Title: Model exit in a vertically differentiated market: Interfirm competition versus intrafirm cannibalization in the computer hard disk drive industry
Author: Ruebeck, Christopher S.
Abstract: What characteristics of a product’s local market make its withdrawal more likely? This study investigates the importance of intrafirm “cannibalization” of a product’s demand by products manufactured by the same firm versus interfirm competition from others’ products. While both forces impact product withdrawal, cannibalization has a more robust and significant effect. Hedonic price regressions also reveal higher discounting of older models’ quality-adjusted prices, strengthening the argument for caution when treating list prices as proxies for transaction prices.
