In case of perfect competition market, the price is determined by the industry by the interaction of market demand and market supply of the whole industry. The demand and supply represented below is the total demand and total supply of industry which by their interaction help to determine the equilibrium price. No individual firm can influence the equilibrium price since its share in the total supply is insignificant. Rather, it has to accept the price determined by the industry and it has to sell its products at that price.
