The Impact of Cognitive and Affective Country Image on Consumers’ Rational and Experiential Purchases
Drawing on a sample of over 1,200 consumers throughout Mainland China, this research examines how cognitive and affective country image influence consumer judgment of and purchase intention toward rational and experiential products. The findings demonstrate that the impact of country image on consumer purchase intention is mediated by general and category product image. Particularly, the impact of cognitive country image on category product image is fully mediated by general product image in both rational and experiential purchases. However, affective country image has a direct impact on category product image in experiential purchases but not in rational purchases.
