Natural monopoly | Topics | tutor2u Economics

For a natural monopoly the long-run average cost curve falls continuously over a large range of output. The result may be that there is only room in a market for one firm to fully exploit the economies of scale that are available. In natural monopolies there is usually a very high cost to entering the market which makes it inefficient for there to be more than one producer.
