Trends in European Competition Law Digital Dominance The Battle Ahead

Globally, competition regulators have increased their attention to digital companies since big tech firms and dual platforms have the capabilities to gain disproportional advantages. Competition and antitrust laws aim to protect the integrity of competition in a particular market by creating and enforcing regulations geared towards anti-competitive behavior. Recently, there has been a trend of larger, tech-backed companies using their data intelligence and superior resources to dominate digital markets. The competition problem grows bigger yearly as new technologies continue to emerge. Such dominance in the marketplace keeps smaller suppliers from having a fighting chance. Competition regulators throughout Europe, including the European Commission, have been highly critical of this anti-competitive behavior and have taken steps to implement changes in enforcement of competition laws. The changes specifically target the tendency for tech giants to overpower the digital markets sector.
