Abstract

The Purpose of this article is to analyse how a market should be defined. The main purpose of market definition is to identify in a systematic way the competitive constraints that the undertakings involved face.

This paper consists of two part; Part 1 is the historical review of case law on the market definition in EU, US, and Japan. Next, Part 2 is the economic review of the market definition. From an economic point of view, for the definition of the relevant market, demand substitution constitutes the most immediate and effective disciplinary force on the suppliers of a given product, in particular in relation to their pricing decisions. In this perspective this paper reviewed the Market Definition Guidelines in EU, US, and Japan.
