Female buying power in the area of technology is greater today than it has ever been, with women responsible for $55 billion of technology purchases yearly, and with women expected to represent an even larger slice of the technology pie as marketers tap more effectively into this demographic. Already, the percentage of women using technology—including the Internet, computers, and other trendy consumer electronics (PDAs, cell phones, DVD players, high-tech TVs, etc.)—is on the rise, with the growth spanning age and racial groups as well as income brackets. During 2004, for example, over 51% of Internet users were women, and this percentage is expected to increase to almost 53% by 2008. As the ones responsible for making household technology purchases, women are considered a prime target market for consumer electronics, and they are also a growing force in the area of technology in the workplace. Currently, nearly one-third (31%) of women use a personal computer at work, and more than one-fifth (21%) say that the Internet has changed the way they work.

Tracking the all-important and fast-evolving female market for technology and the related products, this all-new report from Packaged Facts analyzes women’s attitudes, preferences, and purchasing behaviors in light of three key areas: technology at work, technology at home, and online shopping, with a particular focus on personal computers, Internet, and online purchasing behaviors and attitudes. In doing so, this data-rich report tabulates and examines women’s use of technology by age segment, race/ethnicity, marketing region, and socio-economic characteristics, as well as actual behaviors and attitudes, based on custom tabulations of spring 2005 Simmons Market Research Bureau data. It also identifies and examines trends and opportunities for future market development, such as retail-level initiatives aimed at making women feel more welcome in box-box retailers like Best Buy and Circuit City, and female demographic segments and product categories to watch.
