In an effort to help its clients develop complete insights about the unique characteristics of the burgeoning Hispanic community in the U.S., the Nielsen Company and Phoenix Multicultural will launch a national Homescan Hispanic Consumer Panel with a research sample of 11,000 households. Phoenix Multicultural will field and maintain the panel households.
According to promotional materials, Nielsen will expand its existing Homescan Hispanic Panel in Los Angeles from 1,500 to 2,500 households to provide Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) manufacturers and retailers detailed views of the needs, preferences and shopping habits of Hispanic consumers.
“We have worked with Nielsen since the original Los Angeles panel was established and we are very proud and honored to be Nielsen’s partner for this national expansion as well,” said Raul Lopez, president of Phoenix Multicultural.
The Hispanic population is expected to reach 50 million by 2010 and to continue growing in influence and purchasing power. Important to the FMCG market space, the Hispanic population should yield 18 percent of all U.S. households with children by 2010. Consumers who elect to join a Homescan Consumer Panel scan their purchases across all shopping outlets on a continuous basis. Panel expansion activity is underway and due to be completed by December 31, 2007. The first client deliverables are expected to be available May 2008.

This $1 trillion market is an undeniable opportunity that demands unique strategies for all leading brands.”
