The paper aims to analyze the competitive economic environment in the European Union in the period 2010-2015. In the first part of the research we have presented a few theoretical aspects relating to competition and then we analyzed the main investigations triggered by the European Commission in the field of competition for the period under review. Commission policies in matters of antitrust and mergers and application with their bigger efficacy had brought into the spotlight the welfare of consumers, in particular through a thorough economic analysis.
