Singh & Sinha (2013) predicts that the consumers have two forms of buying decision process one is compound, it is nothing but extremely concerned.

The chapter, further, deals with the buying decision process of the customers, Consumer Behaviors model and the chapter review.
2.1 Buying Decision Process
The process through which a customer goes while purchasing a product is the buying decision process. This process answers the questions like what is the need of the customer or what the customer actually want? It further helps to understand the information related to evaluation of choices, pre- and post-purchasing evaluation etc. The buying process starts with the wish of or need of buying a product which further distinguish the buyer’s desire for a particular product. It further explains the internal and the external stimulus of the buyer. Post-purchase evaluation consists of the consumer’s evaluation of decision for buying a particular product. At this stage, consumer’s evaluation play an important role because it further helps to understand the loyalty factor towards the product and the manufacturing unit or the company from where the products has been purchased.
2.2 Consumer Behaviors model
Buyer’s behavior plays a vital role in the field of marketing. There are two types of buyer –
- Industrial or organization buyer
- Individual buyer
Industrial or individual buyer first took the consideration of organizational budget or cost. Thus, the decision process takes place in joint; the individual buying decision is not that much considered. In such cases, conflicts may occur which becomes hard to avoid. Therefore, to understand organizational buying behavior, the focus is on the buyers and their expectations from the product. It, somewhere, more complex and possess distinct features as compared to the individual buyer. Trinh (2014) provides that a varieties of models are there to describe consumer behavior. One of those is ‘The Howard Sheth Model’ of buying behavior which further tends to throw light on the rational brand behavior that consumers show when they possess incomplete information and limited abilities (Trinh, 2014). This model has put forth the factors that influence consumers.
