The knowledge of the determinants of market demand for a product and the nature of relationship between the demand and its determinants proves very helpful in analyzing and estimating demand for the product.

- Price of the good- .
- Price of the related goods-substitutes, complements and
- Level of consumers’ income
- Consumers’ taste and preference
Advertisement of the product
- Consumers’ expectations about future price and supply position
- Demonstration effect and ‘bend-wagon effect’
- Consumer-credit facility
- Population of the country
- Distribution pattern of national income.
These factors also include factors such as off-season discounts and gifts on purchase of a good, level of taxation and general social and political environment of the country. However, all these factors are not equally important. Besides, some of them are not quantifiable. For example, consumer’s preferences, utility, demonstration effect and expectations, are difficult to measure.
