  • VoCUL: No Holiday Bump for Tablet and PC Buying (Leading Indicator)

    Consumer PC and Tablet Buying: Consumer tablet demand has steadily declined in recent years. Our latest survey shows further challenges as the holiday season failed to provide the typical bump in tablet buying. Apple and Microsoft are focusing on high-end 'Pro' tablets, while Samsung continues to offer a wide range of price points and screens sizes. For Amazon, the focus has been on lower-cost tablets that leverage the company's large ecosystem. A November survey of 2,257 primarily North American respondents from 451 Research's Leading Indicator panel focused on how these strategies are translating to consumer demand and customer satisfaction. The survey also took a look at the PC market, including Microsoft's upgraded Surface Book.

  • VoCUL: Leap in Overall Spending - Expectations and Confidence Surge (Leading Indicator)

    Macroeconomic Outlook - Consumer Spending: After five consecutive declines, our December survey is showing a leap in US consumer spending growth going forward. The findings also point to a surge in expectations and confidence. The survey of 1,784 US consumers from 451 Research's Leading Indicator panel -- completed December 21 -- shows increases for nearly every spending category, and the positive movement is also reflected across most major retailers. As seen in previous surveys, the uncertainty of the US presidential election was a contributing factor to delayed holiday spending this year. Now that the uncertainty has passed, consumers are more willing to spend.
