If a product becomes more fashionable, the demand for it will increase and if the same product becomes outdated, the demand for it will fall. As tastes and fashions change, demand will also change.

So, if it positive increase, the demand curve will shift to the right.


Price expected If the people think that prices are going to rise in the future, they are likely to buy more now before the price does go up. For example, when the government plans to increase the price of sugar the following week, the demand for sugar will immediately increase because consumers want to store for future use because of expected higher price. So, if price expected increase, demand curve for today will shift to the right (increase).
