The four key trends – in summary


  1. Instantly Instagrammable
    There is an increased emphasis on buyer experience. As convenience is taken for granted and choice becomes infinite, consumers are now seeking unique experiences. We take a look at what those experiences are and how you can create them.
  2. Open Opportunities
    Another trend can be seen in deepened levels of collaboration within the supply chain. Tech-enabled data sharing is unlocking new opportunities through close partnerships across the supply eco-system. Let us share examples of how this collaboration could help you find new efficiencies.
  3. Conscious Consumption
    Environmental awareness amongst consumers is rising faster than ever – causing huge shifts in shopping preferences and buying behaviours. What are the factors behind the rapid rise of the ethical consumer? We document the trend and report on how brands can build and convey trust in the battle to win the hearts and minds of the eco-conscious consumer.
  4. Green Government
    Lastly, it is not just consumers who are driving change. Legislation is changing rapidly, and we will be working within a much stricter regulatory framework in the coming years, triggering shifts in materials and solutions. Most retail brands are reacting – the smartest ones are anticipating innovatively new legislation.
