The Automotive Industry in China: Perspectives on Consumer Behaviour of Domestic and Foreign Produced Automobiles (2017)

Ref: market0141

China is the biggest consumer and producer of automobiles in the world today. In spite of this there has not been enough research in the field of Chinese consumer behavior. This particular study investigates the significance of country image and country of origin in Chinese consumer purchase intentions and evaluations of automobiles. The respondents were located in different cities of China who were surveyed. Conjoint analysis had been used for deriving the significance of country of origin compared to other attributes in making preference judgments whereas multiple regressions were used for deriving the significance of country image in the purchase intentions. It was seen that country of origin is as significant as brand name and more significant than safety, reliability and price in making product evaluations. It was also seen that workmanship, reliability and superior prestige were the most significant reasons for the purchase preferences of the Chinese respondents for the foreign automobiles compared to the Chinese brands. The results for the domestic and foreign manufacturers along with their implications have been discussed. The main aim of this research is to examine current situation of Chinese auto industry and the factors which have contributed on the success of immense growth rate of Chinese auto industry confronting severe competition from foreign automobile companies.
