Recent studies on Closed-Loop Supply Chains have highlighted the need of empirical research to identify the relative importance of market determinants. In this paper we shed light on the market determinants of price differentials between new and remanufactured products in Electronics by using data on purchases made on eBay UK. The empirical analysis is carried out by means of linear regression methods which are capable of controlling for the presence of collinearity among the explanatory variables. Our empirical results suggest seller positive reputation, the length of warranties, the proxies of demand and supply of remanufactured products, the duration and end day of remanufactured product listings are important determinants of price differentials. Most importantly, we find seller identity plays an important role as our empirical results are predominantly driven by transactions carried out by non manufacturer-approved vendors.
