Port Washington, N.Y. - The NPD Group has launched a new consumer tracking service for the appliance industry.
The latest tracker, which surveys consumers from NPD's online panel of nearly 2 million participants, offers comprehensive market research on consumer behavior and attitudes, and can provide an accurate, detailed view of the major and small home appliance markets, the research firm said.
As with NPD's just-announced
, the new appliance tracker features improved survey and sampling methodology with increased transaction counts, and total market size estimates aligned with NPD's point-of-sale data.
The appliance tracker also encompasses such new categories as home health care and dehumidifiers, and offers new services and measures including draw/close rates and enhanced purchase motivators.
"We are excited to provide our clients with a more comprehensive view of the total appliance marketplace," said Perry James, president of NPD's home and office supplies sector. "NPD's new consumer tracker will give clients a clearer picture of their consumers' decision-making process, allowing them to identify opportunities and drive success."
