2014). There is no suggestion that there is a specific demographic or location for those who would be in this market as it includes a vast variety of customers. Carpet replacement is not likely to be required for a long time and customers will be loyal due to the relationships formed. Segment 4: The General Domestic Market
A survey of the new home buying market suggests this segment consists mainly of people older than the average New Zealand adult, who are either married or living with a partner but

no children, due to their age (Magill, Jones, & Kalafatelis, 2013). They are likely to be building a new house or holiday home, earn more than the average income, and be of New Zealand
European descent (Magill, Jones, & Kalafatelis, 2013). These people are cost­conscious and require a wide range of product choice options. They will require cheap and effective installation options, requesting a package deal to have the carpet laying included.
