In economics , industrial organization or industrial economy is a field that builds on the theory of the firm by examining the structure of and, therefore, the boundaries between firms and markets. Industrial organization adds real-world complications to the perfectly competitive model, complications such as transaction costs ,  limited information , and barriers to entry of new firms that may be associated with imperfect competition. It analyzes determinants of firm and market organization and behavior as between competition  and monopoly ,  including from government actions. There are different approaches to the subject. One approach is descriptive in providing an overview of industrial organization, such as measures of competition and the size- concentration of firms in an industry. A second approach uses microeconomic models to explain internal firm organization and market strategy, which includes internal research and development along with issues of internal reorganization and renewal.
