Consumer Segments Based on Attitudes Toward Luxury: Empirical Evidence from Twenty Countries
AbstractThis article proposes an international segmentation of consumers based on their attitudes toward luxury. We perform a two-stage empirical study with a data set that combines samples from 20 countries. We provide a substantive interpretation of the results to show that three attitude segments dominate in a Western cultural context. We discuss several directions for future research based on the findings. Copyright Springer Science + Business Media, Inc. 2005
