Consumer Profiles for Singapore

This Consumer Profiles product presents the population of Singapore, divided into ten easy-to-understand consumer classifications.

The product is based on segmentation criteria including socio-demographics, lifestyle values and orientation, mind-set, motivation and consumer behaviour in Singapore. The data has been drawn from a representative global survey of around 30,000 consumers with various, relatively homogeneous, populations with different consumer characteristics and buying patterns. The research is then distilled into globally identifiable consumer profiles. Consistent and comparable data, with seamless transitions across borders, make this product ideal for international projects.

Consumer Profiles for Singapore can be purchased on its own or bundled with GIS polygon data for administrative regions, postcodes and small areas. This effective combination will allow you to perform enlightening analysis supported by stunning visualisations.

The Republic of Singapore is an island city-state in maritime Southeast Asia. It is situated just north of the equator, off the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula. Singapore comprises the main island plus the islet of Pedra Branca and sixty-three other satellite islands and islets. The Straits of Malacca lie to the west and the South China Sea to the east. Singapore has undertaken extensive land reclamation projects since independence, increasing its land mass by 25%. It the third most densely populated country in the world, with Chinese making up around 75% of the population and has four official languages: English, Malay, Mandarin and Tamil.
The island of Singapore was an important trading post in the region for centuries. It was in the 1600s that it came to the attention of the Portuguese, and then the Dutch, who exerted a good deal of control over trade in the region. In the 1800s, the British arrived, recognising Singapore’s potential and value. A deal was struck with the then Sultan and Singapore became a British possession. The British built a naval base in Singapore. In WWII, Singapore was occupied by the Japanese and experienced great turmoil.
Post-WWII, Singapore became independent and then joined with Malaya, North Borneo and Sarawak to become part of the new federation of Malaysia. In 1965, Singapore was expelled from the new federation and once again became independent.
It is now a unitary parliamentary republic. While elections are democratic, the government exerts significant control over society and politics, and the same political party has been in interrupted power since independence.
Singapore is one of the Asian Tiger nations in terms of external trade and its highly developed economy. It is a significant financial and shipping hub. Its economy is diversified with the top three areas being financial services, manufacturing and oil-refining, followed by electronics, chemicals, engineering and bio-medical science. Tourism is a major industry. An expensive place to live, Singapore is home to the world’s highest percentage of millionaires, and 91% of the population own their own homes. As a country, it ranks high on social performance indicators such as health, education, safety. A notoriously conservative way of life has led to challenges in some areas of society, such as LGBTQ rights, and internet censorship but Singapore is gradually becoming a little more liberal.
The cultural diversity of Singapore is apparent in its cuisine, literature, visual and performing arts and music. It is famed for its high standard of recreational living, with clubs which were established in 1800s. The Singapore Grand Prix, running since 2008 is considered a highlight on the F1 calendar.
On the world stage, Singapore is a member of the United Nations, a founder member of ASEAN and a member of the Commonwealth of Nations.

Consumer Profiles - Type A

These consumers have the highest per-capita income of all segments.

In terms of choice of smartphone, Apple is preferred to Samsung.

Consumer Profiles - Type B

Consumer Profiles - Type C
