Testing for Market Preemption Using Sequential Location Data
AbstractThis study uses time series data on supermarket location to test locational implications of a theory of market preemption. The primary implication tested is that an established firm has an incentive to construct new plants in a market such that they are only bounded by other plants that it owns. It is found that the data are consistent with a state dependent stochastic process in which neighbor relations matter and also that the underlying probabilities of the process are consistent with the existence of preemptive firm behavior.
