Singles tend to be less experimental when it comes to product selection. Consumers who live by themselves are more likely to stick to tried and tested brands when shopping. They are less swayed by "gimmicks", preferring to choose products that identify strongly with their values.
Socializing outside the home remains important. Though they might live by themselves, these consumers are more likely to prefer socializing out of the home than in it. Manufacturers must understand that the key to success with this demographic is not to merely create "single-serve" products to be consumed at home.
