Disintermediation
Early discussions on the role of intermediaries in electronic markets focussed on the hypothesis that electronic markets would reduce the amount of - or even eliminate - intermediaries due to decreasing transaction costs. Omission of intermediary levels in the value chain due to direct interaction of producers and consumers is frequently named 'disintermediation'. However, a disintermediation to the extent forecasted could not be observed so far in electronic markets.
