Asia Pacific Consumers on a Budget for 2012?

Asia’s consumers tighten their belts with ‘fast fashion’ & online retail

 

Asia’s increasingly sophisticated consumers are embracing ‘fast fashion’ and online shopping as inflationary concerns mean purse strings are tightened across the region. Even the traditionally heavy spending Chinese consumers have tightened their belts, with money saving tips dominating discussions on China’s online forums. Price rises affecting everything from food to daily necessities are making average Chinese consumers ever more cautious about their spending habits.

                 
Similar cautiousness over spending is reflected in the region’s growing interest in ‘fast fashion’. “A majority of consumers in Asia-Pacific, while aspiring to high-end luxury apparel brands, continue to trade up first to more ‘branded’ brands that are still affordable,” said Geok Leng Loo, head of Asia-Pacific research at Euromonitor International in Singapore. She added, “‘fast fashion’ remains immensely popular in the region..”
 
         

In Australia, the battle of clicks versus bricks continues, with shoppers ditching “bricks and mortar” shops for online retail, citing lower prices, convenience and access to a wider range of products as key reasons for the switch. 
                
   
Will Asia Pacific’s consumers continue to tighten their belts in 2012?
