The term equilibrium price refers to a state in which the quantity of goods supplied is equal to the demand for the same goods. Prices are typically stable for a product when they reach the equilibrium price.
The equilibrium price is found at the point where demand for a product or service is exactly equal to supply. When supply and demand are plotted against price and quantity, the equilibrium price is found at the point where the supply curve intersects with the demand curve.
Market forces will tend to bring supply and demand into balance; resulting in the following three generalizations:
