By Luke Barras-hill |

Standard post slide_October_2nd editionWelcome to the latest edition of ‘Five Things You Need To Know’; a twice-monthly statistics snapshot relevant to all industry stakeholders.

Here, you’ll discover five important facts – brought to you by the leading travel retail consumer research agency m1nd-set – about what you really need to know in the travel retail market, now.

This time, m1nd-set reveals that leisure travellers (74%) are the predominant non-shopper group, followed by males (55%).

The chief reason flagged by shoppers for not filling their trolleys or baskets is ‘No Motivating promotions/sales’ (39%), with Americans (41%) tying particular importance to these aspects.

Regionally, airports in Latin America (54%) host the highest proportion of travel retail non-shoppers. Meanwhile on a category level (globally), electronics (78%) faces the highest conversion challenge when it comes to coaxing spends from discerning consumers.
