Perfect competition

Perfect competition means:

  • There are many small companies relative to the size of the industry (no monopolies or companies big enough to control prices)
  • Products produced by the different companies are identical.  There are perfect substitutes and demand for the products are perfectly elastic.
  • Entry and exit barriers are low. Competitors can freely enter and exit the market.
