본 연구의 목적은 중국 소비자의 휴대폰 선택 시 고려하는 주요 평가영역에 대한 세부 특성요인의 만족도가 해당 평가영역 만족도에 어떠한 영향을 미치며, 각 평가영역에 대한 만족도가 고객의 재구매의도와 타인추천의도에 어떠한 영향을 미치는가를 사용 휴대폰 유형에 따른 집단별로 분석하는데 있다. 설문조사 시 평가요인으로 가격, 디자인, 품질, 편리성, 기능 그리고 개인적 요인을 설정하였으며, 재구매의도와 타인추천의도로 구분 실시하였다. 연구결과, 가격을 제외한 모든 특성요인이 해당 평가영역의 만족에 유의한 것으로 나타났으며 유의한 경로가 집단별로 차이가 존재함을 알 수 있었다. 또한 모든 집단에서 평가영역에 대한 만족이 재구매의도와 타인추천의도에 유의한 것으로 평가되었다. 연구 결과 우리 기업의 경우 디자인, 기능, 개인적 요인에 관한 특성요인은 평가영역 만족에 유의한 영향을 미치나 해당 특성요인의 만족도는 상대적으로 낮은 것으로 나타난다. 따라서 이들 특성요인에 대한 만족도를 높일 수 있는 품질 개선방안을 강구하여야 할 것으로 사료된다.
