How Millennials and Gen-Z are transforming Qualitative Research

In today’s time, millennials and Gen Z can be seen as the leaders of the digital age. Their product choices and shopping preferences have an enormous impact on the brands. As they have become more potential customers for brands now, it is important to understand their behaviors, lifestyle, shopping patterns and habits for market researchers. Companies need to evolve their market research strategies to analyze and understand these new generations.

Unlike Baby Boomers, Millennials and Gen Z grew up with the latest technology. These new generations don’t know a world without internet, smartphones, and laptops. Be it entertainment or shopping, they like to use their smartphones for all types of activities all day long. They make their buying decisions after reading reviews or watching videos of the product.
