Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) on the Cautious Planner

Cautious Planners tend to be extremely future-focused. COVID-19 is likely to make them more cautious when thinking about their future, perhaps spending less money in the short-term and investing more in future savings to ensure a stable future. The Cautious Planner is likely to increase their frugal behaviour, continuing to seek low prices and save money in a time of economic uncertainty. They are also likely to stock-pile essential products and be swayed by discounted bulk offers.

Why segment consumers by type?

Grouping consumers solely by demographics when looking at their buying behaviour and purchase decision-making can give a skewed view of their daily habits and long-term lifestyle choices. Instead, Euromonitor International’s annual Consumer Types analysis looks beyond standard demographics and profiles distinct personality-driven consumer types at both the global and country level.

Changes in attitudes and habits can be tracked through our Consumer Types Series year-on-year, giving valuable insight into what consumers want and need, even distinguishing among those in the same demographic group.
