Ramadan, the holy month brings with it a change in the rhythm of daily life. With activity during the long daytime hours slowing down, evenings and late nights come alive with a mix of religious, social and infotainment activities.
Apart from being a key part of the region’s religious calendar, it is a critical component of marketing and communication plans for most companies. Strategies, tactics used by marketers during the rest of the year may not apply here as consumers choose to engage & interact with categories and brands in a different way.
Understanding emerging trends in Ramadan would help marketers identify opportunities to stay ahead and gain competitive advantage.
Lots of information is available around the religious behaviour, rituals, media consumption specific to this holy month, however none available that maps the shifts the entire continuum of ‘Prior to’, ‘During’ and ‘Post’ Ramadan from the point of view of consumer consumption behaviour, attitudes, media, lifestyle, etc.
