Visualizing competitive relationships in large markets (i.e., markets containing over 1,000 products) is challenging. We discuss a new model called DRMABS (Decomposition and Re-assembly of MArkets By Segmentation) for such applications. DRMABS combines methods from multiple research disciplines such as biology, physics, computer science, and sociology with a new method of submarket-centric mapping to visualize asymmetric competition in large markets in a single two-dimensional map.
