Market Absorption Rate

Definition of "Market absorption rate"

The rate at which a market can absorb additional units of supply without causing market saturation and severe price distortions. For example, during a recessionary period, many homeowners may list their house for sale. Since the supply of homes entering the home resale market increased without a corresponding increase in demand, the market absorption rate has been exceeded, and the market price of the resale homes declines.
