This paper investigates the change of concentration ratio and discusses the implication of competition among the Top 100 firms during the period of 1980 and 1995. Using four measures of concentration, this paper finds that the level of concentration had been steadily decreasing and the competition among the leading firms in Taiwan was intensive. Though in the past, American firms had increased their representation among the leading firms, recently the entry of foreign firms did not affect the concentration ratio significantly. While the firms in the information industry increased its representation among the leading firms, the firms in the traditional industries decreased their representation in recent years. For those firms remaining in the Top 100 throughout the period, large firms tended to grow faster; and this implies that the competitive advantage of large firms could carry forward. Because the entry into and exit from the Top 100 are not unusual, the efforts to upgrade technology and engage in product differentiation by firms are going to be rewarding.
