Brand awareness is recognized to be an important determinant in shaping the success of durables, yet it is very difficult to be quantified. This is exactly the main goal of this paper: propose a suitable model where brand awareness of two competing firms is modeled and, eventually, estimated. To this aim, we build a random utility model for a duopoly where each competitor is characterized by different pricing strategies and brand awareness. As a result, different levels of market shares will emerge at the equilibrium. As a case study, we calibrate the model with real data from the smartphone industry obtaining an estimate of the value of the brand awareness of two leading brands.
