Consumer goods mainly consists of food products and beverages, healthcare products, cosmetics products, household cleaning products, variety of home appliances, electrical & electronics goods and so on. On the basis of product durability, consumer goods are divided into two categories i.e. durable consumer goods and non-durable consumer goods. Durable consumer goods consists of long lasting products whereas non-durable consumer goods mainly includes single usable products. Non-durable consumer goods are referred as fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) or consumer packaged goods (CPG).

Durable consumer goods have high life span of one to three years and more which leads to comparatively lesser investment by end users. Durable consumer goods are further sub divided into white consumer goods (e.g. Air conditioners, refrigerators, washing machines), brown consumer goods (e.g. mixers, grinders, iron, fans) and electronics consumer goods (e.g. TVs, PCs, cameras, mobiles).
