A JuxtConsult – Indicus Analytics Joint Study. Understanding the Indian ‘Families’ as Consumption Units
Great Indian Families 2009 Understanding the Indian ‘Families’ as Consumption Units A JuxtConsult – Indicus Analytics Joint Study
Correcting a basic market research anomaly! ? Consumers live their lives as ‘families’ and not households. And family consumptions get driven by the all the people living in them and not just by the ‘chief wage earner’ of the house ? How a family consumes gets defined as much by the ‘family composition’ and the ‘lifecycle stage’ the family is in, as by its socio- economic status and the ‘ability to spend’ ? It is therefore important to ‘distinguish’ and understand families by their ‘member composition’ to target them appropriately
The Macro Picture ? There are approx. 226 million families in India* (72 mn urban, 154 mn rural) ? The average family size varies from 1 to 6.9 depending on the family composition ? 25 mn Indian families (11% of all families) have more than 1 earning member ? 28 mn Indians (2.5%) prefer to read in English, marginally more than Malayalam. 50% of Indians preferring to read in English live in rural areas ? Average monthly family income in India is Rs.5,930 (‘per capita’ is Rs.1,350) ? 70% of all Indian families earn average to below-average incomes * accounting for approx. 1,112 million individuals (343 million urban and 769 million rural)
The Socio-Economic Landscape At 30%, highest proportion of families belong to SEC ‘R4’ ? 19.5 million families (27% of urban, or 9% of all Indian families) belong to SEC ‘A’ and ‘B’ ? Chief wage earners of 87% of SEC ‘A’ and 36% of SEC ‘B’ families are graduates ? No SEC ‘C’ and ‘R1’ chief wage earners are graduates. But 15% SEC ‘C’ families and 22% ? SEC ‘R1’ families have a graduate member within the household Clearly then, defining the socio-economic status (SEC) of a household using education ? level of the ‘chief wage earner’ is losing its meaning and can often mislead Time to look beyond the ‘urban-rural’ divide, and the ‘chief wage earner’ driven SEC definitions to understand families as consumption units!
The Real Socio-Economic Ladder by Incomes Monthly ‘Per Capita’ Family Income Ratios SEC ‘R4’ 1 ? (Rs.830) 1.1 ? SEC ‘R3’ times of R4 SEC ‘E’ ? 1.2 ” SEC ‘D’ 1.4 ” ? SEC ‘R2’ 1.6 ” ? SEC ‘C’ 1.8 ” ? SEC ‘R1’ 2.3 ” ? SEC ‘B’ 3.0 ” ? SEC ‘A’ 5.3 ” ?
The New Indian Consumer Pyramid 131 million families (634 million individuals) Tier 3 The Underprivileged 44 million families (217 million individuals) Tier 2 The Aspiring Class SEC A SEC D SEC C SEC B SEC E Tier 1 SEC R2 SEC R1 SEC R3 The Consuming Class SEC R4 51 million families (260 million individuals) * Total – 226 million families (1,112 million individuals)
Looking at Families by ‘Lifecycle’ Stage ? 51% Indians are married. But only 1 in 5 Indian family (21%) is a 3-generation joint family, or ‘Dynasties’ ? An equal proportion of Indian families (21%) are ‘Baby Sitters’ - with the eldest child below 12 years in age ? The majority 45% of Indian families are ‘Maturing Mentors’, or families with the youngest child above 12 years in age ? Young married couples without any children, the ‘Nest Builders’, account for only 7% of all Indian families ? The single independents, or ‘Free Birds’, account for only 1.3% of all Indian families
Glimpse of their Socio-Economic Status…. ? Dynasties have the highest average monthly family incomes (Rs. 6,530). But they have the lowest average ‘per capita’ monthly incomes (Rs.975) ? Free birds show the second highest average monthly family incomes (Rs.6,385), and the highest average ‘per capita’ monthly incomes (Rs.6,385)* ? Rented accommodation is highest among Free Birds (at 35%). Dynasties show the highest incidence of ‘inherited’ property (at 74%) ? Automobile ownership (both cars and 2-wheelers) is highest among Dynasties ? Preference for reading in English is relatively highest among ‘Free Birds’ (6%) and lowest among ‘Dynasties’ (0.5%) * Note – Sample of ‘Free Bird’ segment relatively low for high statistical accuracy of its segment level findings
