is said when change in demand due to a change in the rate of the product. the price elasticity of
supply is the ratio of change in demand by a change in the rate of a product. the income elasticity
of demand is the change in demand due to change in the income of the customers and the cross
elasticity is the change in the demand of good A due to the rate of good B. the demand for the

Factors that influence demand for the company’s product(s)
the features which affect the demand of the Asahi beverages are-
1. Price of the given product- the price of the product affect the demand of the goods. when the
price increase, the demand of the goods decreases. there is a negative relation between the price
and demand of the product. the increase in price will decrease the demand for the product as it
decreases the satisfaction to the customers. If the Asahi beverage decreases the demand for the
product then the customer starts more demanding for the product. If the Asahi beverage increases
the price for their beverages then the customer decreases the demand for Asahi beverage
(Ramya, et al., 2016).
2. Price of the related commodity- the price of other beverages in the same industry will decrease the demand for our product. As the Fonterra decrease their price then the person starting shifting they are and decrease the demand for Asahi beverage. There are so many related commodity and companies of the beverage in Australia which affect the demand of customers for Asahi beverage.
3. Income of the customers- the income of the customer is the major factor that influences the
demand for a certain product. if the income of the particular person is increases that person shifts
to a good quality product of higher cost and decrease the demand for an inferior product. If the
income of the customers decreases and they are not able to afford for the Asahi beverages then they decrease the demand for the product (Ramya, et al., 2016).
4. Taste and preference of the customers- the taste of the person for the particular product change and affect the demand. if the customers taste is a change for the product then they decrease the demand for the product. the taste of the product is the factor that makes a person willing to purchase a product. The taste of the person is changed with time. sometimes the company is having a taste and preference for drinking cold drinks then they decrease the demand for beverages in the market.
5. Customers demanding for the product- the total number of customers who demand for the
Asahi beverage will influence the total demand of the goods. If the customers of the company are
increases then the demand for Asahi beverage is increasing. the number of customers and their
demand for beverages will affect the overall demand of the beverage in the industry. The
company has to increase its number of customers to increase the demand and overall cost.
Factors that influence the supply of the company’s products
1. Price of the goods- the rate of the goods and demand is having a positive relation. If the price
of the product is increases then the supply of the goods is increased which result in more profit
earning. The increase in the price of the product is increase the profit margin of the company
that's why the company increase the supply of the goods by the company (Tripathy, et al., 2016).
2. Production cost of goods- the production cost is the factor that influences the supply of the
product. The high cost and fewer profit margins will make suppliers unwilling to supply more
products. the company is trying to decrease the cost of production to earn more profit at a set rate
of the goods. the value of the production affects the supply of the profit due to a change in their
3. Natural condition- the climate condition affects the supply of the product. the natural condition affects the production of the product and the supply. sometimes climate makes it difficult to manufacture of the product and make it available in the market. in that condition, the market
supply of the product is decreasing (Tripathy, et al., 2016).
4. Technology- a better technology improves the production of the product which helps in
increasing supply in the market. the organization has to adopt new technology which reduces the
cost and gives more output. the increase in the production of the market makes supply easy in the
5. Factor price and their availability- the other factor also affects the supply in the market. the
factors such as raw material, machines, and equipment that affect the production of the product. the factors will affect the time of manufacturing of a product. if the factors are available easily at
a lower cost then it makes production increase and increases in supply. availability of labor at a
lower cost, raw material, and machines in sufficient quantity will increase the supply in the
6. Government policy- the government policies and regulations will affect the supply of the
product by the change in fiscal policy and industry policy. if the political party reduce the tax
rate then it raise in the profit margin of the company then the company increases supply in the
market. if the excise duty is increasing by the government then the company will decrease its
supply as the profit margin is decreased due to an increase in the cost of production.
Elasticity is the degree of change in demand and supply affected by the change in other factors.
This is due to a change in response to price and income. Elasticity is an economic concept that
helps in measuring the degree of changes. The elasticity is used to measure an affect in the
demanded for a goods and services regarding rate and income (Bas, et al., 2017).
types of elasticity
Price elasticity of demand- the demand elasticity is measured by the receptiveness of amount
demand to a price changes. the demand is a factor that affects by the range of the price
(Eskandarizadeh, et al., 2016).
price elasticity of supply- the supply elasticity is measured by the receptiveness of amount
supply to a variation in price. the demand is the factor which affects by the range of the price.
income elasticity of demand- the demand elasticity by income is measured by the receptiveness
of amount demand to a change in earning of the customer. the demand is a factor which affects
by the range of the income of the customers (Eskandarizadeh, et al., 2016).
cross elasticity of demand- the cross elasticity of demand is the changed in quantity demand of
1 company goods due to a vary in the rate of 2nd good. For example- the amount demand of
good A is affected due to a vary in the rate of good A.
Types of price elasticity of demand-
Inelastic demand– If the demand of the goods and services remains constant due to a vary in
rate. Then the demand is said to be inelastic and having a coefficient of elasticity that is less than
1.0. the factors affecting Inelastic demand Elasticity by Price are no substitute in the
marketplace, Infrequent purchases, necessities, and season (Labandeira, et al., 2017).
elastic demand- the demand is said to be elastic when the change in price is less than the change
in quantity. the company decreases their price in small quantity but the quantity is changed in
large quantity. it is said when the Asahi beverage is decreasing their price in small amount but
there is a large vary in the amount demand of the product by customer. the features influence by
the Inelastic demand Elasticity by price is homogenous products, many substitutes, and luxury
Unitary demand- the demand is said to be unitary when the change in price is total to the vary in
the amount demand by the customers. suppose if the Asahi beverage changes their price by 10%
then the quantity demanded by the customers is also changes by 10% (Labandeira, et al., 2017).
