Hispanic Market Research: How It’s Changed in the Past 15 Years

America is changing. If 2020 wasn’t a clear indication of the forces reshaping our nation, then consider some of the following statistics compiled by Pew Research Center, PBS and more:

Obviously, the U.S is undergoing a fundamental shift in its demographic makeup. That’s what makes it so critical for companies to utilize solid market research strategies. During tumultuous times like these, understanding the forces shaping current market conditions can help businesses craft meaningful products and procedures that address real — not perceived — issues. Here’s a brief overview of why Hispanic market research is critical in 2021:


Because the Hispanic population in the U.S. is so large now, and because its median age is 30 years, the overall American consumer landscape is significantly different than even just a few years ago. Both the age of and quantity (of individuals) within a market carry great significance since technological habits and interests and purchasing power are all necessarily affected by the characteristics of the people yielding them. Hispanic market research is needed in order to fully grasp all relevant consumer personas in 2021 and beyond so that companies can meet consumer demand, reach more people, increase brand loyalty and make more sales!

Depending on age and location, many Hispanics will respond to different language-based marketing efforts, with older, foreign-born Hispanics often preferring Spanish content and younger, native Hispanic Americans often looking for a more English-based or bilingual approach. Hispanic market research helps determine when and where and how to target specific audiences through language and cultural messaging.


More Hispanics are going to college; more have jobs and are buying houses. Hispanics have more purchasing power than at any other time in our history. This growth has exciting implications for companies if they use Hispanic market research to identify specific wants and needs.


Hispanics account for nearly 19% of the U.S.’s total population, making the Hispanic market a sizable and profitable opportunity for those companies willing to probe it with actionable market research.
