Imperfect competition

In economics, imperfect competition refers to a situation where the characteristics of an economic market do not fulfil all the necessary conditions of a perfectly competitive market, resulting in market failure. The structure of a market can significantly impact the financial performance and conduct of the firms competing within it. The degree of market power refers to the firms' ability to affect the price of a good and thus, raise the market price of the good or service above marginal cost (MC). Moreover, market structure can range from perfect competition to a pure monopoly. Perfect competition is a market situation and competitive outcome that economists use as a benchmark for economic welfare analysis and efficiency.
