The Maslow’s hierarchy level helps the marketers in understanding the consumers shopping habits. The first level of Maslow’s theory is the house, so the marketers market houses and shelters to the consumers to fulfil their primary need without which consumers are vulnerable to the weather. The next level is the safety, consumers after purchasing homes will look for safety in their houses for which consumers will look for security systems and thus will purchase a system to make his family and himself safer.
After satisfying the basic needs consumers look for next level needs i.e. social needs. In this level comes the friends and family, after having the home, consumers want it to make visitor’s friendly with various facilities like soft bed, decorative walls, comfortable sofa set. So accommodate the friends and family consumer will look for furnishings.
