The Joint Effects of Choice Assortment and Regulatory Focus on Choice Behavior

Past research suggests that if a set of brand variants makes up an alignable assortment, then increase in size of the assortment affects the market share of the brand in a positive manner. On the contrary, if a set of brand variants makes up a non alignable assortment, then increase in size of the assortment affects the market share of the brand in a negative manner. In other words, assortment type moderates the effect of assortment size on a brand’s market share. We demonstrate that this moderating relationship is not applicable for promotion and prevention focused consumers uniformly.
