Consumer Non-Durables sector definition

Non-durable goods are products consumers purchase with the plan to use for a short period of time. Also referred to as consumable goods, most non-durable goods are expected to be consumed or used in three years or less. Because of this basic characteristic, non-durable goods can be a wide variety of products. There are essentially three types of non-durable goods. They may be literally consumed, as with food and drinks. They can also be utilized until they are gone, such as deodorant, toothpaste or dish soap. The third type of non-durable good is a product that is used and no longer needed, intended for one use, or wears out from normal use, such as socks, paper plates and light bulbs.

Consumer Non-Durables sector is composed of 227 companies with a total market capitalization of $2.43 tn
