Consumer marketing research is a form of applied sociology that concentrates on understanding the preferences, attitudes, and behaviors of consumers in a market-based economy, and it aims to understand the effects and comparative success of marketing campaigns.

Marketing executives rely on the results of timely and effective consumer research to make both day-to-day and long-term strategy decisions.
Consumer behavior is the study of how people make decisions about what they buy, want, need, or act in regards to a product, service, or company. It is critical to understand consumer behavior to know how potential customers will respond to a new product or service. It is difficult to develop true insights from quantitative data (typically missing the “why”), and by definition any research that is evaluative in nature is more about the findings, conclusions and recommendations than about consumer insights.
