Strategic games in a competitive market: Feedback from the users' environment

1. 

University of Cambridge, Wilberforce Road, Cambridge, CB30WA, United Kingdom

Received  September 2014 Revised  July 2015 Published  November 2015

We propose a model for the dynamics of a competitive market, in which strategic decision making of market players may be affected by the users' switching behaviour. A novel concept, habitual attraction, is introduced to reflect the resistance of users against changing their routinely used provider. The model can be adopted for a particular market and allows for dynamic learning. We demonstrate applications of the model to the internet search market in the context of competition law and regulation, where a user centred description is essential, for instance, in the anti-trust proceedings.
