Use of private sources of market share
data and experts in antitrust litigation
I. Introduction
Determining market share is exceedingly important in antitrust
litigation since market power is often inferred from market share
and market power is a necessary element to antitrust causes of
action. Market power-power over price-must be demonstrated
to establish unlawful monopolization under section 2 of the
Sherman Act.' The market has also been held to be a necessary
element in attempted monopolization cases by most courts.2
