Exploring the Impact of Product Design Characteristics on Sales
Drawing upon longitudinal data from the U.S. auto market between 1984 and 2003, we demonstrate how product aesthetics have played a role in customers’ preferences. Our study contributes to the limited literature on the impact of design elements on consumer behavior and has important implications for new product development teams.
