Impact of interpersonal influences, brand origin and brand image on luxury purchase intentions: Measuring interfunctional interactions and a cross-national comparison

  • Shukla, Paurav

This study provides insights into how interpersonal influences and branding cues shape consumer luxury purchase intentions. Using a sample of British and Indian consumers, this study investigates and compares structure, properties and mean levels of susceptibility to interpersonal influences and highlights the interfunctional interactions. While normative interpersonal influences were found to be significant across nations, the role of informational interpersonal influences was significant only among Indian consumers. It was also observed that British consumers relied increasingly on branding cues. Moreover, brand image was found to be a significant moderator between normative interpersonal influences and luxury purchase intentions in both countries.
