Abstract [en]

Relationships among competitors in the same market have for a long time been regarded as consisting of only competition. By competing, the competitors have been forced to develop their products, although this is not always a demand from the buyers. Moreover, competition is regarded as the main driving force behind better internal efficiency. Lately, the importance of cooperation in order to pool resources together has been suggested as an effective way of enabling competitors to be more effective. Shorter lead times, distribution of costs for developing new products, more efficient production processes, and focusing on core competition are mentioned as some of the reasons competitors should form cooperative relationships that can range from informal long-term relationships between competitors and how they can affect their business.
