    En este trabajo realizamos una revisión de los modelos de mercado (monopolio, duopolio y competencia perfecta) en los que se ha utilizado la teoría de colas. El uso de la teoría de colas permite tratar modelos más realistas al describir la demanda y la producción a través de procesos estocásticos, incorporando así la incertidumbre. El objetivo que perseguimos consiste en analizar el proceso de aplicación de una teoría puramente estadística en la modelización de las estructuras de mercado tradicionales. De este modo pondremos de manifiesto las ventajas de su utilización así como las aportaciones que la misma permite obtener desde el punto de vista de la economía. In this paper we review some market models (monopoly, duopoly and perfect competition) in which queuing theory has been used. The use of queuing theory lets us work on more realistic models depicting demand and production through stochastic processes, that is, incorporating uncertainty with supply and demand. The goal of this paper is to analyse the application process of a purely statistical theory in modelling different traditional market structures. Thus, we show advantages of its use in this context, as well as contributions that it lets us obtain from the economic point o view.
