Excerpt from Dynamics of Price Elasticity and the Product Life Cycle: An Empirical Study The sales and price variables are either in natural or in logarithmic dimension.

Typically all functional relationships in (l) are assumed to be by: 2. A brand life cycle model is developed which incorporates carryover effects and obsolescence and allows for time-varying price responses. An empirical study of 35 brands in seven different markets shows typical changes in price elasticity over the brand life cycle.

Important implications for strategic pricing and antitrust issues are by:   Competing specifications of price elasticity dynamics are examined to test the prevailing hypothesis that elasticities increase over the adoption life cycle or diffusion process.

Though not supporting the hypothesis, the empirical results suggest that certain factors, including the degree to which a product is a necessity and faces competitive Cited by: Full text of "Dynamics of price elasticity and the product life cycle: an empirical study" See other formats 7f WORKING PAPER ALFRED P.

() extend the work of Simon (). They study price elasticity dynamics over the product life cycle, and show consistent results with Simon (), which means that total sales price elasticity declines in absolute value but then increases over the product life cycle.

Extending the work of Parker (), which considers only firstpurchases, and Simon (), which considers brand-level sales, weempirically provide support for the hypothesis that total categorysales price elasticities first decease in absolute value but thenultimately increase if the product in question faces the decline phaseof the product life cycle (due to competitive substitutes, changes.

The Dynamics of Price Elasticity of Demand in the Presence of Reference Price Effects Article (PDF Available) in Journal of the Academy of Marketing Science 33(1) December with 6, Dynamics ̶H1. In the initial stage, e-book demand is becoming less price elastic over time. Eunkyoung Lee KAIST Business School 6 ※Reference Price Effect • The price consumers have in mind.

• Differences between the reference price and the shelf price affect the demand and price elasticity (Fibich et al.

Is an e-book a book. A Product’s Life Cycle (PLC) can be divided into several stages characterized by the revenue generated by the product. The life cycle concept may apply to a brand or to a category of product. Its duration may be as short as a few months for a fad item or a century or more for product categories such as the gasoline-powered automobile.

The authors derive an expression for the price elasticity of demand in the presence of reference price effects that includes a component resulting from the presence of gains and losses in consumer evaluations.

The effect of reference price is most noticeable immediately after a price change, before consumers have had time to adjust their reference price. Consequently, the sale of the product also starts declining. It is to be noted from the above discussion that throughout the product life cycle, changes occur in price-elasticity of demand and promotional elasticity.

There are also continuous changes in the production and distribution costs over the product life-cycle. Our findings indicate that (1) price is an important factor in the diffusion process, (2) organizations' reactions to price changes (i.e., price elasticity) are not constant, and (3) elasticity dynamics can serve as an innovation attribute that provides a continuous characterization of adoption behavior over the life cycle of an innovation.

PRICE ELASTICITY DYNAMICS OVER THE PRODUCT LIFE CYCLE Incorporating price Given an underlying diffusion process, we now discuss four ways to incorporate price - where price is separable function of the diffusion process, where price affects only ai9 where price affects bh and where price affects the long-run penetration level c, (for clarity.

there is still much to be done on the dynamics of price elasticity over time. Although there have been several related studies, they are primarily concerned with price elasticity over product life cycle or brand life cycle (Simon ; Parker & Neelamegham ).

This paper focuses on the dynamics of e-books’ price elasticity. A decision to price for market expansion can be reached at various stages in a product’s life cycle: before birth, at birth, in childhood, in adulthood, or in senescence.

Efficient brand life cycle management requires knowledge of the development of price elasticity over time. No convincing empirical or theoretical evidence on the changes in price elasticity over the brand life cycle is available to date.

Moreover, the time-invariant price response presupposed in this function must be considered as a very restrictive assumption. 7f workingpaper choolofmanagement dynamicsofpriceelasticity andtheproductlifecycle-anempiricalstudy* hermannsimon** wp november massachusetts instituteoftechnology 50memorialdrive cambridge,massachusettsThe following equation enables PED to be calculated.
