News: Report on public attitudes, perceptions and behaviour relating to remanufactured, repaired and reused products
Consumer perceptions of remanufactured and reused products are often viewed as a barrier to increased uptake of these goods.

While there have been a number of studies undertaken in this area it was apparent that a critical overview of research on this subject was much needed. Following our in-house work on Secondary Markets last year, we commissioned a study to review the literature on public perceptions of remanufactured, repaired and reused products. The study, undertaken by Dr. Matt Watson at The University of Sheffield, comprised of a desk-based study to evaluate and identify the gaps in evidence. This now provides a basis for conducting future work in this area. Commenting on the study Dr. Watson says “It is clear that there are vast holes in existing knowledge, especially when it comes to remanufactured and reused consumer goods in the mainstream and formal market. The report, entitled “A review of literature and research on public attitudes, perceptions and behaviour relating to remanufactured, repaired and reused products” may be downloaded from this page.
