Market Research on the Women's
Automotive and Travel Markets

Women have become a dominant force in business, automotive purchases, and business travel...and are surpassing men in the use of the Internet to manage it all.

Here are the facts; women purchase more than 50% of all new vehicles, 48% of all used vehicles, influence 80% of all sales, comprise 40% of all business travelers, influence 80% of all luxury and family travel, own 38% of all US businesses contributing $1.6 trillion to the national economy, and have now reached 59% of all Internet users.

They also comprise 40% of all business travelers today, up 5000% since 1970. And, women take more all-female adventure tours than ever before in history spawning a new sub-travel industry of adventure travel and women-only tours.

Below are reseach-based articles and statistics gleaned from a variety of reputable research firms that offer facts on women's trends in these four industries.

For nearly 3 decades, Road & Travel Magazine founder and Editor-in-Chief Courtney Caldwell has been the leading voice in understanding and promoting what women want in automobile and travel products and services. To review how her experience can benefit your organization or increase brand awareness as a spokesperson please visit her press kit summary for details.
