Abstract

The objective of this research is to estimate the residual demand elasticity that rice exporters face in Saudi Arabia. We conducted an empirical exercise to assess the intensity of competition in Saudi Arabian rice import market during the 1993-2014 period. A model using the inverse residual demand method was specified and estimated. Estimation results show that Australia, India and Pakistan, acting as exporters, exercise market power and maintain marketing margins throughout the study period.
