Over 90% of urban consumers in Russia know a multitude of German brands and show a strong preference for them. German brands are liked among all three social classes represented in the survey – emerging middle class, middle class and upper middle class. It is interesting to point out that German brands are most strongly favored by 94% of the emerging middle class with gross monthly income of RUB 12,000-36,000 (EUR 290-880). This indicates an immense potential for German products and services among the growing urban population in Russia.
In total, 1,000 Russian consumers from Moscow, St. Petersburg, Yekaterinburg,
