  5. 5. 5Copyright © 2013 The Nielsen Company THE IMPACT OF CULTURE ON CONSUMER BEHAVIOR Appreciate the similarities, embrace the differences. With seven billion people living in the world, new findings from a Nielsen global survey revealed that when it comes to core fundamental lifestyle values centered on family, education or religious aspirations, we are more alike than we are different. However, what drives our shopping preferences can vary considerably depending on where we live. A one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t work; understanding the habits and diverse needs of consumers around the world is critical for success in today’s shrinking world. The Nielsen Global Survey of Consumer Shopping Behavior included more than 29,000 online respondents in 58 countries. The findings shine a light on how consumers shop and what drives category purchasing. They revealed, for example, that more respondents in Asia-Pacific shopped impulsively and were attracted to designer brands than in any other region. Latin Americans were intensely brand-loyal and well-informed shoppers. North American and European shoppers were largely driven by price and Middle East/Africa respondents were environmentally savvy and influenced by professionals. Economic realities and the growing disposable wealth of consumers in growth markets were clear factors in the results, which surveyed respondents with Internet access. In growth markets in particular, respondents were voracious consumers, often exceeding the global average when it came to early adoption, affinity for aspirational brands, researching and deal sensitivity. Conversely, respondents in the developed regions of the world were often most skeptical, driven by price and least likely to be influenced by others. ABOUT THE GLOBAL SURVEY METHODOLOGY The findings in this survey are based on respondents with online access across 58 countries. While an online survey methodology allows for tremendous scale and global reach, it provides a perspective only on the habits of existing Internet users, not total populations. In developing markets where online penetration has not reached majority potential, audiences may be younger and more affluent than the general population of that country. Additionally, survey responses about purchasing habits are based on claimed behavior, rather than actual metered data.
  6. 6. 6 NEW WEALTH, NEW WORLD SECTION I CORE VALUES ALIGNED, WOMEN’S ROLES DIFFERED Spending quality time with families was most important among 80 percent of all respondents. More than three-quarters also agreed that family planning was essential (77%), women should have influence regarding important issues in the household (76%) and attaining a higher education was critical (78%). There was less global alignment, however, on the notion that a woman’s most important role was a housewife and/or mother, with respondents in Middle East/Africa (62%) and Asia-Pacific (53%) exceeding the global average of 43 percent. Fewer than one-third of North Americans (30%) and Europeans (31%) felt the same. Globally, more men (46%) than women (39%) believed the most important role for women is housewife or mother, but the majority of both genders agreed that women should have influence in matters pertaining to the household (women 82% vs. men 71%). Religion was an important guiding source for decision making among 71 percent of Middle East/Africa respondents, which far exceeded the global average of 32 percent.

  8. 8. 8 NEW WEALTH, NEW WORLD THE CHANGING WAVE OF WEALTH With about one-third of global respondents often buying things they did not need and trying products earlier than others, impulsive spenders and early adopters were in the minority in all regions. But online respondents in Asia-Pacific and Middle-East/Africa exceeded the global average for both impulsive spending (AP 40% / MEA 39%) and early adoption (AP 45% / MEA 43%). Countries at the top of the list included growth markets, such as China, India, and Indonesia, where discretionary income is rising and consumption is expanding beyond the basics. Similarly, when it came to brand image, six out of 10 online respondents in Asia-Pacific were willing to pay extra for designer products (61%), exceeding the global average by 17 percentage points. The affinity for buying famous brands was also highest among online respondents in Asia-Pacific (55%) and Middle East/Africa (56%) markets, exceeding the global average of 47 percent.

  10. 10. 10 NEW WEALTH, NEW WORLD THE ALLURE OF A GOOD PROMOTION Economic realities prevailed around the world, and overall, there was global alignment on attitudes about the need for deals and promotions. Price was the most important concern among 65 percent of global respondents. Six out of 10 were aware of promotions and discounts (59%) and believed products with free gifts were good incentives (58%). With the exception of Greece, developing countries (in a balanced representation of the regions) comprised the list of countries that responded most strongly in favor of receiving free gifts. While more than half of respondents in Latin America (68%), Asia-Pacific (57%), and Middle East/Africa (51%) were especially interested to buy products promoted in the store, only 31 percent of North Americans and 43 percent of Europeans felt the same way.

  12. 12. 12 NEW WEALTH, NEW WORLD KNOWLEDGE IS POWER The expression “know before you go” resonated strongly around the world, with more than half of global respondents collecting information, sampling, and asking for advice before shopping. Latin American respondents showed the most affinity to shop around, have preferred brands in mind before shopping, and sample first before making a purchase. North American respondents put the least trust in products recommended by professionals (35%) or other’s influence (25%). Conversely, Middle East/Africa and Latin American respondents relied most on the advice of professionals.

When it comes to environmental-friendly actions, such as buying eco-responsible products regardless of price or reducing our carbon footprint to save energy, North Americans were the least eco-minded compared with the rest of the world. Conversely, respondents in Asia- Pacific, Latin America and Middle East/Africa were the most receptive to making an ecological difference.

