Supply elasticity

The degree to which a price change for an item results from a 

Unit

 change in supply. Supply 

Elasticity

 is equal to percent change in quantity divided by percent change in price. The higher the 

Ratio

, the more dramatically the price changes in response to a change in supply. Supply 

Elasticity

 of a product is usually 

Dependent

 upon the current 

Supply

 of that product. At 

Low

 levels of supply, supply 

Elasticity

 tends to be 

High

 and it becomes less so as 

Supply

 rises. This is because as 

Supply

 increases, it becomes more difficult for producers to increase 

Supply

 further as production approaches 

Full

 capacity.
