Country of Origin Effect on Product Usage Conspicuousness

ABSTRACT - The country-of-origin effect and product consumption conspicuousness are examined. Hypotheses are tested to understand the importance of the COO effect with respect to consumer’s purchasing intentions of public vs. private and luxury vs. necessity products. A product’s country of origin has a stronger effect when considering luxury products. The conspicuous aspect of the consumption comes second.

ABSTRACT -

The country-of-origin effect and product consumption conspicuousness are examined. Hypotheses are tested to understand the importance of the COO effect with respect to consumer’s purchasing intentions of public vs. private and luxury vs. necessity products. A product’s country of origin has a stronger effect when considering luxury products. The conspicuous aspect of the consumption comes second.
