Some Gen Z takeaways from TRENDZ
The young people of Generation Z today represent 31% of the global population, and almost 50% in certain regions of Africa. On a global scale, they have spent €3,000 billion or just under €60 billion for France.
Eight times out of ten, people use the term Millennials instead of Gen Z to describe the generation born from 1995 onwards. Generation Y -- also known as the Millennials -- still comes top of searches on Google Trends, while Gen Z remains difficult to apprehend, seeing as there are more than 20 terms for naming it.
One major difference compared to other generations, is that Gen Z is characterized by its racial inclusivity. Plus, 48% of Gen Zers value gender fluid or gender neutral brands, according to research from McKinsey.
