Abstract

Building a strong brand is essential for every business to gain higher market share and higher return on investment. But a strong brand is required to create satisfied consumers, and one of the most important and basic ways of creating a satisfied consumer is by providing quality products and/or services to the consumers. A brand’s pursuit to attain higher level of consumer satisfaction and creating a loyal customer base largely depends upon the quality of the product offered under the brand name. Although theoretical studies have provided constructs of product quality dimensions, very few empirical researches are found to validate them. Studies related to the impact of different product quality attributes on consumer satisfaction are also not largely found in management research. The present study aims to bridge this gap. The study is conducted on e-rickshaw battery brands. The purpose of the study is primarily to identify the product quality attributes of the battery brands and then finding out their impact on consumer satisfaction. The study was conducted in West Bengal, India with a large sample size, and the findings show that the study has been successful in the identification of product quality dimensions of the battery brands and also in finding their impact on consumer satisfaction.
