2-L: Decomposing Consumer Evaluations of Brand Extensions: Market-Based Congruity Versus Engineering-Based Congruity

For brand extensions, we identify two fundamental and robust dimensions of congruity: market-based congruity (including target-market, image, usage-occasion fit scale items) and engineering-based congruity (including feature, function, resource fit). We further find that market-based congruity has a much larger effect on consumers’ overall evaluation of brand extensions than engineering-based congruity.
