All the vital news, analysis, and commentary curated by our industry experts.

Health and wellness remain a priority for consumers when choosing products and services. COVID-19 has exacerbated consumers’ concern for their health and wellbeing, which is likely to remain their key priority. More than half percent of the consumers are health-driven, where there is a minimal change in their pattern behavior from 2018 to 2021. Consumers these days have become more health-conscious because of the changes in the environment around them. Consumers these days take the environment and ethical responsibility seriously because health crisis becomes a crucial factor influencing them to do so. The consumer survey insights report helps in identifying the megatrends and their influence on the behavioral pattern of consumers worldwide.

What are the key megatrends and how are they influencing the consumers during the pandemic?

Central and South American consumers are driven by health concerns more than their global counterparts

Central and South American consumers are getting more health-driven day by day.  As a result, consumers in the region are very concerned about their health, being highly influenced by how products may impact their health and wellbeing across all surveyed generations. Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, and Peru are the top countries in Central and South America that have been affected by the pandemic. As a result, consumers in the region are very concerned about their health, being highly influenced by how products may impact their health and wellbeing

Eco-conscious consumers are attentive to environmentally friendly packaging

The inadvertent environmental benefits of the COVID-19 pandemic have compelled consumers to reassess their dependence on indulgences such as animal products and carbon-intensive behaviors. More than half of consumers in Central and South America are often or always influenced by how ethical, environmentally friendly, or socially responsible products or services are, and the rest consider environmentally friendly packaging an essential driver. The rapid social, technological, and environmental changes that consumers have experienced have galvanized them to make changes in their own lifestyles and demand change from governments and businesses to secure a more sustainable future.

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic remains a key concern

The personal financial situation is the factor that consumers are mostly worried about during the pandemic. With the financial and economic impact caused by the pandemic, consumers are still quiet or extremely concerned about their own personal situation, which is impacting their purchase decisions. The ongoing COVID-19 crisis has forced consumers to consider their internal health and wellbeing, and hence they expect brands to share that information more than updates about the latest launches, product trends, or initiatives.

Household size influences purchase decisions

Highly diverse household structures are becoming more widespread and accepted as part of the norm of modern, progressive societies, influencing attitudes and behaviors and associated innovation. An increased number of people within a household also reliably boosts the influence and frequency of several purchase decisions.

Business Intelligence & Marketing Manager, SAL Heavy Lift

“COVID-19 has caused significant interference to our business and the COVID-19 intelligence from GlobalData has helped us reach better decisions around strategy. These two highlights have helped enormously to understand the projections into the future concerning our business units, we also utilise the project database to source new projects for Liebherr-Werk to use as an additional source to pitch for new business.”

Market Analyst & Management, Liebherr-Werk

Your daily news has saved me a lot of time and keeps me up-to-date with what is happening in the market, I like that you almost always have a link to the source origin. We also use your market data in our Strategic Business Process to support our business decisions. By having everything in one place on the Intelligence Center it has saved me a lot of time versus looking on different sources, the alert function also helps with this.

Head of Key Accounts, Saab AB

Having used several other market research companies, I find that GlobalData manages to provide that ‘difficult-to-get’ market data that others can’t, as well as very diverse and complete consumer surveys.

Marketing Intelligence Manager, Portugal Foods

Our experience with GlobalData has been very good, from the platform itself to the people. I find that the analysts and the account team have a high level of customer focus and responsiveness and therefore I can always rely on. The platform is more holistic than other providers. It is convenient and almost like a one stop shop. The pricing suite is highly competitive and value for our organisation.

I like reports that inform new segments such as the analysis on generation Z, millennials, the impact of COVID 19 to our banking customers and their new channel habits. Secondly the specialist insight on affluent sector significantly increases our understanding about this group of customers. The combination of those give us depth and breadth of the evolving market.

I’m in the business of answering and helping people make decisions so with the intelligence center I can do that, effectively and efficiently. I can share quickly key insights that answer and satisfy our country stakeholders by giving them many quality studies and primary research about competitive landscape beyond the outlook of our bank. It helps me be seen as an advisory partner and that makes a big difference. A big benefit of our subscription is that no one holds the whole data and because it allows so many people, so many different parts of our organisation have access, it enables all teams to have the same level of knowledge and decision support.

Head of Customer Insight and Research, Standard Chartered

“I know that I can always rely on Globaldata’s work when I’m searching for the right consumer and market insights. I use Globaldata insights to understand the changing market & consumer landscape and help create better taste & wellbeing solutions for our customers in food, beverage and healthcare industries.

Globaldata has the right data and the reports are of very high quality compared to your competitors. Globaldata not only has overall market sizes & consumer insights on food & beverages but also provides insights at the ingredient & flavour level. That is key for B2B companies like Givaudan. This way we understand our customers’ business and also gain insight to our unique industry”

Head of Consumer Sensory Insights, Givaudan

GlobalData provides a great range of information and reports on various sectors that is highly relevant, timely, easy to access and utilise.  The reports and data dashboards help engagement with clients; they provide valuable industry and market insights that can enrich client conversations and can help in the shaping of value propositions. Moreover, using GlobalData products has helped increase my knowledge of the finance sector, the players within it, and the general threats and opportunities.

I find the consumer surveys that are carried out to be extremely beneficial and not something I have seen anywhere else. They provided an insightful view of why and which consumers take (or don’t) particular financial products. This can help shape conversations with clients to ensure they make the right strategic decisions for their business.

One of the challenges I have found is that data in the payments space is often piecemeal. With GD all of the data I need is in one place, but it also comes with additional market reports that provide useful extra context and information. Having the ability to set-up alerts on relevant movements in the industry, be it competitors or customers, and have them emailed directly to me, ensures I get early sight of industry activity and don’t have to search for news.
