Abstract

Cet article explore les effets des concentrations horizontales dans des marchés reliés verticalement. Dans un modèle de concurrence imparfaite à deux niveaux, où les transactions verticales se font par l'intermédiaire d'un marché, on montre que des fusions horizontales engendrant des effets de taille sont, toutes choses égales par ailleurs, plus profitables en aval qu'en amont. De plus, la concentration dans un secteur réduit les incitations à la fusion dans l'autre secteur. Ces résultats sont confirmés par l'analyse d'un jeu de fusion permettant d'endogénéiser le processus de concentration.
