Description

The Federal Trade Commission has issued its 2017 Report on Ethanol Market Concentration, an annual report required by the Energy Policy Act of 2005 to determine whether there is sufficient competition among industry participants to avoid price-setting and other anticompetitive behavior.

As in prior years, the 2017 report concludes that the low level of concentration and large number of market participants in the U.S. ethanol production industry continue to suggest that the exercise of market power to set prices, or to coordinate on price and output levels, is unlikely.

The Commission vote to approve the report was 2-0. (FTC File No. P063000; the staff contact is Steven Couper, Bureau of Competition, 202-326-3349).

The Federal Trade Commission works to promote competition, and protect and educate consumers. You can learn more about consumer topics and file a consumer complaint online or by calling 1-877-FTC-HELP (382-4357).
