Introducing International Brands in Emerging Markets

Introduction of an international brand into a new market involves an understanding of existing consumer perceptions. This relates to different local brands with differing kinds of sometimes long-standing psychological ties to consumers in the domestic market. Consumers also clearly vary in their preferences and perceptions about brands that come in from the outside. Variations in the cultural background of consumers should also have an impact on their preferences for global and local brands. This research investigates how local, national and global brands compete with each other in an emerging market. We do this in the context of choice modeling framework.
