Majority Of Millennial Consumers In Asia-Pacific Still Living With Parents, Survey Reveals

October 30, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
In Asia-Pacific, 63 percent of millennials 22‒29 years old are living with their parents, according to a CBRE survey. In China, more than 60 percent of millennials are staying with their parents, the third highest in the region after Hong Kong and India, which both had around 80 percent. Data from the report revealed cultural norms and high property prices are keeping Chinese millennials from buying their own place, with 28 percent of respondents claiming it would take them 2‒5 years to afford to move out. Almost 90 percent of Chinese millennials dream of buying property, compared with the Asia-Pacific average of 55 percent. Millennial consumers in China spend 14 percent of their incomes on non-food purchases, the highest rate in the region.
