Daniel Gore Market definition in merger control: An overview of EU and national case law


Market definition has long lain at the heart of competition law and economics, and rumours of its death in recent years remain greatly exaggerated. Market definition remains a central topic of debate at the highest levels of competition policy : EU Commission President von der Leyen has reportedly mooted a reconsideration of how market definition is assessed, while Commissioner Vestager has announced that the first initiative of her second term will be a review of the 1997 Notice on Market Definition. This review is expected to encompass, inter alia, market definition for digital markets and the scope of geographic markets in light of continued globalisation.
