000027762 520__ $$aThis study evaluates long-term structural adjustments in fresh grapefruit packing under aggregate market pressures, including those from retail concentration. While individual firms enter and exit, Markov-model results are indicative of an industry near equilibrium with little expectation of change in the distribution of firm sizes given existing patterns of sector adjustment. Estimation of Lorenz curves and corresponding Gini coefficients fully support Markov analysis findings. Lags in the packing sector adjustment process in the face of sweeping forces of change in fresh produce markets are likely to put this sector at a relative disadvantage within the supply chain.
