“… participants on such platforms can derive greater benefits from being in such an environment than simply being on their own or attempting to build parallel platforms. Any type of platform play, whether company-owned or third-party, and cooperating or competing with a global platform can boost earnings compared with not doing so. Developing one own’s platform is challenging because in a majority of markets global platforms are already thriving. ... research shows that incumbent companies that use third-party industry platforms at the same time as cooperating with global, more horizontal ones achieve the highest boost to profit growth.”
