Vertical Quasi-Integration Conclusions Notes Definition of vertical integration: Merger of companies at different stages of production and/or distribution in the same industry.
When a company acquires its input supplier it is called backward integration. Tapered integration is a term from organization theory that refers to a mix of vertical integration and market exchange. Upstream, a producer might manufacture some of the input itself and buy the remaining portion from independent firms.
Downstream, the manufacturer might sell a portion of its output through an in-house sales force and use independent sales forces to sell the remainder. Vertical integration may arise from technological economies of integration. In particular, less of the other intermediate inputs may be required to obtain the same output in the downstream process when the firm has integrated one of the upstream by: vertical quasi-integration, whereby existing relationships with customers and suppliers can become more tightly coupled; outsourcing, whereby activities previously performed within one enterprise due to high transaction risk may be shifted to third-party providers, in order to benefit from the higher production economics, such as scale and.
