This paper reviews the overall micro, small, and medium-sized enterprise landscape in Asia, including the challenges and constraints faced by enterprises in physical (offline) and online markets.

It explores the unique circumstances and externalities that arise due to the special characteristics of platforms and how they impact merchants and other platform users. Findings suggest that the unique features of platforms, and the two-sided market structure they foster, require a bespoke policy approach from competition authorities and policymakers.
