Consumer Insight - September 2014

Income and Spending

income and spending consumer insight

 

WHAT

Mintel notes that consumer spending constitutes approximately 70 percent of GDP in the U.S., so it’s important for marketers to be aware of consumers’ financial situations and willingness to spend.

HOW

In the last couple of years, wages have been recovering to pre-recession levels, and the ability to return to building homes has helped the economy.

WHERE

Though consumers feel more confident spending what they make, priority lies in paying off bills and paying down student loans and credit card debt. People also are concerned about using their money to save for rainy days and retirement.

 
 

What Brands Can Do!

BRANDPACKAGING believes in brands helping consumers make meaningful purchases. We want your brand to sell at shelf, and we want consumers to feel good about what they buy, no matter what their income level or financial situation is. Make each transaction an experience for your customers.

Packaging Matters™ — Packaging Satisfaction: Why it’s on the Rise, and How to Continue the Momentum

Packaging Matters™ is MWV’s annual study of the role of packaging in product satisfaction. We study packaging because it matters to brand owners, retailers and consumers around the world. This year’s research focuses on Brazil, China, France, Germany and the U.S. In the third year of the study, we will share global trends associated with packaging satisfaction, product safety, and the effect packaging has on consumers when shopping in-store and online.
