Explicit gender marketing is low, of the new products tracked between the period 1st January 2000 to 1st January 2005, 0.6% were aimed at women and 0.2% were targeted at men. Women dominate consumer goods spending. They are responsible for 80% of all purchases and 82% of all consumer goods spending.
