The world around us

To achieve this, it is necessary to act proactively on trends, new legal requirements and changing expectations from stakeholders regarding environmental, social and ethical responsibility and performance.
Experiences are the new luxury over owning things. They can be digital as well as in real life but experiences as daily escapism are going digital.
A smart city is the result of urbanization together with increased importance of cities as hubs for economy where technology is used to solve urban problems.
The ethical consumer is trying to make positive decisions about what they buy and look for a solution to the negative impact consumerism ia having on the world. Awareness, availability and affordability drive consumers’ interest in ethical living.
People work in new ways, as entrepreneurs, as employees from home and beyond traditional pension ages. Advances in tech- nology replaces humans in more and more areas.
Awareness about the environment, fears of welfare-related diseases and environmental issues gives consumers a wish for a heathy life.
Connectivity has a profound effect on people, affecting for example communication and consumption of goods and entertainment.
The growth of single households, different constellations of people raising children in new ways compared to the old “married couple with children” is emerging.
Environmental pressures push actors in the market to lessen waste, reuse materials and repair products instead of the linear model of produce, use and dispose.
The economic center in the world is moving, east to Asia but also south to the Middle East and Africa, developing new markets and new demands. Given the vast potential in terms of income growth, Asia is set to become the backbone of con- sumer markets over the coming decades.
The middle class in mature markets has not gained any income increases for a long time, and consumers are trading down in some product categories to be able to go up in others.
Sharing the access to goods and services instead of ownership, is growing across industries, business to consumer and peer to peer or a mix of the two.
Migration leads to multiculturalism growing in primarily the mature markets. Risk of conflicts between different groups in society and the rise of far-right movements are realities.
