Are Your Consumers Struggling, Adapting, or Thriving?

Inflation Consumer Segments

Many consumers have been hard hit by inflation, not just financially but emotionally as well. Close to three-fourths say their income is not keeping pace and approximately half feel they are worse off financially compared to one year ago. The stress and feeling of being overwhelmed are very real for many consumers.

But consumers are also proving to be resilient and resourceful as they adapt to stretch their budgets and adjust their priorities. While the impact of inflation is showing up in changing habits and shopping behaviors across a wide range of products, the challenge of helping consumers cope with inflation also provides a renewed imperative for brands to better connect with their existing customers and opportunity to win over new ones.
