The ‘Global and Regional Mega-Trends: Understanding Consumer Attitudes and Behaviors in Convenience' report examines how consumer attitudes and behaviour across FMCG markets are being shaped by a lack of time or willingness to spend time on everyday activities such as cooking. The report examines how the concept of convenience is evolving, the implications from a new product development perspective and the challenges faced by the industry when launching convenient products

Key Findings

  • Time-scarcity is impacting on people's ability to lead a healthy lifestyle. Consumers are frequently skipping breakfast, lunch and dinner and substituting these with alternatives such as snacks or soft drinks. This contradicts consumers' desires to lead healthier lifestyle and highlights a big opportunity for healthy snack products
  • Time-scarcity is also impacting on the mental wellbeing of people, with many reporting a lack of energy and also feeling that they do not have as much time as they would like to spend on more favorable activities with their friends and families. This highlights the opportunity to position convenience products around enabling consumers to improve their work/life balance - promoting the benefits of the products rather than the features
  • Convenience can also be linked to a lack of desire to spend time on tasks such as cooking as opposed to just inability to be able to do so. However, despite not wanting to spend time on certain tasks, people also do not want to trade off on other product attributes such as taste and health. This means that convenience products should not over-promoted around convenience but instead more sensory attributes such as great taste
