The Quest for Convenience

IN TODAY’S HYPERCONNECTED WORLD, CONVENIENCE IS THE ULTIMATE CURRENCY

FMCG and Retail | 07-08-2018

Rising internet penetration, denser urban locations, faster paced lifestyles and challenging working hours are adding more and more layers of complexity to consumers’ lives. According to the World Health Organization, “workplace stress is the health epidemic of the 21st century,” and multiple agencies have tracked the steady rise of anxiety related illnesses around the world. Consumers are feeling more stretched than ever before, and are increasingly striving for convenient solutions which help to simplify their busy lives.

Around the globe, consumers need and look for convenience in all forms—whether simplicity, time saving or suitability. When it comes to the fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) space, convenience is not only about store formats, products or packaging. It means more than the latest technologies or new engagement strategies. Rather, it is about every encounter, interaction and action that can help fulfil consumers’ growing demand for efficiency.

The Nielsen Quest for Convenience report looks at changing consumer needs around the world, specifically focusing on factors driving consumers’ increasing need for convenience, to provide global FMCG players with key insights, indicators and solutions to successfully tap into the rapidly rising need for convenience.
