About this Report

Consumer confidence has climbed, as the country’s strong economic growth – 7.8% in the first quarter of 2013 – is expected to result in more investments generating jobs and higher salaries. The country’s middle- and high-income classes are enjoying higher purchasing power and can afford to spend on higher-end products including food, housing, dining and recreation. Their spending behaviour is largely shaped by the latest lifestyle and health trends from abroad.

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

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 Philippines’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.
