The Product-To-Space Ratio Effect: Space Influences Perceptions of Scarcity and Product Preference

This paper demonstrates the effect of product-to-space-ratio on preference and valuation. It shows that a product is perceived as more attractive and valuable when more space is provided to its display. We show that this effect is driven by scarcity perceptions that it persists under cognitive load.
