      The comparison between perfect competition and oligopoly will be based on the following: number of buyers and sellers, nature of product, and barriers to entry of firms. Number of Buyers and Sellers Perfect competition is a market structure that is characterised by many buyers and sellers with each firm’s output representing an insignificant. A competitive oligopoly is a market that is dominated by only a few large firms. These firms prefer not to compete via price wars and therefore compete in various other ways, such as advertising.

    In an oligopoly, there are only a few firms that control the majority of the market. The car industry is a good example of this. There are really very few major auto makers in the world and fewer. OLIGOPOLY An oligopolistic market is a market that is characterized by a small number of large firms selling either identical or differentiated products. CHARACTERISTICS 1. Small Number of Large Firms – There is a small number of large firms, each relatively large compared to the overall size of the market. The number of firms can be as many as twenty and as few as two.

    A low concentration ratio is regarded as an industry with more competition and firms have very low control. The low concentration can be from 0 to 50 per cent and the industry can have a structure ranging from perfect competition to oligopoly. Since in industry A there are 20 firms and the CR is 20 per cent, it can be deemed as a low ratio. Downloadable! The second model deals with entry and pre-emption. We show that a firm may willingly adopt a technology with a potentially high liquidation cost - i.e. with a low liquidation value - because that commits it to stay in the market after bad performance (because it reduces the value of its option to exit), thereby preventing its rival from engaging in predatory practices.
