Growth in the use of counterfeit products in the world is increasing rapidly. The main solution to counteracting counterfeit products is to prevent the use of counterfeit products by customers who deliberately or unknowingly purchase these products. The present research is also taking steps. Accordingly, in the present study, the factors affecting the behavior of the purchase of counterfeit products are identified.
The method of this research is a mixed method. In the first, a qualitative method was used to develop a conceptual model and then a quantitative method was used to test the model. The statistical sample of the qualitative research phase was comprised of 15 consumer consumers of four categories of counterfeit goods (sports shoes, sunglasses, colognes and spare parts for automobiles), and the sample in the quantitative phase was 1,600 consumers of counterfeit and original four commodity groups. Give To analyze the data in the qualitative phase, the analysis of the theme and ISM and in the quantitative phase, ANOVA and PLS were used.
The findings indicate the effective role of all four groups of predictive variables including individual characteristics, product features, cultural and social characteristics, and purchase conditions and scenarios on attitude, intent to purchase, and continued purchase of counterfeit products. Meanwhile, the role of individual attributes was more than other factors. The results also showed that perception of the counterfeit product moderates the effect of predictive variables on the attitude and intent to purchase counterfeit products in an inverse manner.
