• Homogenous product: All the firms under perfect competition produce homogenous products. Homogeneity of the product refers not only to the physical characteristics of the products like size, design, quality etc but also the environmental factors like location of the seller, behaviour of the seller. Thus the products are same both physically as well as environment-wise.
