Notes
  • This paper provides evidence of the usefulness of aggregated point-of-sale scanner data to infer the positioning of competing brands, providing valuable information for category management and hence facilitating decision making. Specifically, the authors propose a methodology to study the internal market structure based on market share models with latent heterogeneity when only macro-level time series data (not individual choices) are available. The proposed approach assumes a multidimensional decomposition, latent in the preference structure that is implicit to these types of models. By empirically applying this approach, the authors (1) simultaneously identify both latent dimensions of competing brands and latent segments with different brand preferences, (2) explain the competitive positioning of brands without using disaggregated consumer panel data, and (3) achieve greater predictive performance. The findings offer insights to academics and practitioners interested in improving the practice of category management.
