Description

The Germany Marketing to Parents Market Report 2022 identifies consumers’ attitudes towards family day trips and holidays, the impact of the cost-of-living crisis, and the conflict in Ukraine on Marketing to Parents in Germany. This report covers the Marketing to Parents in Germany market size, market forecast, market segmentation, and industry trends for Marketing to Parents in Germany.

Current Market Landscape

German parents are spending more quality time with their family now than compared to before the pandemic. The COVID-19 outbreak gave families the opportunity to spend more time together and reignited a sense of closeness. Parents who work at home have more time for activities which has a positive impact on their wellbeing and spending quality time with their family. Hybrid working will continue in a post-COVID world. Employers need to support employees when working out of home, particularly if they want to encourage workers back to the work location. For example, employers could partner with wellbeing and sleep-health apps to offer subscriptions or put on exercise classes at work at lunchtime.

Rising inflation since the beginning of this year and the consequent increase in the cost of living has already been felt by parents and is predicted to rise further due to the conflict in Ukraine.

Marketing to Parents in Germany Market Share and Key Industry Trends

While the rising cost of living will tighten parents’ budgets, the effects on household finances will not be felt equally. For wealthier households, rising inflation will be an irritation, for households already on a tight budget, it will be a serious threat to their finances meaning they will have to cut back on discretionary spending such as luxury goods, travel, and leisure.

However, according to our parents market research Germany, the cost-of-living crisis will be countered by the built-up demand among parents to spend on leisure and travel after having limited opportunities to do so in the past two years. Brands should now be utilising the pent-up demand and provide opportunities for families to enjoy themselves together outside of the home through leisure and travel experiences.

  • 40% of German parents are spending more quality time with their family now than compared to before the pandemic.
  • 79% of parents describe their financial wellbeing as ‘steady’.
  • 40% of parents are spending less on day trips and holidays with their family since the pandemic.
  • 49% of German parents consider the environmental impact of their decision-making.

Future Trends in Marketing to Parents in Germany

As of January 2022, financial wellbeing remains steady among the majority of parents, and coupled with the fact that parents have spent far less money on day trips and holidays in the past two years, there will still be demand for fun family experiences outside of the home. Travel and leisure brands can celebrate the increased closeness among families and position their experiences as being a central opportunity for families to spend quality time together.

Moreover, travel brands that can align with parents’ priorities will be able to stand out. In particular, the pandemic spurred on environmental concerns, and as parents look to travel again, they will want to do this sustainably and responsibly. Travel agents and brands should be offering sustainable holidays that include eco-friendly modes of transport, as well as responsible tourism, including respecting and learning from local cultures.
