Feb 10, 2021 3:37:03 PM / by Larry Julius

There are 501,500 adult women in Southwest Florida. Based on research from the Harvard Business Review, as a consumer group, females account for 70-80 percent of all consumer purchasing through a combination of their buying power and influence.  According to Nielsen, this will amount to between $16.7 billion and $19.1 billion this year.

Overall, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the US Census Bureau:

  • Single women across all income brackets spend, on average, $34,817 on goods and service
  • Working married women contribute over a third of their families’ incomes
  • Over a quarter (29.4%) of wives earned more than their husbands in 2018, an increase from 15.9% in 1981.

Furthermore, according to research published by Forbes:

  • The top homebuyers after married couples are single women (18%, double the percentage for single men at 9%).
  • Women are 50% more likely than men to regularly watch online how-to videos.
  • 94% of women between the ages of 15-35 spend over an hour per day shopping online.
  • 70% of travel consumers are women.
  • 85% of women say that if they like a brand, they will remain loyal to it.

Last week, according to Nielsen, 179,642 single, adult women tuned-in to a Fort Myers radio station.  This is 89% of every consumer who fits this description.

Why should Southwest Florida small business owners take note of this demographic? A study by investment bank Morgan Stanley finds 41% of working-age women are single. That number is expected to increase to 45% over the next ten years.

The study, called 'Growth of the SHEconomy', indicates that single women outspend the average household in many retail categories. Remarkably, says, Erica Sweeney of MarketingDive, "Women purchase more than half of products traditionally considered 'male' including autos, home improvement products, and consumer electronics."
