About this Report

In the middle of a slowing economy, already-frugal consumers in India continue to be cautious about spending. In particular, members of the burgeoning middle class have put many of their aspirations on hold. Regardless, there is no escaping the fact that average annual disposable income increased by more than 29% (in real terms) between 2007 and 2012 while consumer spending increased by more than 25%, fuelling demand for a wide range of products and services.

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

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 India’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.
