English term or phrase: trading-down
Bonjour à tous,

Il s'agit ici d'un bilan d'un grand groupe spécialisé dans les produits de grande consommation.

"XXX is vulnerable to trading-down by consumers (using more private label products)."

"XXX est exposée à ??? par les/des consommateurs (qui utilisent davantage de produits de marque distributeur)."

Comment traduiriez-vous ce "trading-down by consumers" ici ?

Je comprends l'idée d'une baisse de gamme.

J'ai rencontré cette définition sur cette page http://www.xerfi.fr/etudes/9dis04.pdf : "trading-down = emprunt des codes marketing du luxe par les marques de grande consommation."

Quelle serait votre proposition ?

Merci à tous

Reference information:
Voici un lien qui ne laisse guère de doutes quant au sens de "trading down" dans ce contexte. Il s'agit bien de l'idée d'une "baisse en gamme" de la part des consommateurs.

Example sentence(s):
  • Recession-hit Spanish consumers continued to “trade down” in the second quarter, boosting the results of companies focused on providing cheap alternatives to the country’s ailing dominant brands.
