5.2 Consumer Behaviour Research in the Nordic Countries: What’s Happening?
Consumer behavior research deals with consumers’ acquisition, use, and disposition of products. All of these consumer activities, however, have not been studied to the same extent. And we do yet not have good theories for everything covered by these activities. At the same time, consumers are increasingly in focus for many firms. Much more research is thus needed. And much research is indeed carried out –so much that it is impossible for a single individual to know what goes on. So, what exactly is goingon? The ambition of this track is to provide an overview of current consumer behavior research in theNordic countries.
