SmallCap Sentinel: Building Market Share in a Hot Segment
IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 8, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- "The rapid growth of the Hispanic population in the United States must be seen as a boon to businesses that target the domestic Latin market," said SmallCap Sentinel analyst D.R. Clark. "Recent U.S. Census figures indicate the U.S. population grew by 2.8 million between July 1, 2004, and July 1, 2005. Hispanics accounted for 1.3 million of that increase alone. This creates a unique opportunity for marketers seeking this fast-growing segment whose culture, preferences and even language may differ from the market at large."
