Is IEX (Indian Energy Exchange Ltd) a monopoly stock?
Yes, for now, its an undisputed monopoly.
Although having such a monopoly slows down the industry as a whole too so that has to be factored in. If we look at BSE and NSE. Both the exchanges compete to offer their best and hence they invest in technology to attract the consumer. Hence, competition offers the choice and the best price to the consumer. Competition expands the industry as a whole.
To counter this Regulators are coming up with a Market Coupling Authority, which may hurt IEX’s market share and allow for new players to enter.
The best case Scenario for IEX would be if competition does increase, but it still is able to keep a strong control over it. i.e A Bigger fish in a Bigger pond.
