Dear student,

In an oligopoly market when the price of a commodity is decreased the competitors response by decreasing the price of their brand so as to exist in the market, whereas when the price increases there is no response by the competitors. So, kinked demand curve model of oligopoly assumes that response to a price increase is less than the response to a price decrease.

Thank you
