Retail Trends 2020 and beyond

10 shifts and drivers that will disrupt the way we buy and sell

The perpetual advance of neoteric technology and shifting of political, societal and cultural norms mean external forces beyond our control will forever shape the way we do business. Some will be opportune, presenting fresh ways to create meaningful, commercial relationships with the people we wish to, while others will disrupt and unsettle the paradigms on which these commercial relationships were formerly based. 

Gender is one such example. We could not have imagined 10 years ago that an idea as progressive as gender fluidity would force a re-examination of the way we make, merchandise, and market goods. But it has, and we are only at the beginning of this journey. 

Technologies such as Blockchain present new ways to imbue traceability, accountability and ultimately transparency in products and process. This presents distinct advantages in procurement, safety and CSR yet is highly under utilised by retailers and brands. 

In this report you will find ten shifts and drivers that we believe will or already are fundamentally changing retail. Use them to prepare for or to drive change in your business, allowing you to gain an edge over competition and present customers with an environment and service that is more in tune with their mindset and needs.
