  1. 1. Indian Affluents 2010 Demographic, Psychographic & Consumption Lifestyle profiling of Urban Affluents in India
  2. 2. Highlights! • The ‘Indian Affluents’ study captures the real ‘haves’ in urban India (excluding the High Net Worth) – those with MHI of Rs.1 lakh+, own house, and own car costing Rs.8 lakhs+ • The study differentiates, sizes and profiles the ‘urban affluents’, excluding HNW, into 2 distinct types – ‘Climbers’ (The Upwardly Mobile) and ‘Arriveds’ (The Nouveau Rich) • Size estimates based on a large 57,000 household survey across the country while profiling based on a sample study of 1,000 affluents across the top 20 cities in India * MHI – Monthly Household Income, HNW – High Net Worth
  3. 3. Study Overview  Most recent and ‘representative’ survey-based estimates of the ‘affluent’ Indians Estimate based on a very large land survey of over 57,000 households spread across all the mainland states and union territories of the country. Survey conducted in Apr–May 2010 among 37,000 households in 101 cities and 20,000 households in 1,000+ villages  Most comprehensive profiling of the ‘urban’ affluent families – in their demographics, psychographics and consumption lifestyles A deeper profiling of how affluent urban Indian households live in their consumption lifestyle - including details about their location, economic status, household and financial assets ownerships, monthly and annual household expenditure on main spend heads, holiday and entertainment preferences, media usage and household consumption and brand preferences Demographic and socio-economic profiling is based on sampling of ‘all individuals’ living in the surveyed 1,000 affluent households. Psychographics and consumption lifestyle profiling is based on 1,000 individual sample (respondents answering questions on behalf of their respective households)
  4. 4. Study Methodology  A large-scale land survey was conducted to estimate the size and spread of ‘affluent households’ in India. The survey covered ‘towns’ and ‘villages’ of all population strata in all the mainland states and union territories in India (covering all the key, and 69 of the total 77 regions in India as classified by NSSO) – covering a total of over 57,000 households. Though the selection of towns and villages in this large scale land survey was ‘purposive’ (to cover all population strata towns and villages), the sampling within the towns was done on ‘2-stage random’ basis and in villages on ‘systematic random’ basis  In addition to the above survey, an additional purposive ‘booster sample’ survey was conducted among 1,000 affluent households (defined as household having MHI above Rs. 1 lakh, own house and a car costing above Rs.8 lakhs) living in the top 20 Indian cities spread across all the 4 regions in the country  The detailed profiling of the ‘affluent’ households in the study is based on the 1,000 urban household booster sample. On the other hand, their overall size estimation and geographical spread is derived from the 57,000 household sample national survey after making it representative of the entire Indian population (by applying appropriate household level ‘demographic representation weights’ derived from the authentic ‘Govt. of India’ base-level population statistics - NSSO/Census)
  5. 5. Juxt ‘Urban Affluent’ Segments Defined Climbers (The Upwardly Mobile) • Reported monthly household income between Rs. 1-2 lakhs* • Own a house • Own at least one car costing more than Rs. 8 lakhs • Sample Size - 725 Arriveds (The Nouveau Rich) • Reported monthly household income above Rs. 2 lakhs* • Own a house • Own at least one car costing more than Rs. 8 lakhs • Sample Size - 281 Richie Richs (The Real Rich with High Net Worth) • Not part of this study * Assumed to be noticeably under-reported in the survey than the actual incomes Note: Reporting of any segment level data is subject to collection of sufficient sample responses in the survey
  6. 6. Topline Findings
  7. 7. A world of ‘Climbers’ predominantly  There are around 0.86 million ‘claimed’ affluent families in India (with ‘claimed’ monthly family income over Rs.1 lakh, a Rs.8 lakh+ car and own house)  The total individuals living in such affluent families are approx. 3.8 million  Almost half of these affluent families in India live in the rural areas (while 1 in every 175 urban family is ‘affluent’, 1 in every 400 rural family also qualify to be called ‘affluent’)  Of the urban affluents, only 1 in 6 families qualify to be called the ‘Arriveds’ (the rest are the ‘Climber’ families)  The ‘claimed’ average family income of urban affluent households is around `1.81 lakhs per month (those of the ‘Arriveds’ households is almost `4.35 lakhs per month)
  8. 8. ‘Business Owners’ predominantly  2/3rd of all urban affluent family ‘chief wage earners’ are ‘business owners’ (while bulk of the ‘Climbers’ own business with less than 10 employees, bulk of the ‘Arriveds’ own business with more than 10 employees)  Arriveds show a marginally higher ‘married with children’ profile, having relatively more ‘Baby-sitter’ families than the Climbers (with eldest child below 12 years)  Arriveds have relatively more ‘professional’ stream qualifications (and relatively more ‘English’ educated members in the household) than than the Climbers  However, only 1 in 7 ‘Arrived’ chief wage earner is a senior level corporate executive
