A Multivariate Segmentation Model of the Older Uk Consumer Market.

Although the importance of older consumers to marketers is well documented, there exists a relative paucity of UK-based empirical studies into the attitudes, values, and behaviours of these consumers. Moreover, these consumers are often treated as a homogenous mass. Based on an extensive survey into a range of socio-demographic, biophysical, socio-psychological, psychographic, and behavioural variables amongst adults aged between 50 and 79 years (n = 650), this study confirms that the older consumer market is not homogeneous. Rather, analysis of the data leads to the first comprehensive segmentation model of the older consumer market in the UK.
