  • The usual acronym is "B2C" or "business to consumer" as opposed to "B2B" or "business to business". Feb 7, 2014 at 17:09

Consumer Business Industry generally would consist of a few related sectors such as consumer product companies, retail, wholesale and distribution, and travel, hospitality and leisure. Consumer goods industry in business parlance refers to tangible commodities used by the consumer.


Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) or Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG)
