consumer goods – products that people buy for their own use
(Pronounced kuhn-soo-mer guds)
These are goods bought and used by people rather than by manufacturers for producing other goods.
To remember what consumer goods means use the following mnemonic:
I'm constantly buying innumerable goods (consumer goods) but they are all for my own use.
Consumer goods are the end result of production and manufacturing. Clothing, food products and dishwashers are examples of common consumer goods. Also known as final goods, they are sold to people for their use or enjoyment. They are classified as durable or non-durable.
