About this Report

The economic downturn in 2008 and 2009 had a negative impact on the consumption patterns of Costa Rican consumers. Many cutbacks were made on various categories including food and drinks, leisure and recreation, and clothing and footwear. Costa Ricans focused on the essentials and had to forego luxury and premium products. The country faces various challenges for the future which will impact markets, e.g. low fertility rates, an ageing population, and rising obesity and related health problems.

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

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 Costa Rica’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.
