since 2006, consumer spending on halloween objects, design, and memorable has grown 12 percent each year, with consumer participation also on the rise. a large part of this can be attributed to halloween’s growing popularity among adults, and even more importantly millennials, who presently make up one of the largest spending groups. it is predicted that this year in the united states alone, 70 percent of the population are predicted to celebrate the holiday. with millennials nearing the pinnacle of their consumption years, they are looking towards halloween as an opportunity to not only shop, but share their purchased paraphernalia on instagram and across social media — reaching a network of millions. read more about consumer habits this halloween on business of fashion here
