Consumer goods, which are also called final goods, are goods that are put on the market for the consumer to fulfill wants or needs. Examples for consumer goods might be food or a home appliance. Consumer goods are often subdivided into convenience goods (for example soap, or shampoo), and shopping goods (which usually are more expensive, and often last longer).
