Corner the Market

If a company corners the market for a particular type of product or service, it is more successful than any other company at selling that particular product or service. For example:

With a current market share of 48.6%, the company has
cornered the smartphone market.
Has China
cornered the solar panel market?
German brands have
cornered the luxury automobile market.

In other words, when a company
corners the market, it dominates it.

The following video from 2009, which is entitled
Convenience Store Corners the Market, shows how a well-known convenience store has cornered the market in the United States.
