An intensely competitive industry with increasing external pressures
A multi-faceted market with unique trends and challenges for each product and for the larger segment creates significant industry dynamics in CPG and retail. E-commerce continues to impact traditional models, with each finding ways to stay competitive. AI is expected to create fundamental disruptions even as compliance and regulatory pressures, supply chain management, and a consumer with ever-increasing options transform the business.
Major demand trends in the industry such as automation and concentration of trade; a more affluent and aware, digitally-native customer; and rise of green and value segments coupled with external factors such as rising trade protectionism, labour issues and surging energy cost are creating a minefield navigable only with in-depth data analytics and insights. From predicting input costs to understanding consumer behaviour, businesses across the value chain now need real-time expert intelligence to succeed.
Making sense of complex industry dynamics
The growth of e-commerce, increasing adoption of smartphones and the rise of the intelligent consumer will continue to impact CPG and Retail. Changing political and trade equations, and stress on protectionism will also affect the near future. Companies adapting to newer business models such as direct-to-consumer or app-based sales will need cohesive data insights that make sense of the varied and seemingly endless information flow.
