captive pricing

Definition

Premium pricing levels applied to components of a product that consumers have already purchased. The customer cannot avoid purchasing the components, such as replacement razor blades, without sacrificing the value of the core product, such as the razor itself, enabling the company to achieve much higher profit margins than are possible for regular products.
