    Abstract

    L’obiettivo di questo lavoro è di verificare se l’introduzione del Regolamento CEE n.1400/2002 abbia avuto degli effetti sui margini di profitto dei produttori di automobili in Italia. Essendo le automobili prodotti differenziati, come in diversi studi presenti sull’argomento nella letteratura, si sono considerati nell’analisi svolta distinti sottomercati, i quali, ognuno con caratteristiche proprie, hanno costituito diversi segmenti oggetto d’indagine. Nel periodo che va dal 2003 al 2007, applicando una versione del modello di scelta discreta, abbiamo ottenuto delle stime delle elasticità dirette e incrociate della domanda di automobili per i distinti segmenti. Si è passati, poi, al calcolo dell’indice di Lerner, il quale rappresenta una misura del potere di mercato all’interno di essi. I risultati evidenziano un indice di Lerner che presenta un trend decrescente in prevalenza per i segmenti A (City car) e MP (Monovolume piccole), il che sarebbe indicativo di un possibile aumento del grado di concorrenza nel mercato delle automobili in Italia in tali segmenti. Infatti, nonostante i risultati ottenuti abbiano evidenziato che la concorrenza non è cresciuta nei segmenti medio-alti, bisogna tenere presente che il mercato italiano è concentrato prevalentemente nei segmenti medio-bassi, nei quali maggiore è il potere di mercato della Fiat, unico produttore nazionale, e in questi segmenti la concorrenza appare essere aumentata.
