A competitive model of market structure with consumptive delays is considered. The local stability of the positive equilibrium and the existence of local Hopf bifurcation are investigated by analyzing the distribution of the roots of the associated characteristic equation. The explicit formulas determining the stability and other properties of bifurcating periodic solutions are derived by using normal form theory and center manifold argument. Finally, numerical simulations are given to support the analytical results.
