Abstract: We test econometrically whether the sole Danish producer of cement holds a dominant
position in the Danish market for (grey) cement. In import penetration tests, we find that its
pricing and quantity decisions are independent of import price and quantity, implying that it can
act to a considerable extent independently of its competitors. We also test whether it can act
independently of its customers and find that its demand is inelastic with respect to its price. It thus
holds a dominant position in the sense of the European Court of Justice. Having established
dominance, we go on to illustrate that based on our data, it is difficult to conclude that it has
abused its dominant position in the sense of the Court.
