Supply curve

A graph showing the hypothetical 

Supply

 of a product or service that would be available at different price 

Point

. The 

Supply

 curve usually slopes upward, since higher prices give producers an incentive to 

Supply

 more in the hope of making greater revenue. In the 

Short

 run the price-supply tradeoff is greater than in the 

Long

 run. In the 

Short

 run, an increase in price will usually cause an increase in supply, but the leading producers can only manage a limited increase. However, in the longer 

Term

, new producers enter the 

Market

 attracted by higher prices, and the 

Supply

 at each price increases more significantly. In theory, in the most extreme cases, 

Supply

 can be totally unreactive to price (special cases of very uncompetitive markets), or 

Supply

 can be infinite at a particular price (e.g. a highly 

Competitive

 market).
