Italy: market share of the largest generator in the electricity market 2006-2017

The market share of the largest generators in the Italian electricity market decreased from 34.6 percent in 2006 to 19 percent in 2017. Enel, Eni and Edison were the main electricity providers in 2017, with market shares of 20.5, 9.6 and 7.6 percent, respectively.

Liberalization of the electricity market

It may be assumed that the decline in the market share of the major companies was due to the process of liberalization of the electricity market, which is currently ongoing in Italy. Most probably this transition made the market less monopolized. As a matter of fact, the volume of electricity sold in the deregulated market constantly increased. Conversely, the sales in the regulated market experienced a steady decrease over the past few years.  

Number of companies selling electricity

In the same way, the number of enterprises selling electricity in Italy increased between 2014 and 2017 , whereas the firms providing electricity in the framework of the regulated market became less numerous.
