Demand refers to a consumer’s desire and willingness to pay for a good or service. Consumers will always try to pay the lowest prices they can while suppliers will always try to maximize their profits. Businesses must determine the amount of demand consumers have for their products and services to maximize their profits. Samsung phones usually run for about $1000 when they first come out. Let’s say that Samsung releases a new limited-edition phone – the demand will be higher than normal and Samsung has the opportunity to raise the price to maximize their profits.
The relationship between price and quantity demanded is the demand relationship, the quantity demanded is the amount of a product people are willing to buy at one particular price.

The amount of a certain good or service which producers are willing to supply for a certain price is known as the quantity supplied. describes the total amount of a specific good or service that is available to consumers

The law of demand states that, if all other factors remain equal, the quantity bought of a good or service is fully dependent on the price. A lower amount of goods will be demanded as the price rises. If a coffee shop raises the prices of a cup of coffee from $1.50 to $2.00, the quantity of coffee demanded will decrease. People will either make their own coffee at home, or reduce their number of trips to the coffee shop. People will avoid purchasing the coffee if it lessens their ability to purchase other items and there’s a cheaper alternative.

The law of supply states that, if all other factors remain equal, as the price of a good or service increases, the supply will also increase, and vice versa. If the price of an item goes up, the suppliers will increase the price to maximize their profit. If the price of an item goes down, the supplier produces less of the product (they sometimes may even discontinue it). Apple uses the law of supply to price their products. Apple dropped the prices of the iPad mini 3 when the iPad mini 4 came out, shortly after, Apple discontinued the mini

The allocation of goods is at its ideal efficiency because the amount of goods supplied is exactly the same as the amount demanded. Companies are satisfied with the money they’re making, and individuals are satisfied with the money they’re spending. Equilibrium in the real market is unlikely. Prices of goods/services are constantly changing depending on supply and demand. Companies just don’t have enough money to cut down on production/prices and still make a decent profit.

Excess supply occurs when prices of good are set above the equilibrium price. When the prices of goods are too high, consumers will be unlikely to purchase the goods. There are way more goods being produced than there are being consumed. In the situation of excess supply, the sellers will try to clear their stock by reducing the price of the good/service. Lower prices attract more consumers, resulting in an increase in demand and a decrease in supply. They might even slow down or stop production to help reach equilibrium
