This chapter concerns itself with the nature of the supply of doping products and the relevance of market-based concepts, with specific reference to conditions in Italy. Notwithstanding concerns about doping and the role of the criminal underworld in sport, relatively little is known about the supply of doping products. Against this backdrop, we analyze the supply of doping products by revisiting and building on the central findings of an empirical study of supply and demand in Italy and argue, first, that supply and demand come together to form a “market”; second, that this market is “quasi-illegal”; and third, that this conceptualization can help inform policymaking in Italy and elsewhere and might have bearing on future research in criminology and other disciplines.

Keywords:   illegal markets, doping products, quasi-illegal, sport, supply and demand
