A quantitative survey of more than 2400 manufacturers and consumers in China, Germany, India, and the United States, the report centers on four industries that were selected to demonstrate a variety of product typologies that encompass complexity, price, frequency of purchase and frequency of use: high-tech/consumer electronics, home building materials, food and smart appliances.
This year's Product Mindset seeks to better understand market forces; drivers of decisions; attitudes toward safety, quality, performance, sustainability and innovation; and the motivations and reasons behind these attitudes.
The International Roundtable welcomes Suzanne Lavin once again for an engaging evening of insight and understanding.
