Consumer Lifestyles in the US

LONDON, March 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- just published a new market research report:

Consumer Lifestyles in the US

After several years of belt-tightening, US consumers appear to be getting ready to open their wallets again in light of the improving economy and rebounding house prices, both of which have boosted consumer confidence. On the other hand, many consumers continue to face obstacles, including high levels of student loan debt, a less-than-robust, albeit improving, jobs market and worries about retirement savings. Regardless, pent-up demand is driving increased demand in several product categories.
