Demand Forecasting in the Early Stage of the Technology's Life Cycle Using Bayesian update
Forecasting demand for new technology for which few historical data observations are available is difficult but essential to successful marketing. The current study suggests an alternative forecasting methodology based on a hazard rate model using stated and revealed preferences. In estimating the hazard rate, information is derived initially through conjoint analysis based on a consumer survey and then updated using Bayes¡¯ theorem with available market data. Based on the results of the empirical analysis, the model described here can significantly improve demand forecasting for newly introduced technologies.
