Consumer Vision: Executive Summary

Before the global pandemic brought the world to a standstill, we began charting the long-term consumer trends that would shape the next decade. Little did we know how quickly that analysis would be challenged.

Now, as brands look to chart a new path to recovery and growth, we’ve updated our analysis to provide a roadmap to 2030.

Based on interviews with world-renowned futurists, academics, authors and experts; multiple proprietary consumer surveys; a comprehensive innovation patent scan; and extensive secondary research and case study analysis, we present the dentsu consumer vision.

Against a backdrop of disruption and uncertainty, this is essential reading for anyone wanting to understand and build empathy with the consumers that will shape their future.

To help simplify such a huge undertaking, we’ve boiled down our analysis to four themes, each underpinned by three key trends – not by design, but by thorough, bottom-up identification, assessment, and prioritisation.

We’ve also proposed recommendations for brands across each trend. Together, these can help brands develop what we call inclusive intelligence – the ability to incorporate new views, values and behaviours into their value proposition against a backdrop of widening inequality and ethical complexity.
