Global Consumer Types: Understanding the Conservative Homebody

Grouping consumers solely by demographics while 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’s eight global consumer types look beyond standard demographics and profile distinct personality-driven consumer types. Changes in attitudes and habits can be tracked through our Consumer Types Series year-on-year, giving valuable insight on what consumers want and need, even distinguishing among those in the same demographic group.

The Conservative Homebody is driven by price, value for money and is likely to stick to their day-to-day purchases. Though they do not spend a lot of money, Conservative Homebodies enjoy browsing new products and shopping. Conservative Homebodies occasionally enjoy trying new things. New-to-market products or private label companies could potentially thrive with this consumer type, as long as they are competitively priced and provide the same features as the Conservative Homebody’s regular purchases.

Understanding the shopping habits and preferences of global consumer types allows companies, brands and retailers to target their core customers better. From initial shopping motivations to influences, channels used and the final purchase, these steps in the path to purchase provide valuable information on how to successfully target key audiences.

For additional insights on each of our eight consumer types and how to influence their purchase decisions, download Euromonitor International’s “2018 Survey Results: Using the Consumer Types to Understand the Path to Purchase” white paper.
