Consumer Lifestyles in Thailand

Consumer Lifestyles in Thailand

Thailand’s consumer outlook remains essentially healthy, with a growing middle class willing to spend not just on household essentials but also on leisure activities and luxuries. Thais are also enthusiastically embracing e-commerce, especially on their mobile phones. But the on-going political unrest is a cause for concern and is expected to have an impact on consumer behaviour.
