Abstract

This study is conducted to explore the factors influencing purchase behaviour and to explain the magnitude of such factors on buying behaviour in Tanzania. Based on a systematic review of literature, a research framework was developed from Theory of Planned Behaviour (TPB). The casual model was empirically tested by using partial least-square structural equation modelling (PLS-SEM). The survey is comprised of 491 usable samples, collected from Generation Y consumers as the main music users in Tanzania. Result suggest that the model is significant and adequate. All antecedents of intention appears to be significant except for idolatry. Self-regulatory efficacy and subjective norm are contributing factors to intention construct. Intention, along with self-regulatory efficacy is found to have significant impact on consumer buying behaviour. Government Regulation is found to have non- significant moderating impacts on the relationship between intention and consumer buying behaviour. In addition to theoretical implication, a number of managerial implications are observed. Marketers need to enhance consumers buying behaviour in various stakeholders , reduce music piracy through motivation on self-regulatory efficacy and subjective norm to Generation Y. Overall, the study is expected to  confer value to music industry through discourage music piracy  by researchers and marketers.
