Derived Demand

Derived demand is demand that comes from (is derived) from the demand for something else. Thus, the demand for machinery is derived from the demand for consumer goods that the machinery can make. If there is low demand for consumer goods, there is low demand for the machinery that can make them. Demand for bricks is derived from spending on new construction projects.
