As global attitudes on youth, middle-age and the elderly have altered, the traditionally-perceived boundaries of age-appropriate lifestyles, behaviours and preferences are blurring, making it more difficult for marketers to stereotype consumers along the lines of age alone. This new report examines the impact of age compression and age stretching on markets and suggests ways in which marketers can find new ways to identify, communicate and connect with consumers in the future.

Strategy Briefings offer unique insight into emerging trends world-wide. Aimed squarely at strategists and planners, they draw on Euromonitor International’s vast information resources to give top line insight across markets and within consumer segments. Written by some of our most experienced analysts, they are designed as provocations for senior management to use in their own forum, allowing them to stand back and reflect on the behaviour and motivation driving global markets today and tomorrow

Data coverage: market sizes (historic and forecasts), company shares, brand shares and distribution data.
