  Oligopsony (Greek, ‘few buyers’) is a market in which there are so few buyers that they are highly interdependent: each must take into account the reactions of the others when contemplating a change. For example, if one firm offers to purchase at a higher price, it must recognize that the other purchasers will be affected so significantly that they may offer more rather than hold their purchase-price offers constant.
