Based on 2647 valid samples of real estate industry and information technology industry from 2005 to 2016, multiple regression model was used to empirically test the relationship between industry dividend cycle, executive compensation incentive and enterprise performance. The research shows that :(1) the performance of enterprises in the industry dividend cycle is higher than that of enterprises in the non-industry dividend cycle; (2) the industry dividend cycle has a positive impact on the relationship between executive compensation incentives and corporate performance, and the impact has regional differences. The research of this paper is helpful for enterprises to seize the opportunity of industry development, reasonably design the incentive system of executive compensation, and improve enterprise performance.
