Barriers to Entry

Although cost differences are the most important factor behind market structures, barriers to entry can also prevent effective competition. Barriers to entry are factors that make it hard for new firms to enter an industry. When barriers are high, an industry may have few firms and limited pressure to compete. Economies of scale act as one common type of barrier to entry, but there are others, including legal restrictions, high cost of entry, advertising, and product differentiation.
