Abstract

Theory demonstrates that demand variations can have nonmonotonic effects on pricing in supergames with capacity constraints. Furthermore, this nonmonotonic relationship can be a function of capacity utilization rates. Time series data from 25 regional cement markets are used to examine this results empirically. No statistically significant relationship is found between demand variations, pricing and excess capacity.
