US Millennials & Their Consumer Behaviour Analysed by Packaged Facts

29 May 2012 • by Natalie Aster

On the surface, very little appears monolithic about adult Millennials (defined as those in the 18- to 29-year-old age group, and also known as Gen-Y). Millennials include full-time college students, late-20-somethings who have moved back to their parents’ home, and married and unmarried couples with and without kids. Gen-Y consumers encompass college grads with high-paying full-time jobs and credit cards and bank accounts as well as those struggling with low-paying part-time jobs. They include a high-growth multicultural segment spearheaded by U.S.-born “fusionistas” who move effortlessly between their Latino heritage and the youth culture of America.

According to the report “Millennials in the U.S.” by Packaged Facts, there are many generational ties that bind this diverse group of young consumers and differentiate them from previous generations of adults. These include a deep comfort with technology, heavy involvement in social media, a multitasking mentality, non-stop immersion with screens on cell phones, digital tablets and PCs, a shared preference for hip-hop music, and parents who act like friends as well as authority figures. The challenge for marketers is to leverage this common ground to find Millennials whoever and wherever they are and engage them no matter what they are doing.
