The economic downturn has caused consumers to alter their spending habits and forces consumer packaged goods (CPG) manufacturers and retailers to reevaluate their consumer marketing strategies. The Nielsen Company has developed an approach to estimate CPG category vulnerability to recessionary effects and forecast future performance using macroeconomic and socio-demographic indicators, allowing CPG companies to optimally position themselves during a recession and build-long term competitive advantage.

Consumers are feeling the squeeze as they are caught between rising costs and lower spending power. As a result, many consumers are reprioritizing or altogether changing their spending habits. For CPG manufacturers and retailers, this requires a change in the way they market to consumers. And, knowing which products are most affected by a recession helps CPG companies maintain focus on the right categories and brands in order to succeed.
