What are highly competitive markets?

Highly competitive markets are characterized by intense rivalry among companies, where multiple firms

strive to draw clients, increase market share, and set their goods and services apart. Industries such as

technology, telecommunications, e-commerce, and fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) are often

considered highly competitive due to low entry barriers, numerous players, rapid innovation, and evolving

consumer preferences. Companies continuously invest in research and development, marketing

strategies, and customer engagement in these markets to stay relevant and competitive. Pricing wars,

product differentiation, strategic partnerships, and customer retention efforts are common tactics

businesses use to maintain or improve their positions and drive growth in highly competitive markets.
