• Population: the highest represents the largest domestic market
• Inflation rate: reflects the extent to which there is a healthy spending environment with low being good, high being bad
• GDP/capita: the higher this is, the higher the potential purchasing power of the market
• GDP growth: the higher this is, the more the economy is growing and the higher the growth potential in the market
• GINI Index: the lower this is, the better the distribution of wealth across the population i.e. a larger middle class in the population
• % of population below poverty line: the lowest means the more people who could afford a product or service
• Household consumption as % of GDP: all purchases of goods by households (excluding property) to meet their everyday needs; the higher this is, the more attractive the market for a firm that makes/sells products/services that meet households’ daily needs
• 25-54 year olds as % of population: most likely to have highest disposable income / purchasing power but need to consider whether there is an ageing population
