Correct me if I'm wrong but here's what I checked.

I'll use FMU as an example but the same applies to probably all corps(I have'nt compared all yet).
The number of FMU corps(on 1 world)compared to their production per month/per year farly out weighs the shortage on the market. Meaning all the FMU corps produce more than enough in a month/year to keep FMU from having large shortages.
Did I miss something here?

Keto, surely it's the demand you need to look at. If the total production doesn't meet the demand...well you know. Try seeing if the total supply more or less tallies with the number of corps, remembering corps have different outputs. I still dont think it would be a valid comparison though as you have lots of contracting which wouldn't show but the corp would.

I remember this being asked before, and there was some complex answer about remaining demand from the previous month and product not all being sold. Especially nowadays as some corps still ask for like 200 over produced Q, they aren't going to sell so the demand remains.

Let us know if you get to the root of it.

No, I for one don't understand how you could calculate that there should be no shortage. The market says so and the number of FMU corps doesn't really say anything about wether they would cover the total demand or not.
