Based on the results obtained in this study, brand awareness, perceived quality and brand loyalty
were found to significantly contribute to brand equity, among all the five brand equity dimensions. Brand
association was insignificant and does not direct effect on brand equity. Regarding the
interrelationships among the brand equity dimensions, the results show that the dimensions of
perceived quality, brand association , brand image and brand awareness are positively related to brand
loyalty. Consequently, perceived quality, brand image and brand awareness has both direct and indirect
effect on brand equity. The indirect path includes mediation through brand loyalty.
The brand image is an important dimension to be considered in consumer based brand equity. thus,
firms with experienced brands in the marketplace may aim actions at fostering the effects of the brand
image on brand equity.
