Abstract [en]

The competition amongst companies is getting tougher and the economic markets are getting even bigger with new products and businesses. One way for companies to differentiate themselves from the competitors is through packaging design. If the merchandise is to send a reliable and solid message to consumers, the attributes of the packaging must be consistent and uniform. If the different attributes are not coherent, the message loses credibility towards the consumer. Through the sent messages, the pack signals the products’ expected quality and price.

This paper includes two studies, in which the main objective is to discover and build understanding about Swedish consumers’ perception of a product’s price depending on the pack’s design. The focus of this paper is based upon household products. The first study is solely focused on consumers’ opinions on package design, while the second study is based on existing product packs on the market. The results obtained in the consumer study will discover eventual general opinions concerning cheap and expensive packages. These results will then be compared to a selection of products from the markets’ existing offers. The purpose of this study is to clarify how well companies shape their packs based on consumers’ general perception. It is finally discussed how the different attributes can be used to legitimize a higher or lower price. 

Abstract [sv]

Konkurrensen mellan företag ökar och blir allt hårdare med ett ständigt växande antal aktörer på marknaden. Ett sätt att differentiera sig från konkurrenter är genom förpackningsdesign. För att varan i sin helhet ska ge ett pålitligt intryck måste förpackningens attribut vara enhetliga och genomgående. Spretar attributen inger detta förvirring och skapar brist i trovärdighet hos konsumenten. Förpackningen signalerar varans förväntade kvalitet och pris.

Denna uppsats omfattar två studier med syfte att kartlägga svenska konsumenters uppfattning av en produkts pris utifrån förpackningens utformning. Fokus i denna uppsats ligger på hushållsprodukter. Den första studien vänder sig direkt till konsumenten medan den andra undersöker befintliga förpackningar på marknaden. Resultatet av konsumenternas generella uppfattning, gällande billiga respektive dyrare förpackningar, jämförs med ett urval från marknadens befintliga utbud. Detta görs med syfte att klargöra för hur väl företagen arbetar efter konsumenternas generella uppfattning. Slutligen diskuteras hur de olika attributen kan användas i förpackningsdesign för att legitimera ett dyrare respektive billigare pris.
