About this Report

Due to the country’s recent sluggish economic performance, Australian consumers have been a bit wary when assessing their own personal financial futures. Regardless, it appears most feel relatively optimistic, particularly since the recent change of government. Consumer spending has grown in recent years but not significantly as many Australians have decided to save rather than spend. On the other hand, high house prices have resulted in many consumers taking on more debt.

Consumer Lifestyle Reports provide current and detailed snapshots of the unique behaviours, attitudes and spending patterns of consumers in Australia.

In addition to covering important core topics like household disposable income, consumer expenditure, savings and credit and housing and home ownership, this report also contains hard-to-find statistics on more specific consumer-related topics like eating and drinking habits, shopping habits, preferred types of stores and retail venues, clothing and fashion trends and descriptions of how consumers spend their leisure and recreation time.

A consumer segmentation section in the report breaks down the Australia’s consumers by specific age groups, ranging from babies and infants to pensioners; highlighting the factors that influence purchasing decisions and the products in greatest demand for each segment.
