Technology & Web Usage

The technology, beyond its functionality, is a content creator and facilitator, a status indicator or an agregator of the « time spent in the family » (using different devices). The media consumption becomes more and more interesting. We discover a new category of consumers as niche in briefs – mature families – as interesting in the way it aproaches the media channels. They are the ones that once they have discovered the utility of the smartphone or the diversity of the online media they become loyal to it and spend on it in between 4 to 6 hours a day.


Teh content is the « hero ». The one that dictates and creates types of entertainmnet. The mature consumers are into traditional media in a larger proportion, while the younger segments are interested in the type of the content and its quality. The talent shows, the block busters and the games with high stakes are the ones that make the youngsters postition the TV as an alternative to be taken in account.

In this year’s edition, the accesnt laid on the services’ market, offering a general view of the way in which they are consumed by the analized segments and over the sources of influence while taking the decisions in using certain categories of services, such as retail, telecom, medial and financial services.


Trends in Action

When it comes to families with children we can observe a new type of « generations’ gap » determined by a multitude of external factors : from limited type spendt with the family daily, after the work hours, to the necessity of working outside the country.

The young people with ages in between 18 and 34, unmarried and with no children (Single Youth) are more and more involved and social responsable. Moreover, they are representing the generation with important hobbies that they desire to materialize by the means of their jobs or extra-jobs.

The mature consumers are more and more active and oriented towards the idea of experimenting (in terms of technology and brands).
