A Dynamic Duopolistic Competition Model with Transfer Cost and Network Effect—The Case of Technology Import and New-Coming Consumers

Abstract: Based on the Hotelling horizontal differentiation model, this paper introduces both technology import and new-coming consumers to explore how the transfer cost and network effect influence the dynamic equilibrium of a two-stage game. We find that the network effect will increase the price elasticity of demand, enhance price competition among firms, and amplify the impact of technology gap, whereas the transfer cost will reduce the price elasticity and decrease consumer surplus. Moreover, technology import not only affects consumers’ utility, but also changes the market share and the equilibrium price. Finally, we put forward policy suggestions of controlling market power and promoting competition from the perspective of technology import and transfer cost.
