Gorilla

A company that has the greatest market share in a particular industry without having a monopoly. A gorilla usually has greater leeway in its decisions; for example, it may charge a higher price for its products without fear of losing too much business. Large companies, such as Wal-Mart or Microsoft, are considered gorillas.
