  1. 1. Prepared By:- KVS, Delhi Region FACTORS AFFECTING ELASTICITY OF DEMAND

  3. 3. Prepared By:- KVS, Delhi Region FACTORS AFFECTING ELASTICITY OF DEMAND • Nature of commodity • Availability of close substitute • Number of uses • Proportion of total expenditure spent on the product • Level of income Income of consumer • Habit • Time period
  4. 4. Prepared By:- KVS, Delhi Region Nature of commodity • Necessities - Less elastic • Comforts - Elastic • Luxuries - More elastic
  5. 5. Prepared By:- KVS, Delhi Region 2) Availability of Close Substitutes • Good having number of close substitutes will have an elastic demand • Good with no close substitute will have an inelastic demand
  6. 6. Prepared By:- KVS, Delhi Region NUMBER OF USES • More the number of uses a commodity can be put to- More elastic is the demand and vice versa.
