The first observation drawn from the analysis of the results of this survey is that only 47% of French people describe themselves as"faithful", while 37% are classified as"zappers" (1). While the majority of loyal customers are people over 50, retired, couples without children, zappers are generally young people aged 18 to 24 students, rather suspicious of brands.

The lack of competitiveness of the offer is the reason for the infidelity to a brand cited by 42% of French people. 19% changed brands because the products and services no longer met their expectations, and 12% felt they had not received the service because of their loyalty.
