Abstract: Abstract This paper extends the Hall–Roeger methodology in order to investigate the market structure and to measure the degree of market power in the Greek manufacturing sector over the period 1984–2007 as a whole and by subsector at the two-digit SIC level. The present paper also estimates the net and the total welfare losses in these market power scenarios. The bootstrap method is applied to assign measures of accuracy to the statistical estimates. The empirical results indicate some degree of market power and thus associated welfare losses for each subsector in the Greek manufacturing sector over the period 1984–2007.
