Now in its third year, the study is broader in scope and more nuanced in its findings. With Brazil added in 2013, this years study covers four continents and defines the collective mindset based on data from five of the worlds top 10 largest economies. The 2013 study has also been expanded to further explore emerging issues related to the supply chain and human health, both of which yield interesting findings relative to Brazil. We hope you find this report informative and thought provoking.</p><p>UL is a premier global independent safety science company with more than 118 years of history. Building on our product safety heritage, we created The Product Mindset to help businesses better understand the growing concerns and priorities of your diverse constituents and peers. The studys insights can provide a platform for you to consider how you think, plan and deliver in todays complex product ecosystem.</p><p>THE PRODUCT MINDSET 2013</p><p>THE PRODUCT MINDSET 2013 - BRAZIL COUNTRY REPORT | 2</p></li><li><p>THE BRAZIL REPORT</p><p>This report focuses specifically on the context, findings and rankings that define the mindset in Brazil, highlighting the areas where Brazilian manufacturers or consumers differ significantly from their peers in China, Germany, India and </p><p>the U.S. This report should be viewed as complementary to The Product Mindset 2013 full report, which contains the complete set of key global findings.</p><p>AUDIENCES</p><p>Director-level executives specializing in management, research and development, </p><p>marketing and sales, quality control, sustainability, product management or design</p><p>CONSUMERS</p><p>A representative mix of age, gender, education and income</p><p>MANUFACTURERS</p><p>306 - BRAZIL 302 - BRAZIL</p><p>1,521 - GLOBAL 1,528 - GLOBAL</p><p>TABLE OF CONTENTS</p><p>CONTEXT 4 </p><p>FINDINGS 7 </p><p>RANKINGS 16 </p><p>MORE PRODUCT MINDSET 19</p><p>ACKNOWLEDGMENTS &amp; METHODOLOGY 20</p><p>THE PRODUCT MINDSET 2013 - BRAZIL COUNTRY REPORT | 3</p></li><li><p>BRAZIL: CONTEXT</p><p>Despite Brazils advancement and worldwide recognition, the mood in the country appears to reflect a more restrained optimism. Brazils economic growth outpaced the global average by more than three times during the early years of the economic crisis (2008-2010) but has slowed the past two years.1 Brazil is now the seventh-largest economy in the world2 and will celebrate the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Olympic Games, making it the powerful focus of the global stage. </p><p>Today, Brazilian manufacturers exhibit a more realistic outlook. They are significantly less global in their sourcing than manufacturers are in developed economies, but their industries are fast becoming </p><p>more complex. A point of difference is that manufacturers in Brazil are much more open than their global counterparts in expressing a need for across-the-board business improvements. </p><p>Consumers are positive about the improving product quality in Brazil although less so than consumers in other emerging economies. Additionally, the vast majority of Brazilian consumers desire more stringent governmental regulation of manufacturers. This may be linked to the serious concerns these consumers express about the environment and to their overall growing sophistication.</p><p>THE PRODUCT MINDSET 2013 - BRAZIL COUNTRY REPORT | 4</p></li><li><p>CONTEXT</p><p>BRAZIL: GLOBALIZATIONBrazil is less globalized than developed nations today, particularly relative to sourcing, which translates into less complexity; however, there are signs that Brazil is rapidly becoming more global and complex</p><p>Significantly fewer Brazilian manufacturers operate globally, but the vast majority see the benefit of it</p><p>Distribution/Sales is Brazilian manufacturers most global function today, which is on par with the global average (61%) globally, sourcing is the most common multinational function (70% of manufacturers), and here Brazil lags</p><p>SAY: They operate multinationally, significantly below the current global level (78%)</p><p>AGREE: Global sourcing is a means to improve product quality, which is significantlyabove the global average (78%)</p><p>64% 89%</p><p>Percentage of manufacturers that operate multinationally in the following areas:</p><p>62% | DISTRIBUTION/SALES</p><p>52% | SOURCING</p><p>42% | MARKETING/PROMOTION</p><p>37% | MANUFACTURING</p><p>Significantly more Brazilian manufacturers than the global average (48%) state they will increase global sourcing over the next five years...</p><p>...and they are 56% more likely than global manufacturers to source from new countries</p><p>57% 39%THE PRODUCT MINDSET 2013 - BRAZIL COUNTRY REPORT | 5</p></li><li><p>BRAZIL: MOODBrazilian consumers feel better about product quality but still want to see more regulation of manufacturers</p><p>CONTEXT</p><p>Brazilian consumers believe product quality is better than it was five years ago...</p><p>EMERGING</p><p>DEVELOPED 50%</p><p>61% </p><p>79% </p><p>59%</p><p>88% </p><p>Similar to manufacturers around the world, those in Brazil already feel stringently regulated...</p><p>88% 83% 86% 86% </p><p>87% </p><p>53%</p><p>DEVELOPED EMERGING</p><p>63% 79% 81% 92%</p><p>...but the vast majority of them desire more stringent governmental regulation</p><p>Cost Ethical SourcingEnv.

This creates gaps with Brazilian manufacturers who emphasize Improvement in these areas over Health Impact and Environmentally Friendly Products, which are much more important to consumers.</p><p>THE PRODUCT MINDSET 2013 - BRAZIL COUNTRY REPORT | 18</p></li><li><p>MORE PRODUCT MINDSETThis year, we have made the results of The Product Mindset more interactive.
