Among them Brand name, Flavour, Volume, Price and Sugar levels have 34 %, 20 %, 20 %, 21 % and 4 % aggregated importance respectively. Well-known brand names have higher consumer preference and consumers are more likely to consumer mango nectar. Also, consumers prefer nectar at the affordable middle level price range. Factor analysis was conducted to identify the major factors that drives the market and a cluster analysis was conducted to divide the sample population in to four segments.
