This study explores the interactive market behaviours by examining mimetic market entry. We develop several constructs that capture the structural properties of competitive environment faced by a focal firm, and suggest that these properties moderate firm's tendency to mimic through affecting the interfirm competitive and learning dynamics. Data on pharmaceutical drug manufactures during the period of 1993 to 2001 shows that a firm is more likely to diversify itself into a new market that has been served by many of existing competitors in its original markets. Moreover, two structural properties of competitive environment moderate a firm's tendency to mimic. Direct market encounter between a firm's competitors promotes mimetic entry, while similarity between a firm's competitors in terms of product-market profiles discourages mimicry.
