Key Variations Between Elastic and Inelastic Demands

Talking business? What must be the first thing to consider? Well, one must have a clear knowledge of the market response of product they want to deal in. In simple terms, the product needs to be supplied faster when people are not stopping themselves from purchasing. And, the product must go out of the context, if there is no one to even think about purchasing it. In this article, we will be discussing the two terms with the same objectives but with differences. The terms are:

  • Elastic Demand
  • Inelastic Demand

 

Let’s take a closer look at how different are the respective terms:

 

  • Elastic demand is defined as the critical change in the requirement of a specific product within the society due to change in the pricing of the respective product. Whereas, inelastic demand is defined as how small the change is on the demand for a specific product with the change in the pricing.
  • When there is a change in the demand for a specific product because of its pricing difference, then the respective product is acknowledged as elastic. And, when there is no such specific change in the demand of the respective product with the change in pricing, the respective product is referred to as inelastic.
  • The most relevant example of the elastic product is petrol, as with the increase in price, the demand literally becomes less or it decreases gradually. And the best example for the inelastic product is milk, as the demand does not have any impact at all whether the price goes up or down.
  • The formula for calculating the values becomes same as the total change in the demand of the product is exclusively divided by the total change in the variation in the price rise or fall.
  • For the companies, the elastic products are certainly not much feasible because the demand keeps on shifting, but it is completely opposite with the inelastic products as the demand remains the same whether the price goes up or down.

The demand of the elastic products literally varies according to the range of variation with which the price has changed. It might have an impact on the quantity of purchase if the price has gone up but with a not much major difference. The products which do not have any sort of alternative in the market will exclusively fall in the section of inelastic demand. And when the products have the alternatives, the buyers will exclusively shift to them when the prices take a toll and this makes them fall in the elastic demand section. Hence, it can be stated that the less the alternatives are, the more your products become inelastic. Lastly, if the buyers have spent a huge amount of money in purchasing a specific product, then the respective product will fall in the elastic section for ones who very much price sensitive.
