Market Concentration

Market concentration refers to the extent to which a small number of organisations account for a large proportion of the market. For example, banking, petrol retailing and car manufacture are all dominated by a few large players. In such oligopolies the level of market concentration is high: the combined market share of the top four players may exceed 90% of the total market. See also Market, Structure and Oligopoly.
