Saavedra Forero, Karen Lorena | 2016
In this document the market structure of the rice miller industry in Colombia was analyzed. We make a descriptive and quantitative analysis that includes: concentration indexes, dominance indexes and the estimation of the market power based on the development of the stochastic frontier methodology enunciated by Kumbhakar, Baardsen and Lien (2012).
The main conclusion reached is that the industry is oligopolic with a moderate level of concentration that allows the millers have control on price fixing which is set in a framework of asymmetric relationships among millers, consumers and control entities.
