When they are "the only game in town", either by underselling their competitor(s) and running them out of business, or by buying out their competitors. If you want a certain good or service, and you cannot get it anyplace else but from that business, that implies they are a monopoly, but that is full of legal wrinkles and contingent "ifs, ands and buts".
