Market demand curve  is  the  graphic representation of  the  market demand which shows the quantities of the commodity to which the consumers are willing able to purchase during the period of time at various alternative prices/costs, while holding constant everything else which effects the demand. The market demand curve for the commodity is negatively sloped, indicating that more of the commodity is purchased at the lower price.
