The Millennial Opportunity

Do you know what IRL means? If you answered no, you’re probably not a millennial. But you likely know that millennials are a trending topic these days -- for good reason. These 18 to 34 year-olds, numbering 83 million, overtook baby boomers in 2015 to become America’s biggest-ever demographic.[1] By 2020, millennials are expected to surpass Gen-X in earning power and make up 75% of the U.S. workforce five years later in 2025.[2] We find that millennials, aka digital-natives, are a compelling segment when it comes to (surprise!) online media and services. They also have a sizable footprint in the residential rental market, accounting for 39% of renters, even though they are just a quarter of the total population.[3] This rental trend should have some runway, given the widely documented delays in marriage, children and home ownership by this generation. Finally, let’s remember that millennials came of age during the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression and have the financial scars to prove it. So in real life (IRL), millennials may not yet be the voracious consumer across every young-skewing category as only advertisers can dream. See more
