Consumer Goods

Consumer goods (CG) industry provides wide range of daily usable products that are manufactured according to individual usage and as per end user requirements. Consumer goods industry is a flourishing and intensifying industry due to its fast processing and quick customer services. 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). Demand for non-durable consumer goods is more than durable consumer goods due to their less shelf life. 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).
