      • Derived demand is demand that comes from the demand for something else. Thus, the demand for machinery is derived from the demand for consumer goods that the machinery can make. ...
      • Demand for bricks is derived from spending on new construction projects.
    • Composite demand
      • Composite demand happens when goods or services have more than one use so that an increase in the demand for one product leads to a fall in supply of the other.
      • E.g. milk which can be used for cheese, yoghurts, cream, butter and other products. If more milk is used for manufacturing cheese, ceteris paribus there is less available for butter
