Offline Version: PDF

Term limit pricing Definition: The strategic behavior process in which a firm with market control sets its price and output so that there is not enough demand left for another firm to enter the market and earn profits. The firm expands its output causing the price to fall, which discourages potential entrants to this market. This practice is most commonly undertaken by oligopoly firms seeking to expand their market shares and gain greater market control.
