The study of people's awareness of the existing topic is an important stage, consequently, in the part of quantitative research, a research selected for the public is presented, where it is possible to evaluate the results by percentage. According to the research, the majority of consumers have a rather low level of knowledge about the current issue, despite the fact that it should be in everyone's interest to know more about the possibilities and specifics of the market.
