In the age of big data, this study aims to explore what design attributes of food gift box packaging attract Chinese customers.
To measure the preferences of Chinese travelers and the effects of packaging design attributes on their purchase decisions, this study used structural equation modeling methods to analyze 1,200 copies of empirical data collected from participants who visited at a travel fair head in Yunnan, China. Further survey samples were gathered at the duty-free shops in Taiwan's Taoyuan Airport.
This study makes five significant findings. Firstly, consumers from the Chinese mainland pay the most attention to the image, style, color, and texture of the packaging, in that order. Image and style, in particular, positively influence consumers' preference for products. Secondly, Taiwanese consumers focus on the image, color, texture, and style of the packaging, in that order. Image and color are the most significant attributes in convincing them to buy. Thirdly, male consumers among the Chinese pay particular attention to image, while females attach more importance to character and color. Fourthly, when mainland consumers buy food gifts for their own use, they emphasize color, but when they buy gifts for others, they emphasize texture. Both choices vary widely. Fifthly, the nature of image drives consumers to buy. Additionally, Taiwanese consumers pay more attention to color than mainland users while mainland consumers care more about style.
These findings provide key points for packaging design that targets Chinese consumers, encouraging them to choose Taiwanese food gifts. The findings will also serve as valuable references materials for product designers working on future commercial designs.
