2015 Report on Affluent Consumers and Luxury Goods in the US
ABOUT THIS REPORT
This report focuses on highly Affluent consumers, who are a different consumer segment from the “Mass Affluent” or those defined as just “Affluent“. They are Americans who have an annual household income of at least $150,000 USD. They represent the top 10% of the population in terms of income, but command 25% share of total income in the US. These highlight the spending capacity and importance of the segment for luxury brands.
To better understand this segment, we look into the purchasing behaviour, motivations, media channels, and brand preferences of these highly affluent consumers in the context of premium and luxury products and services. We also shed light on the most effective influencers and motivators behind purchases in order to better target the segment and attract new customers or increase spending from current customers.
