Impact of Global Economic Crisis On Consumer Attitudes & Behaviors In Netherlands

Mumbai, India (PressExposure) October 10, 2009 -- Global Economic Crisis: The Impact On Consumer Attitudes & Behaviors In The Netherlands report ( [] ) shows that in April 2009, more than three quarters of Dutch consumers perceived they were living in a recession. This is indicative of the 'recessionary mindset' influencing consumer behavior. Symptomatic of falling consumer confidence is the fact that more than 25% of Dutch consumers experienced falling job security and diminishing confidence in the housing market in 2008-09

Less than one-third of Dutch consumers felt that their lifestyle has been impacted by the recession. Suddenly, they have been forced to re-evaluate their spending, including where they do their grocery shopping as well as their in-store choices. Nevertheless, they remain comparatively content and confident in their purchasing power

Half of Dutch shoppers are also 'frequent buyers' of private label products to save money. Many are now likely to consider private label products to be on a par, if not better than market leading brands, although this mentality does differ depending on product category

No doubt influenced by the price war in grocery retailing over the last decade, for 51% of Dutch shoppers, lower prices have a high amount of influence over where people do their most of their grocery shopping. Nevertheless, the quality of products sold has more influence over their (changeable) grocery shopping destinations
