-speed railway is in the stage of accelerated urbanization, and the industrial space of the high-speed railway station area has also emerged with many problems in its development. This paper takes the current characteristics of China's high-speed railway construction and the problems faced by the current industrial space in station areas as a starting point. Six urban central and fringe station areas are selected as research cases to explore the characteristics of location factors on the industrial structure and spatial aggregation of high-speed railway station areas. The study finds that the early service system of urban central stations is more complete than that of urban fringe stations, and the industrial structure of fringe stations changes more obviously and is more influenced by the economic impact of high-speed rail passenger flow; the increase in the number of enterprises in urban central stations and fringe station areas is spatially directional, while the overall clustering pattern shows an opposite trend.
