Trend Rising presentation

While 2020 showcased retail Darwinism at its most impactful, retail brands have also evolved at speed. In 2021 and beyond, end-to-end retail processes must be cost-effective, relevant, sustainable and beneficial not only for consumers but for retail brands too. 

In this presentation, we explore the global mindset shifts and six trends emerging across the sector, including:

: Moral Commerce

The Black Lives Matter movement and the climate emergency are acting as catalysts for shoppers to make more conscious purchases.

: Repurposed Retail

Covid-19 is pushing retailers to explore ways to repurpose their stores to offer new experiences or community-focused formats.

: Studio Stores

Bricks-and-mortar stores are finding a new purpose through malleable, interactive spaces.


Macrotrend presentation

Eco-venience Retail

Accelerating e-commerce and demands for expedited delivery are forcing a new retail framework that puts eco-conscious practices central to brands’ operations.

This comes amid global online growth for retail over the last 12 months. Yet, as shoppers shift their spending online, strain on supply chains and the effect of expedited shipping and returns are exacerbating retail’s environmental impact.

In 2021, companies must respond with Eco-venience Retail, a fresh framework for supply chains, logistics and consumer reach, as convenience and care for the environment become ever-more intertwined. This presentation covers:

: Drivers

Companies are assessing the long-term implications for global supply chains, fragmented store networks and an ever-more conscious customer.

: Insight

Retailers are exploring how to combine convenience and sustainability through services and customer experiences that are hyper-local, efficient and eco-conscious.

: Foresight

By the 2030s, Eco-venience Retail will have augmented brands’ online presence, elevated the store experience and turned retail supply chains into brand storytelling.
