Demand Determinants Variable Income of Buyers Price of Goods Prices of Related Goods Tastes/ Preferences Consumer Market Expectations (if price will go up) qD = f (price, income, prices of related goods, tastes, expectations) (Amadeo, 2017). Price Elasticity of Demand Price elasticity of demand is a measure of the relationship between a change in the quantity demanded of a particular good and a change in its price. Price elasticity of demand is a term in economics often used when discussing price sensitivity. The formula for calculating price elasticity of demand is: Price Elasticity of Demand = % Change in Quantity Demanded / % Change in Price If a small change in price is accompanied by a large change in quantity demanded, the product is said to be elastic (or responsive to price changes). Conversely, a product is inelastic if a large change in price is accompanied by a small amount of change in quantity demanded (Investopedia, 2017). Demand Graph Analysis Will be updated Supply Determinants When price changes, quantity supplied will change. That is a movement along the same supply curve. When factors other than price changes, supply curve will shift. Here are some determinants of the supply curve (Staff, 2017). Production cost: Since most private companies’ goal is profit maximization. Higher production cost will lower profit, thus hinder supply. Factors affecting production cost
