The Toyota Company is a leader in the car manufacture, assemblage and distribution the world over. A very well-organized management style that the company uses has been one of the reasons for the firm's good performance. There are many other outstanding factors that have made the company achieve the niche of market leader. The market structure, the company operates in can not be definitely stated. Some may consider it to be a monopoly. This is due to the fact that the company is a dominant market player in car exportation. In fact, its demarcation strategy has made it enjoy almost monopolistic presence particularly, in the developing nations of the world. On the other hand, the market structure can be seen as an oligopoly. This is due to the fact that there are other key players like GM and Ford who are peer competitors. Toyota is eager to see what these competitors are doing and make sure it reacts to their actions in a way that will promise its market leadership. (Perner, 2009)
