  • Indicus Analytics, An Economics Research Firm http://indicus.net/Newsletter/Consumer_Market.aspx Consumer Markets February 2009 From around India Biyani slows expansion plans Pantaloon Retail, which houses the Future Group's main formats such as Big Bazaar, Pantaloons, Food Bazaar and Central, had plans for a total space of 14.69 million sq ft by financial year 2009 and 19.25 million by FY10, according to analysts tracking the company. Now, Pantaloon Retail is expected to end its ongoing financial year, which ends on June 30, with a total space of 12 million square feet. Retail loan rates may dip to 3-yr low on cooling inflation This is expected to spur demand in housing and other rate-sensitive sectors such as automobiles. It would also help provide some support to declining demand as it could increase consumption in general. India auto sales slide 7.4 per cent in January India's auto sector skidded into deeper trouble in January, with domestic vehicle sales falling 7.4 per cent from a year ago to 768,622 units as tight credit and slowing growth dampened demand, an industry body said Monday. LG plans to double handsets mkt share LG lords over 27 per cent of the Rs 32,000-crore per annum Indian consumer electronics market. Starting from scratch about 12 years ago, it now enjoys almost universal brand recall in the country.

Its price tag is expected to be in the range of Rs 2.5-3 lakh, company officials said. Hyundai launches new Verna in 4 variants The new Verna range includes two petrol variants - 1.6 VTVT & 1.6 SX VTVT - and two diesel variants - 1.5 CRDi VGT & 1.5 SX CRDi VGT. IDFC Mutual Fund launches India GDP Growth Fund The scheme aims to capture the growth in India's Gross Domestic Product (GDP). The scheme would endeavour to represent the growth in GDP by capturing the growth in the constituents of the GDP. Beam Global launches premium single malt whisky Ardmore Ardmore will be available at general liquor shops in Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore and Chennai to begin with and will be priced between Rs 2,800 and Rs 3,500, the company said in a statement. Household structures in India Nuclear, joint or extended families? Which segment dominates and what are the trends?
  • Indicus Analytics, An Economics Research Firm http://indicus.net/Newsletter/Consumer_Market.aspx The bulk of Indian households in both rural and urban areas are nuclear. Extended families (where parents stay with a married child) are the next in importance – fastest growing segment. Large joint families are an insignificant percentage. The trends indicate rising share of extended families, which are likely to have far reaching implications on consumer behaviour.

Jobs: Map shows states hit hardest; forecasts for rebound Every U.S. state and 95% of the nation's metropolitan areas will end 2009 with fewer jobs than they started with, while only two sectors — education and health services, and government — will add workers. Consumer buying makes up 70 percent of economy The rate has wavered. In 1929, the year the Great Depression began, consumer spending was nearly 75 percent of the nation's economy, a share that grew to 83 percent in 1932 as business spending shrank Consumers Still Buying Green Through Economic Changes Most consumers have not cut back their spending on green products, according to a new survey.
