Abstract

This paper analyzes the profitability of vertical integration for an upstream monopoly facing a potential competitor. We show that it depends on the technology used by the firm when it integrates. We distinguish two types of technologies : standard technologies used by non-integrated firms, and non-standard technologies, reserved to integrated firms and implying the complete foreclosure of non-integrated firms.
