Consumer Class

Consumer Class

The class of persons able to buy goods and services other than those that satisfy their basic needs. For example, members of the consumer class may buy cellular phones and multiple automobiles. The consumer class may broadly correspond to the middle class, but if a country is sufficiently wealthy, even its lower classes may belong to the consumer class in some way.
