Abstract

Understanding the diffusion paradigm of emerging technological products is crucial for continuous development. In this study, a value-based diffusion model is proposed to forecast the market performance of new products. The model analyzes the interaction between the consumer’s psychological perspective on dynamic price and goodwill of the new product using a two-dimensional framework. A Cobb–Douglas production function is applied to model the different dimensions of product adoption. The model overcomes the limitation of previous studies by incorporating the variation in the adoption rate. In addition, this study also introduces a concept of change-point in the percentage of repeat purchases. A time instance at which the rate of occurrence of a phenomenon alters is called change-point. Moreover, the rapid introduction of new and improved version of products makes a potential buyer balk (i.e. hesitate or wait). Therefore, the actual potential market is always lower than the estimated market size. Thus, the concept of consumer balking is incorporated in the present study in a quantitative manner. Furthermore, the LCD monitor actual sales data is used to validate the model. Findings recommend that the proposed model have superior fitting and prediction ability as compared with conventional diffusion models. The novelty of the study is that it is flexible and has the ability to describe the real market scenario. Moreover, it includes multiple factors that drive the diffusion of new technology in data analysis.
