Euromonitor Segments Consumer Types and Investigates Their Potential in New White Paper

Posted: March 4, 2013

Market research company Euromonitor International released a white paper identifying four consumer types to optimize marketing strategy. Companies often identify market segments using demographics alone. Euromonitor's consumer types move beyond standard demographics, focusing on personality and traits such as media consumption, buying behaviors, individual aspirations and more. This type of segmentation empowers companies to think more creatively about potential customers and create products and campaigns tailored to consumers' interests and attitudes.

"These four consumer types can revolutionize the way companies identify target audiences and make marketing strategies more effective," said survey manager Eileen Bevis. "The types were based on personal motivations, habit, and opinions collected from 16,000 online respondents to our annual survey of established and emerging consumer markets, providing a robust foundation for segmenting."

Euromonitor's white paper discusses basic characteristics of the four consumer types and provides an in-depth discussion of the “Undaunted Striver,” an attractive consumer type for companies looking to expand into emerging markets. Understanding these consumer types allows readers to rethink their marketing strategy, putting less emphasis on demographics and focusing more on consumers' personal attitudes and behaviors.
