- The Federal Trade Commission has issued its 2022 Report on Ethanol Market Concentration.
- The Energy Policy Act of 2005 directs the Commission to perform an annual review of market concentration in the ethanol production industry to determine whether there is sufficient competition among industry participants to avoid price-setting and other anticompetitive behavior.
- As in prior years, the 2022 report concludes that [t]he 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 coordinate on price or output levels, is unlikely on a nationwide basis.
