Slide 1: PRESENTATION ON – CONSUMER AND INDUSTRIAL BUYING BEHAVIOUR Presented By Prof. Khushboo Awasthi Mahakal institute of management Ujjain (M.P.) Slide 2: Consumer Buying Behaviour An important part of the marketing process is to understand why a customer or buyer makes a purchase. Without such an understanding, businesses find it hard to respond to the customer’s needs and wants. Marketing theory traditionally splits analysis of buyer or customer behaviour into two broad groups for analysis – Consumer Buyers and Industrial Buyers   Consumer buyers are those who purchase items for their personal consumption Industrial buyers are those who purchase items on behalf of their business or organization . Businesses now spend considerable sums trying to learn about what makes “customers tick”. The questions they try to understand are: • Who buys? • How do they buy? • When do they buy? • Where do they buy? • Why do they buy? Slide 3: Why Consumers Buy customers make purchases in order to satisfy needs. Some of these needs are basic and must be filled by everyone on the planet (e.g., food, shelter) while others are not required for basic survival and vary depending on the person. It probably makes more sense to classify needs that are not a necessity as wants or desires. consumer are referring to the actual buyer, the person spending the money. But is should also be pointed out that the one who does the buying is not necessarily the user of what is bought and that others may be involved in the buying decision. What Influences Purchasing Slide 5: Types of Consumer Purchase Decisions: Minor New Purchase – these purchases represent something new to a consumer but in the customer’s mind is not a very important purchase in terms of need, money or other reason (e.g., status within a group). Minor Re-Purchase – these are the most routine of all purchases and often the consumer returns to purchase the same product without giving much thought to other product options (i.e., consumer is brand loyalty). Slide 6: Major New Purchase – these purchases are the most difficult of all purchases because the product being purchased is important to the consumer but the consumer has little or no previous experience making these decisions. The consumer’s lack of confidence in making this type of decision often (but not always) requires the consumer to engage in an extensive decision-making process. Slide 7: Major Re-Purchase - these purchase decisions are also important to the consumer but the consumer feels confident in making these decisions since they have previous experience purchasing the product.
