With increase in input price, the supply curve shifts to the left. Accordingly, equilibrium price increases and equilibrium quantity reduces in the product market. Conversely, when there is decrease in input price, the supply curve shifts to the right, causing decrease in equilibrium price and increase in equilibrium quantity.
