With a population of 51 million that accounted for more than half of the growth of the American population in the past decade, Latinos continue to expand their influence in the American consumer market. Packaged Facts The Latino Household Products Shopper shows how Latinos have an especially significant impact on the market for household products. Latino households spend more than any other population segment on laundry and household cleaning supplies. In the past decade their spending on these products grew at a rate that was nearly three times faster than that of other households. On average, Latino households are 40% larger than other households, and they are much more likely to use high volumes of a broad range of household products.
Experian Simmons National Consumer Study (NCS) data analyzed in The Latino Household Products Shopper demonstrate that Latino shoppers are a prime audience for marketers of household products. For example, they are less likely to select store brands and more likely to buy national brands for most categories of household products. Yet, Latino shoppers are highly discriminating in their purchasing decisions. The data also reveal that some national brands resonate exceptionally well while others underperform in Latino households.
The report opens with a presentation of topline findings, including an overview of which national household products brands perform best in Latino households. The next chapter analyzes current spending by Latino households on household products and projects total spending by Latinos on household products through 2016. The report continues with individual chapters on usage in Latino households of floor cleaning products, general household cleaning products, kitchen and bathroom cleaning products, laundry and dishwashing products, kitchen products and paper products. Each chapter analyzes the volume and type of products used by Latino households and assesses the comparative success of major national brands among Latino shoppers.
The Latino Household Products Shopper analyzes the usage within Latino households of 32 household products tracked by Experian Simmons NCS. These include floor cleaning products (disposable wipes, rug cleaners/shampoos, carpet deodorizers/fresheners and floor wax or polish); general household cleaning products (household cleaners, window/glass cleaners and air freshener sprays/room deodorants as well as light bulbs); kitchen and bathroom cleaning products (abrasive cleaners, scouring pads/sponges, drain cleaners, oven cleaners, metal polishers/cleaners and toilet cleaners); laundry and dishwashing products (boosters/pre-soaks/pre-cleaners, laundry soaps/detergents, fabric softeners, bleach, spray starch, automatic dishwasher detergent and dishwashing liquid); kitchen products (aluminum foil, plastic wrap, plastic freezer/sandwich bags, disposable food containers and plastic garbage bags/trash liners); and paper products (picnic products—including disposable cups and plates and charcoal—paper napkins, paper towels, facial tissues and toilet paper).
