Dominance with 15 Percent of Market Share?

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

The Russian Federal Anti-Monopoly Service has proposed amendments to its Trade Act (antitrust law).  According to its press release:

     Currently FAS Russia has developed some amendments to the Trade Act, changing the market
     dominance threshold for trading organizations from 35% to 15%. Also it will introduce special
     collective dominance thresholds.

I am unaware of any country with a dominance threshold as low as 15 percent.  Is this a new low for what a "dominant" firm might be?

It seems they want to (re)impose price regulations and in order to do so lower the market share. Election season in Russia
