market risk

The risk that a change in general market conditions — such as an economic downturn, the entry of a strong new competitor or the invention by another company of a superior competing product category — will negatively impact the company. Market risks are those that are shared by all existing competitors in a market, as opposed to risks that are specific to any one company.
