USA Arts and Crafts Consumer Market 2014

Researchmoz provider of premium market research report announces the addition of "The Arts and Crafts Consumer - US - January 2014" to its store

 

Albany, NY -- (ReleaseWire) -- 04/21/2014 -- There is a core audience of arts and crafts consumers,generally women aged 18-34. Yet marketers have plentiful opportunities to attract new audiences. Parents, younger men, unskilled crafters and consumers selling arts and crafts online are just some examples. Marketers can engage with and increase their share of consumers by understanding the specific needs of these individuals.

This report looks at the following areas:
- How has the expanded role of the internet changed crafting landscape?
- Are there any unique ways to stand out among parents?
- How can marketers help expand the core audience?
- How can marketers engage with less “serious” crafters?

The US arts and crafts market has historically served a niche audience of mostly young women and more dedicated crafters: those who craft frequently, have a wide repertoire of activities, and consider themselves highly skilled. However, many opportunities exist to cast a wider net and attract more atypical audiences who exhibit basic interest in crafting.

The implication is that new audiences are opening up for marketers; young men and homeowners might find and share arts and crafts ideas online, for example. The core audience of arts and crafters is also changing as the rise has helped many dedicated crafters open a small business of their own. Marketers who can meet these new needs of the changing arts and crafts audience have an opportunity to engage with a large and growing market.
