Trend Sights Analysis: Product Specificity Addressing the consumer need to share products, services, and experiences

Press Release   •   Nov 15, 2016 05:27 EST


A counter-trend amid the ubiquity of mass-market products and brands is the search for more bespoke, personalized products and services. "Mass customization" is being adopted as consumer-facing companies seek to capitalize on demand for greater product variety and individualization. Products that meet more personal needs are perceived as offering superior value.

Key Findings

"Just-for-me" product solutions appeal to today's self-expressive and individualistic consumers who reject a "one-size-fits-all" approach to consumption/usage of products. 41% of global consumers believe that customization/personalization claims have a favorable influence on their perception of a product.

Opportunities exist for manufacturers to create new, more specific consumption niches through day part-targeting, and products that are seasonal/holiday-inspired or target sports/activities or social occasions. Over a quarter of global consumers find a food/drink product that is advertised for a specific time of the day or night appealing.

Consumers are moderating their intake of products and ingredients to promote healthy lifestyles, spurring demand for innovation based on portion control, offering low-ABV alcohol and allergen-free formulations.
