Study on Collection Strategic Choice for Industrial Buyers in Agricultural Biomass Supply Chain Market

Fan Zhang

This research aims to clarify the difference among three collection strategies for agricultural biomass, i.e., commitment strategy, pure competition strategy and vertical integration strategy. As a result, pure competition strategy is the most efficient strategy among the three; commitment strategy will bring the most aggregate biomass supply but is less efficient than, pure competition strategy; vertical integration will bring secure biomass supply for integrated industrial buyer but it is at the sacrifice of aggregate profits of all decision makers, especially the profit of non-integrated industrial buyer.
