意味 Meaning：Consumer goods are a type of goods consumed in a short period of time. For example, food such as apples and tangerines, household products such as paper and cloth, and energy such as electricity and gasoline are all consumer goods.
解説 Commentary：In some cases, consumer goods are further divided into durable goods and non-durable goods by the period of use. For example, home appliances and furniture are consumer goods not consumed immediately but used continuously, so they fall into the category of durable goods.
