5W Public Relations consumer PR team has recently released our annual Consumer Report 2024.

Checkout a snippet of the full Report

The need to stay on top of work and in touch with
each other in a world made virtual by the
pandemic has convinced many consumers that
they can’t scrimp on effective tech—the category
was named the most likely splurge by all age
groups. Getting and staying healthy was also
important for most people we surveyed.

The remaining top categories for splashing the
cash were a mixture of home comforts designed
to make time spent indoors more appealing; and
social experiences, as we continue our attempts
at returning to normalcy.

Despite widespread scientific advice about
staying fit to fight the pandemic, and at a time
when many people were unable to access gyms
or even venture outdoors due to lockdowns,
consumers were most likely to save money on
fitness activities and equipment.

Other areas have yet to see a resurgence of
splurging as people continue to feel their way into an
uncertain future. These categories include cosmetic
procedures, clothing & fashion, and travel &
experiences.

The top splurges and saves of 2022 mirror our
previous report in 2021, suggesting that as products
in these areas continue to evolve, consumers will
continue to spend.
