Describe and explain the likely causes of the rise in the demand for Champagne in recent years. Tim Hoffmann Economics 11 IB HL 23/09/03 The rise in demand for champagne recently can be set down to certain factors.

A fall in the price of substitutes would also increase the demand for champagne. ...read more.


An increase in population creates quite a simple example: more people, more consumption. The more people there are the more possible consumers to spend money on champagne. Finally, the price expected can create a rise in demand.
