In real life customers are motivated to buy more if there is more availability of product. In this study, we develop inventory model for inventory dependent demand with different holding cost function. Mathematical formulations are discussed for two situations i.e., power demand rate with inventory dependent holding cost functions and inventory-induced demand rate with time and inventory dependent holding cost functions. The second order approximation is applied for exponential terms to find numerical values. Numerical examples are discussed to illustrate the models proposed in this study. The sensitivity analysis is given for optimal (minimum) solution with respect to key parameters is also discussed.
