Monopoly can cause enormous market problems. The common characteristics of an enterprise evolution are much like those of a biodiversity evolution. In this paper, using the complex system theory and the ecological population evolution theory, we study and discover that an enterprise scale evolution trend accords with a Logistic model. After establishing a Lotka-Volterra evolutionary model of competition between two enterprises, we establish a Lotka-Volterra model of competition among multiple enterprises in a market. Through the analysis of these models, we can understand the essence of enterprise monopoly. By the analyses above, the government can forecast enterprise monopoly for a market in order to avoid corresponding risks early.
