Women Consumers

Two factors keep women consumers into limelight that include their identity of constituting to 50% of whole consumer base besides their important roles in purchase decisions that even go up to even 80% of all purchase done.

With their dual roles as professionals and homemakers women now have ample influence in the families. Such scenarios bring many disadvantages including them finding least or no time to facing increased pressures and most importantly their gradual de-linking from thetraditional culture of obtaining the knowledge they sought. Markets therefore avail the benefits of those situations through proving the readymade solutions to women for services or products they may choose.