While the availability to buy environmentally-friendly products in the developing regions of the world may be inhibitors to convert attitudes into action, the survey results suggest a clear desire and willingness to do the right thing. Manufacturers and retailers who get the price and distribution equation right in these developing markets will have an eager audience at-the-ready. The findings also suggest that there is more work to be done on the education front to better inform consumers about the benefits of conservation.

  16. 16. 16 NEW WEALTH, NEW WORLD SECTION II CUTTING THROUGH THE CLUTTER IN A WORLD OF CHOICE Fragmentation is everywhere, and we are bombarded with choice. From thousands of fast-moving consumer goods to dozens of retail channels to the expanding and evolving list of traditional and non-traditional sources for information, cutting through the clutter is where we find and fulfill unmet needs. Nielsen reviewed seven purchasing criteria: packaging design, price, function, advertisement, brand, quality and place of production to uncover which of these product attributes resonated most strongly with consumers when making a purchase decision. The survey also asked which major sources respondents used when searching for product- related information. Nielsen evaluated health and beauty, food and beverage, mobile/personal electronics and non-FMCG categories. The study also gauged whether respondents were loyal to 17 various food, beverage and health/beauty categories to uncover areas of opportunity. The next pages provide a roadmap by industry to help you better reach consumers by offering the product attributes that drive purchase behavior and by communicating in the places where they are actively searching for product information. BRAND IS KING BRAND IS A TOP PRIORITY WHEN INDIANS SHOP FOR COSMETICS, SKIN/ PERSONAL CARE, ELECTRONICS, MOBILE PHONES AND CARS DID YOU KNOW?
  17. 17. 17Copyright © 2013 The Nielsen Company HEALTH AND BEAUTY DESIRES AND DIFFERENCES For health, beauty and personal care products, price, quality and function were the most important purchase criteria. But the emphasis placed on these attributes showed distinct differences by region, yet strong consistency within region. For Asia-Pacific respondents, function was selected most as the main criteria when buying cosmetics/skin care, personal care, health care/ medicine categories, followed by quality and price. In North America and Europe, price was paramount. Latin American respondents put the strongest emphasis on quality. In Middle East/Africa, brand was a key consideration for cosmetics and skin care, price was important for personal care purchasing intentions and quality was a main factor for health care/medicine purchase decisions. On the loyalty front, consumers were devoted to their favorite shampoo brand, with half of global respondents seldom switching to another brand. Sixty-one percent of Latin Americans and 57 percent of North Americans were faithful to their deodorant brands, which exceeded the global average by 20 percentage points. Roughly one-quarter of global respondents were committed to their favorite cosmetic (25%) and facial cleanser (23%) brands. Overall, TV reigned supreme as an influential source to obtain product- related information for health and beauty categories. The Internet and in- store sources were also important. For medical and health care advice, friends and family were strong guiding sources for roughly one-fifth of respondents around the world.

  20. 20. 20 NEW WEALTH, NEW WORLD FOOD AND BEVERAGES SERVED UP TASTE AND QUALITY Not surprisingly, taste was an influential purchasing criteria when making food and beverage purchases. While quality and price were also key factors when making a purchase decision across all regions, quality took precedence over price among a greater percentage of respondents in Latin America, Asia-Pacific and Middle East/Africa markets, and price was the priority for more North Americans and Europeans. In-store promotion tactics resonated strongly in Europe and North America. TV was the most often cited go-to-vehicle for product information in Latin America, Asia-Pacific and Middle East/Africa. Friends and family were persuasive for about one-fifth of global respondents. On the loyalty front, the findings revealed that when it came to coffee, consumers were committed to their favored brand. Half of respondents in Latin America (52%) and Europe (50%) reported loyalty to their preferred brand of coffee. A FEELING OF ALLEGIANCE ALL OVER THE WORLD, WE LOVE OUR FAVORITE BRAND OF COFFEE, MILK, YOGURT AND DRINK DID YOU KNOW?
  21. 21. 21Copyright © 2013 The Nielsen Company More than one-third of global respondents (36%) were loyal to milk/soy milk brands, with Latin Americans (43%) and North Americans (38%) most dedicated. Forty percent of Latin Americans were also devoted to their preferred yogurt brand (exceeding the global average by 17 percentage points), and 44 percent of Middle East/Africa respondents were loyal to their favored drink brand. North Americans showed the strongest devotion to condiments (27%) and soups (25%), compared with the other regions. More than one-third of respondents in Latin America (39%) and Asia- Pacific (37%) found TV to be the most influential source to obtain food and beverage information, compared with 30 percent in Middle East/ Africa, 28 percent in North America and 22 percent in Europe. In-store tactics resonated strongly among 37 percent of Europeans and Latin Americans and 30 percent of North Americans. Roughly one-fifth of respondents relied on family and friends for advice about buying food and beverages.

In Middle East/Africa, price and brand were equally influential among one-third (32%) of respondents. Asia-Pacific respondents bucked the trend as 38 percent of respondents selected function as the most important purchasing criteria, followed by price (35%) and then brand (29%). For personal electronics, price was selected most as the leading purchase factor in all regions except Asia-Pacific, where function took priority. Brand was a significant purchase criterion among roughly one- quarter of respondents globally.
