Survey of the image of German brands in India – Excellent reputation, unexploited potential

Half of the urban consumers in India know a multitude of German brands and show a strong preference for them. The appeal of foreign brands, particularly those with German origin, is strongest for consumers from the upper middle class and higher income segments (with gross monthly income above Rs. 42,000), with 71% and 63% respectively saying they prefer German brands. More interestingly, half of the surveyed Indian middle class consumers (with gross monthly income of Rs. 18,000-42,000) like German brands, pointing to a huge potential for German products and services among the rising urban affluent in India – an often unexploited potential by German companies.

In total, 1,000 Indian consumers from Mumbai, New Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai and Pune have been interviewed. The India results are part of globeone’s comprehensive BRIC Branding Survey with 4,000 consumers-interviews in the 20 most important cities in China, India, Brazil and Russia.
