These agreements are also created with the purpose of dividing the market, turning it into a monopoly of action only for those who are part of the established collusion, closing the doors to other companies that try on a smaller scale to be part of the group of free competition in the market. marketing area.

The alliances that are formed from the conformation of a Collusion guarantee the control of the benefits generated by the sale in a certain sector for those involved, however, the collusion works as explicit collusion and tacit collusion. The first of them is planned, even these take the form of cartels or chambers of industries, because sometimes there are so many belonging companies that it is necessary in a certain way, to manage the goods and benefits of each one with more caution. These explicit cartels are a common monopoly in many sectors in which the demand and supply are high in which the product is very important for the consumer, therefore small companies always arise with the intention of covering a part of the demand, but these are truncated by those that belong to the cartels, since they demand inclusion in the chamber, requesting payments and commitments that, as a new competition, they are not in the capacity to fulfill.

On the other hand, tacit collusion is generated automatically, spontaneously due to the lack of control of the demand in the corresponding item, one or two companies remain in collusion which set their price in the market for their product and its quality is the standard for the user who is not compromised with other brands but with the one that is available, then the benefits are controlled «Inadvertently» by a small producer. Tacit collusion is that same agreement that is made explicitly, but “without wanting to want”, either due to scarcity, product quality or the consumer’s need to consume it, such as a medicine.
