Report Scope and Definitions

Mintel defines Millennials as the generation born between 1980 and 1996. In 2023, members of the Millennial generation are between the ages of 27 and 43. For the purposes of this Report, Mintel has further defined Millennial consumer segments as the following:

  • Younger Millennials: those born between 1989 and 1996, who are aged 27-34.
  • Older Millennials: those born between 1980 and 1988, who are aged 35-43.

“Hispanic” entails anyone who has origins in a Spanish-speaking country, and “Latino” denotes individuals who have origins in a Latin American country, regardless of whether it is a Spanish-speaking country. This Report covers both Hispanic and Latino consumers, and the term is used interchangeably throughout to reflect the diversity of this demographic.

Hispanic Millennial Consumer Overview

According to the US Census Bureau, there are 16,208,000 Hispanic Millennials. This means that this demographic makes up almost a quarter of the total US Millennial population. Given the prominence of Millennials as the largest demographic group (see our Marketing to Millennials Report), Hispanic Millennials present a significant audience to tailor marketing efforts toward.

How to Market to Hispanic Millennials

Although generally satisfied with life, Hispanic Millennials state finances as a top stressor in 2023. This is especially true for younger Millennials, mothers, lower-income households and singles. Inflation is a likely cause, but there’s more to examine. There is an underlying desire to achieve more, and while price will be important, marketers can appeal to a multifaceted definition of value by pairing value messages with other purchase drivers – including mental health.

Our expert observes differences in life satisfaction between married Hispanic Millennials and those who are single. Married Millennials tend to have higher incomes, potentially leading to their higher life satisfaction. As singles get older, there may be a perception of limited partner options, so brands should address these feelings. Highlighting the positive aspects of being single, such as promoting cleaning as self-care (eg Clorox’s “YAS CLEAN” campaign) can resonate with single Millennials.

Brands will also need to meet these Millennials where they socialize, For example, Mintel’s Social Commerce Report finds that Hispanic Millennial consumers are more likely than non-Hispanic Millennials to find ads on social media helpful.

Expert Analysis

Stefanie Kundakjian, a leading multicultural insights analyst with a focus on Hispanic consumers, delivers commentary.

Hispanic Millennials experience satisfaction in their lives, but they also face high levels of anxiety and frustration. Notable variations exist among younger and older Millennials making it crucial to avoid one-size-fits-all campaigns in crafting relatable marketing messages that resonate with their unique lifestage. Financial stress emerges as their primary concern overall, with variations in segments experiencing stress related to relationship status and managing responsibilities. Providing tailored guidance to enhance their financial skills and offering support to manage their mental health can be beneficial for Hispanic Millennials.
