Consumer Lifestyles in Belarus

Consumer Lifestyle

About This Report

Mar 2017

Consumers have had to endure an economic crisis which has led to declining incomes. In response, consumers have altered their spending habits and tightened their belts, continually looking for the lowest prices and in many instances delaying purchases, particularly of big-ticket items. New taxes on products bought abroad have affected the popular pastime of cross-border shopping. Online shopping is growing with domestic and Chinese retailers the most popular sites.
