Hi Class,
I work for a large aerospace company that manufactures a wide range of parts for both commercial and military aircraft. The aerospace industry is very competitive; however, I feel that it is oligopolistic since several large companies control the vast majority of the market. This is due to how the aerospace industry is structured overall, several large aircraft manufacturers such as Airbus and Boeing have the majority of the market share, this is inherent of the business since it takes years and billions of dollars to develop safe and reliable aircraft which means not just any start-up can break into such a competitive industry. In summary, the company I work for function in an oligopolistic market since it only competes against a handful of other companies, it is however very price competitive to the point of having to bid against other companies every few years in order to be awarded new or existing contracts.
