I assert that the preparation of this work has been completed in accordance with ethical standards appropriate to students of UNSW@ADFA and is a true representation of my current capabilities in this course. What factor or factors would give a firm market power as a purchaser? How might a firm possessing market power use procurement to build and sustain competitive advantage derived from (end) product innovation? In being able to determine any single or set of contributing factors that may give a firm market power as a purchaser, it is best to first agree a definition for market power and how it applies to purchasing. In its broadest definition market power can be defined as the ability of a firm to be able to influence or control terms and or conditions on which goods are bought and sold. There are also numerous schools of thought as to what precisely constitutes market or buyer power. The traditional sense is to define it in terms as an inverse of a monopoly, whereby the buyer can set prices profitably below competitive levels, in what some label a monopsony where there is either only one or a concentrated number of buyers within a competitive selling market (Mellsop and Counsell 2009). However a more holistic approach to buyer power is rather than forcing lower prices, being able to negotiate more favourable terms. However, market power......
