Task 3

3.1 Various market structures

Pricing and output decisions are the major decisions of every business as these decisions impacts the growth of the business. These decisions varies from economy to economy as each country has their own policies and plans so they have their own method to determine the price and output of the products so prices and output determination in various market decision are as follows.

a) Perfect competition: In perfect competition market there are large numbers of sellers as well as buyers in the market so perfect substitutes are easily available in the market. The entry and exit of the firms is also very easy process. Firms in perfect competition cannot control the prices as the prices are determined by demand and supply so these firms can control the level of output which are determined at a level of maximum profit. Perfect competition markets are involved in pure allocation of efficiency (McDermott, 2015). In this structure pricing and output decisions are taken on the basis of market demand and supply of products and services. For example, Primark.

b) Monopoly: Monopoly is a market where firms enjoy the isolated rights of undifferentiated products. In this market firms can control the prices as the consumers in the market are willing to pay any price for their differentiated products. There are no substitutes available in the market so firms under monopoly have a full control over the prices of the product and they enjoy the monopoly rights in the market. In this market consumers have to pay more prices of the goods than their actual cost as there are no substitutes available which can fulfil the preferences of the consumers. Under this, pricing and output decisions is taken through only individual who sell same products and services.

c) Oligopoly: oligopoly has large shape of market with a few firms. Cost structures in oligopoly are the same but still the profits for the firms in oligopoly is higher as there are very less competitors in the market. Prices in oligopoly are higher than perfect competition and monopoly but the outputs are lower in the market. Even after the high costs the demand for these firms does not decrease in this market. According to competitive strategy, pricing and output decisions are made within the market (Chaney, 2013).

d) Duopoly: Duopoly is a market where there are two sellers of the product who are selling almost same products in the market. In duopoly both the sellers may decide their own prices or can decide a single price mutually and another thing is that both the sellers can cooperate with each other or compete with each other so the prices and output decisions are depending upon the firms who are involved in it (Shuai, 2016). Two firms reviews activities and actions to develop market decisions.

3.2 Market forces

Market forces refer to the demand and supply in the market and these both are the terms which controls the whole market. Demand and supply are the two important factors which are very essential to run a business. Demand refers to the desires of buyers in regard to the quantity of product or services and supply refers to quantity which the market can offer to the customers.

Demand: Market forces includes demand of the product which shape the organisational responses like law of demand says that if all other factors are assumed to be constant if the prices of the products are increased the demand of the product will decreased as well if the prices of the products decreases the demand for the product will increase. There is an opposite relationship between price and demand as if the amount of the product goes high then there are very less buyers in the market who will go for buying the product at higher prices so the increase or decrease of prices in the market affects the demand of the product and this directly affects to the revenues of the organisation.

Price of coffee

Supply: Market forces includes supply which refers to the quantity which can be offered by the market and there is a direct relationship between the price and supply of the product as law of supply says that if all the other factors are assumed constant the law of supply identifies the quantity which can be sold at a particular price as if the price of the product increases the supply for the product also increases and if the price of the product decreases then the supply for the product also decreases this means that the produces supply more quantity at higher prices which leads to generation of revenues for the organisation (Lok, & Baldry, 2016).

Rise in market

Supply curve

Equilibrium: When the demand and supply of the product are equal then the economy is said to be at Equilibrium. At equilibrium there is the most efficient use of resources as the goods are supplied to the quantity at which they are demanded, at this point all the markets present in the economy are satisfied with the economic condition of the market.
