eye-tracking technology, customer perceived value, brand overlap, brand identity, apparel brand


Competition in the apparel market has developed from preliminary price competition, quality competition, and scale competition to the current state of brand competition. The phenomenon of brand overlap cannot be avoided by apparel enterprises during the process of building and manufacturing their brands. This paper has selected nine identification elements of three dimensions, which we used to construct an apparel brand overlap identification model. This model is based on the theories of customer perceived value and brand identity and was constructed by taking consumer perspectives as the starting point. Two apparel brands from the representative international E Company have been selected as our empirical research objects. An apparel brand overlap identification model has been constructed based on questionnaire analysis and a cognitive experiment involving eye-tracking technology. In addition, the overlap elements among apparel brands, as well as the cognitive situation of consumers with regard to brand overlap, have been analyzed.
